Covenant Christian School > Admissions > Admissions Criteria


Covenant Christian School is a college preparatory school with a strong academic focus. Our school was founded to partner with Christian parents in accordance with our belief that God has a covenantal relationship with believing families. Ultimately, our goals are to prepare children academically for life and future schooling, to nurture them to maturity in their faith, and to train them in a Biblical worldview in all areas of learning.
In accordance with our philosophy, we require that parents support our teaching in accordance with our core values. We encourage families to be active members of a local evangelical church (or regular attendees if the church does not have official membership). “Evangelical church” is defined as a church that adheres to at least the following fundamental Christian beliefs:

• Infallibility/Inerrancy of the Bible as only found in the 66 books in the Old and New Testament
• God as Trinity (one God, three persons)
• Christ’s Person: Divine and human natures in one person; virgin birth; Christ’s lordship
• Christ’s Work: Substitutionary atonement; sinless life; bodily resurrection; final coming in blessing/judgment
• Salvation: Justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone

If not a professing Christian, we ask that parents support our mission and vision of teaching God’s Word, and exhibit a desire for their child to pursue an understanding of Christianity.

Additional Requirements:
A student’s discipline record and academic ability to succeed at CCS must be satisfactory in order to be considered for admission. Additionally, CCS must be confident of its ability to meet the educational needs of the student.
Final acceptance of all students will be decided by the administration. All new students enter on probation for the first semester and the administration reserves the right to continue that probation for discipleship or other purposes.

In addition to the above requirements, September 1st is the cut-off birthday date for children entering kindergarten and first grade. (Children must be age five (5) years old on or before September 1st for kindergarten and six (6) years old for first grade). Exceptions to this policy are on a case-by-case basis.
