FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

On behalf of the entire Covenant Academy community, thank you for your interest in our school. 
 
Covenant is a community of parents, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and grandparents “striving side by side for the faith of the gospel” (Philippians 1:27). Our very name, Covenant, has significant meaning and informs what we do each day. We recognize the God-given responsibility laid out before us to partner with families in the educational upbringing of their children. We embrace our mission to “glorify God by teaching for mastery and training for servant leadership in the knowledge of the Lord." 


We have a rich tradition for excellent academics and athletics.  It is our goal to build young men and women who are strong in body, soul, and spirit.

 
As you explore Covenant Academy, there are three words you will hear frequently: Classical. Christian. Community. Classical Christian education uses Christian truth combined with the classical tradition and methodology to raise a generation of critical thinkers that are lifelong learners and cultural influencers. Our faculty and staff pursue excellence daily to nurture the pursuit of what is true, good, and beautiful.


I have served as an educator for many years in the role of principal, agriculture teacher, and special education teacher. My experience confirms that Covenant Academy is different from other education options. Our classically trianed, talented, and godly faculty and staff, along with our parent volunteers, are true difference makers. Bible classes, chapel, athletics, fine arts, field trips, historical feasts that bring learning to life, and Senior Thesis presentations…these are some of what make Covenant Academy a place of excellence in education and spiritual development. 


We encourage you to learn more about Covenant Academy in person and I personally look forward to an opportunity to host you and your family on our campus so you can experience our Christ-centered covenantal community for yourself. 
 
 
Soli deo gloria,
Mike Parker
