Who We Are

Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Covenant Christian Academy’s website. Your interest shows your recognition that a challenging, bible-based education is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.

We understand that selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. At Covenant Christian Academy, we see our role as partnering with you as you train your child according to God’s word.

Founded in 1979, our success has been built on three foundational pillars. First, we are a Christian institution, founded and maintained for God’s glory above all other considerations. We would not exist if it were not for the grace of God, and we know He is our eternal sustainer. As a result, the greatest goal of education is in directing students to worship their creator and savior. This then bolsters learning in all areas, as students work from a grounded perspective that acknowledges absolute truth and the potential for real knowledge.

Second, we are classical both in educational content and pedagogical structures. We take the very best of human history to craft a program that answers the educational needs of God’s people, and we apply it in a manner that makes them effective for His purposes in a rapidly changing society. The classical liberal arts are the backbone of this program. The Trivium (Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric) unites with the great works of Western civilization to build in-depth thinking skills and rhetorical prowess. We also lead the students through an updated set of the mathematical and scientific arts. In the classical era this was the Quadrivium (Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy). The complete program includes tremendous classical and contemporary language studies, outstanding fine arts, and state-championship caliber physical training and athletics. All these elements build well-rounded graduates who are equipped to pursue whatever college and life calling God reveals.

Third, we are a covenant family, committed to the loving relationships that should exemplify God’s people. Our responsibility as a school is to partner with parents in the education of their children. We must maintain biblical standards while recognizing that we live under grace. This strange paradox is achieved only in love. The Apostle John went to great lengths to preserve this perspective for the Church. In the end, it is not enough that we live in community. We must be family.

We hope that you will prayerfully consider Covenant Christian Academy. It would be our honor to partner with you to educate your child.

For His Glory,

Keith J. Castello
