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!
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.
