Classical, Christian education follows a different blueprint than other educational models, because the goals are ultimately different. We want students to enjoy and reflect God’s truth and beauty, and we strive to do this by challenging them with meaningful and awe-inspiring ideas. We want our students to love what they are learning and develop the critical thinking skills that will ignite and foster their own pursuit of knowledge. Our goal is for students to excel in a robust academic experience, while also being inspired by God’s glory and being challenged to live virtuous lives.
A visit to Covenant is bound to exhibit that our students are excited about learning. They love solving math problems on whiteboards, and they cheer when we practice vocabulary in Latin. Some students spend every free moment of their time solving Rubik’s cubes or memorizing 300 digits of pi. In class, students ask me so many questions about math, languages, and other topics that I have to ask them submit their questions in writing for me to answer later. Our students simply love to learn!
