From The Covenant School

The Covenant School, a coeducational day school in Charlottesville, VA, asks students What Kind of Person Do You Want to Be? and What Kind of Life Do Want to Live? We are committed to teaching the next generation to live well from Pre-K through Grade 12.

Founded in 1985 as a bold experiment in melding a rigorous academic environment with the guiding principles of a non-denominational Christian culture, The Covenant School has served the central Virginia area for over 30 years. The Covenant School was the first Christian school in Virginia to have been accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and remains true today to Academic Excellence under the Sovereignty of God.

Today, two campuses serve over 560 students from Pre-K through Grade 12, and over 1,000 alumni are engaging the world as leaders in their professions, their churches, and their communities.
