We have three children at Covenant Life School. We so appreciate the teacher's investing in our children, with smaller classrooms and really getting to know our children. The academics are strong, the spiritual formation is build into the every day in the classroom. The children are comfortable talking about God, and other spiritual aspects of life. So grateful that my children have the freedom to learn about, and worship God in the classroom.

We have attended two Christian schools. At CLS, the theological training is deep and serious -- even elementary kids come home thinking about what it means to believe in Jesus, and the meaning of his life and death. But at the "other" school, kids simply sang Jesus songs and were forced to recite silly pledges to believe in Jesus. Also, at CLS, teachers teach a rigorous traditional curriculum -- the kids are challenged in math, science, and phonics with the same strong curriculum products they would receive at other excellent private schools. Some Christian schools only use curriculum that is published exclusively by Christian publishers (why would my son's MATH book need to have Jesus on every page?). If you want a world-class private school education, with excellent bible teaching and character development, this is the school for you.

My child attends Covenant Life School in Gaithersburg, MD. I've never experienced such a wonderful sense of community before. The teachers and staff really care for each child and are committed to their success. I volunteer at the school and find that God blesses me every time I serve. I can't imagine my child getting his education anywhere else! CLS is the best!

My daughter loves the school! Her teacher is so fun and creative and really loves the children. I will definitely send all my kids there when they are old enough.

We wanted a school for our 3 children that would give a well rounded world view instead of just one.

All of our kids have gone to Covenant Life School. Two have graduated, and when all is done, yes, they have scholarships, however, what is most important to me, is they desire to pursue God and godliness. I believe Covenant Life and its staff have had a lot to do with their character and love for God and others.

A great combination of academic excellence and character development. That is what I love about Covenant Life School. My wife and I were so encouraged and blown away after our first parent-teacher conference. The teacher enthusiastically communicated the abilities and strengths of our child and then spent some time telling us how she could grow in influencing others to pursue godly character. We asked her a few questions on how we as parents could partner with her to contribute in her growth and she gave us so much wise and helpful advice. We both left thinking that we'd love to go back to school and have teachers like her. We highly recommend Covenant Life School!

We've felt loved and cared for at this school. The teachers have been attentive to our children's needs and have continually sought ways to help them grow academically and spiritually. I love that my children are being taught with a biblical worldview.

Our five children attended and it has been a great experience! The youngest just graduated from CLS. Our kids received individualized care (both academic and spiritual) from teachers and administration alike - oversight and counsel were excellent. Friendships among the students are sweet and genuine. I'm eager to see my grandchildren there too. One is already attending. Our kids easily obtained scholarships because of the quality of the education they received at CLS.

We have been so impressed with the individual care one of our sons has received at the school. With transitioning from homeschooling and being diagnosed with a learning disability we were worried our son would be discouraged. On the contrary, he is loving school and looks forward to all the help he is getting.

Covenant Life School is a wonderful school! Not only have my children benefitted from the high academic standards, but they have been surrounded by great friends and teachers that care beyond the classroom. I had children in the elementary school who transferred into public middle school into all honors and advanced classes. Upon returning to Covenant Life, they had suffered a significant academic loss, especially in math. This validated my suspicion that CLS's academics are challenging and above par. I love that teachers will speak into my children's lives, not only about life building topics, but also about their character and most importantly their spiritual lives. I equally love the fact that I am invited and encouraged as a parent to participate in my child's school experience. I wouldn't want my children to be anywhere else.

All 3 of my children attended Covenant Life School and it was a wonderful experience for all of them. They were challenged academically and guided spiritually. They all made lasting friendships many of which continued into their college years and beyond. They were very well prepared for college and were able to get excellent merit-based scholarships due to the academic preparation they received. I would strongly recommend CLS to everyone!

When my daughters joined this school in the middle of fifth grade they were a bit resistant to the idea. By the end of the school year they were tightly knit with their classmates and thanking me for putting them in the school. The school community is such a blessing to me and my daughters. As a single Dad I need all the help I can get. The teachers, faculty, other parents, and even the other students genuinely care, pray for, counsel, and love the students and their families. My girls just graduated and we are really going to miss all the love and fun and activity at CLS. Still, because of this school, they have been very well prepared academically and personally to launch into their college careers. As the lowest cost private school in montgomery county, it is a fabulous bargain--easily worth twice the tuition. The relationships, however, are priceless.

CLS faculty and staff love teaching and love their students. They teach from a strong biblical worldview and help all students, from per-school through 12th grade, see the importance of what they're learning through the lens of Scripture. I love this school!

We've had two students enroll at Covenant Life. One of our children probably would have done well anywhere, but our other child has ADD and has benefited greatly from the caring, compassionate teachers. Not that it's been a walk in the park by any stretch... CLS academics are tough; this is definitely a college-prep school. However, my child has had a better experience here than I believe she would have had elsewhere, and the teachers, principals and office staff are kind and willing to work with you.
