A Classical Approach

The Covenant Preparatory School equips students with the ability to think critically and communicate well via a three-stage classical approach to education.

STAGE 1: GRAMMAR

The Grammar stage (elementary years) is primarily spent on learning and memorizing facts and supporting information, providing students with a solid foundation of factual information.

STAGE 2: LOGIC

The Logic stage (middle school years) is oriented toward the organization and analysis of facts. Students are exposed to various schools of thought and are trained to analyze information and think logically.

STAGE 3: RHETORIC

The Rhetoric stage (high school years) is dedicated to persuasive expression (written and oral). Students are prepared to think critically and communicate their point of view persuasively by engaging in lively subject discussions with peers and instructors.

COURSES & TEXTBOOKS


Courses are based on curriculum guides written from a biblical framework and include field trips, mission trips and service projects. All courses are reviewed and updated annually to reflect best practices.

Textbooks may or may not be from Christian publishers;  however, when a secular book is used, biblical principles are integrated by the instructor throughout the course.
