Our Story


Sarah '16

UVA Volleyball Player

"Covenant Day offered the best of both worlds in my academic and athletic endeavors. I was blessed with teachers and coaches who were passionate not only about my growth in the classroom and on the court, but also my spiritual growth."

Odlin '18

International Student

"I believe Covenant Day prepared me well for college. I learned to write well, give presentations, and study for tests. In my Bible classes in college, I found that I am able to have mature conversations with my professors about God and who He is."


The Classic Magazine

Published twice a year for the CDS Community

Throughout each edition of The Classic, our hope is to share the many beautiful stories of Covenant Day. Every student, parent, teacher, grandparent, friend, staff member, and alum has unique gifts and experiences that make up our school community.

Lindsay & Wes Barry

Lower School Parents

“What has impressed us the most about the faculty, staff, and families at Covenant Day is their ability to reinforce the core values and biblical training that we have tried to instill in our children. We embrace our role as parents to be the primary disciple-makers in our kids' lives, but to have a partner like CDS speak the same truth when our kids are tired of listening to us has been a tremendous gift to our family.”


Jordan '21

ContainIt Student Leader

"ContainIt has helped me navigate making tough decisions while developing critical thinking skills to complete real tasks with real purpose. I was greatly impacted by our trip to Pine Ridge Reservation and was inspired by the Lakota people and their hearts."

Nick Bash

CDS Senior

"The arts program at Covenant Day has helped grow me as a critical thinker, a collaborative team player, and a God-glorifying artist. The community and passion surrounding the arts at Covenant Day is a fantastic place to live, learn, and grow and is a central part of my student experience at CDS."

Beca Burnett

Parent & Cross-Cultural Coordinator

"The commitment that faculty have made to honor the Lord in everything they do, especially in delivering academic excellence from a Biblical foundation, is a key to the uniqueness of CDS. They continually teach well from a place of strength grounded in Scripture."

Lucia & Shirley

Sisters & CDS International Students

"Being far from our family is difficult, but Covenant Day gave us a second home. From the moment we stepped foot on campus, everyone has been so friendly and welcoming. The academics are rigorous, but our teachers are always glad to help. Our favorite part about Covenant Day has been getting to know our fabulous host parent and running on the cross country team!"

Brent '14

"Covenant Day instilled in me an awareness that every part of life – academics, career, and family – should be integrated with faith and a biblical worldview. This prepared me to seek it out on my own in college, my first job, and in law school. The aquaponics program impacted me as I went on to spend two months living in Nicaragua. I learned more about the hardships faced by people experiencing poverty but also was able to learn about the vibrant Nicaraguan culture, take Spanish classes, and sample an amazing food scene."
