Virtual Admissions during COVID-19

Seeking the Next Step for Your Child during the Pandemic?

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we realize you are in a difficult position while searching for the next step in schooling for your child.

Although our school building is closed, our community is flourishing through our e-learning and online platforms.  What does e-learning look like right now at Covenant? Our teachers are teaching, students are engaging in live discussions, and our curriculum is providing a place of stability and continuity. We are grateful to our dedicated teachers who have chosen to embrace this new approach to education.  The joy of learning from home has become a bright spot in our days during a dark time in our world.

We cannot open the school building to tours currently, but our administration, staff, and teachers are available to assist you with any questions you might have during your journey to find the right school for the 2020-2021 school year.  Our principal, Miss Eekhoff, and I are more than happy to schedule an individual conference to answer any questions you might have about our school or admissions process during this time.

In Christ,


Dr. Tom Stoner, Ed.D.
Head of School

Begin Your Application

The Enrollment Process

Academic Evaluation

Once you have submitted your application, your child's academic evaluation will take place through a virtual setting.

Parent Meeting

Your child's application status will be discussed. This is your time to get to know us better and get your questions answered.

Secure Your Enrollment

Finalize your enrollment by indicating your intent to enroll and submit your enrollment fee to secure your child's spot for the 2020-2021 school year.

How long does the admissions process take?

We are happy to walk alongside you through the admissions process. This simple process is typically smooth and timely, depending upon how quickly you desire to submit your materials and secure a spot in a classroom. Once an application has been submitted, our office staff will reach out to you to schedule your child’s testing and placement session. After evaluation, a parent interview will be set that allows us to get to know your family better. Within just a few days, you will receive a notice of acceptance if we feel your child will thrive at Covenant. We welcome questions at any time throughout the process to ensure you have the answers you need in as timely a way as possible.

How do you determine if my child is a fit for the school?

Ensuring a child is a good fit for the school is beneficial to the child, the family, our teachers, and the other students. Our hope is that every child that is accepted into our school will feel at home and thrive within our specially designed curriculum. If your child is not accepted, in most cases we simply feel we do not have the resources needed to help your child be a success within our environment. Making this decision prior to enrollment helps prevent greater struggles down the road.

What if my child has special needs?

We do not currently have the ability to provide resources for students with significant special needs. We encourage you to call our office to have a conversation prior to applying. In some situations, students with certain learning struggles can thrive at Covenant as long as the student can function well in the general education classroom and families/students are eager and committed to taking on the additional work this might require at home.

Do you have to be a member of a church to attend?

While Covenant is a Christian school, not everyone who attends our school is a Christian or a member of a church. Biblical beliefs and worldview are interwoven throughout all subject areas, and all faculty and staff profess the Christian faith. Many traditions of Christian belief are represented within our community. We ask that all Covenant families acknowledge and support the teachings we hold dear at our school. Please see our Statement of Faith for more information.
