MISSION AND VISION
Covenant owes its existence to the consistent and persistent prayers of a group of concerned parents. The school was thus founded to partner with Christian parents in fulfilling their God-given directive to train and educate their children. Covenant views itself as an extension of the educational ministry of the home.
To provide a college-preparatory education based on Christian values and Biblical principles and to assist parents in developing individuals of strong intellect, spirit, body, and heart.
To be committed to serving Jesus Christ as a distinguished school.

Our Doctrine Statement
The following statements form the foundation of beliefs upon which The Covenant Preparatory School has been established. The substance of these statements is considered primary doctrine of Covenant; secondary or divisive doctrines or issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When these types of doctrine or issues arise, they will be referred to the family and local churches for final authority.
- We believe in one God, Creator of the universe, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Triune God has created man in His own image and has called him to manifest and reflect holiness through obedience to His commandments. Because man has woefully fallen in this responsibility and entered into a state of moral corruption, he has subsequently become estranged from his Creator.
- We believe that because of a profound love for His creation, God has initiated a plan of redemption, which He has accomplished on behalf of His people in the realm of temporal history. The apex of this redemption is found in the historical incarnation of God in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. We confess Jesus to be the Messiah of Old Testament prophecy, being at the same time fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and He lived a sinless life of perfect obedience. He was crucified as a substitutionary atonement for sinners. He was raised from the dead on the third day and is sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding on behalf of His people.
- We believe that we receive salvation from the penalty of sin and the just wrath of God by grace alone, through faith alone, on the merit of Christ alone.
- We believe that the risen and ascended Christ has sent His Holy Spirit to dwell in the hearts of His people, effecting their regeneration and operating in their sanctification to enable them to live Godly lives.
- We believe that the Bible in its entirety, being the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, which are Genesis through Malachi and Matthew through Revelation respectively, is divine revelation. We submit to its authority, acknowledging it to be inerrantly inspired by God and carrying the full weight of His authority.
- We believe in the Lordship of Christ over all of life. We believe that God’s commandments are relevant and necessary to our present culture and that our faith should be visible in concrete models of personal and social behavior. We seek to be faithful disciples of Christ, pursuing our callings in love and obedience until He comes again to consummate His kingdom.
- We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: They that are saved, to the resurrection of life and eternal joy, and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.
