WONDERFUL!! We have all of our children here at CCS..and we LOVE it. After homeschoolingfor years, and another Christian school, God led us to CCS. We couldnt be happier. The curriculum is challenging and comprehensive. They teach LAtin early on, and the older grades combine History, Literature and Theology for a more well rounded view of all subjects. And the QUALITY of the curriculum is amazing! But the best part of the school is the people. The staff, administration and families involved are truly like no other. They set a Godly example for our children in life, attitude and word. We wouldn't have them at any other school. Thankyou CCS!!

I teach music at CCS and am now in my fourth year. All three of my boys attend school here. We homeschooled in a classical method until we came to CCS. Up to then, we had no alternative. I can't help but take this opportunity to share what a fabulous culture there is at CCS, specifically with regard to music and theater. Because of our school's size and our close relationships across the different age and grade levels, I have the unique opportunity to craft a cohesive music education program starting at age 2 and continues through graduation in 12th grade. We don't focus on turning everyone into a professional musician, but it's important to make sure every child becomes musically intelligent and learns the skills of discipline and resiliency that will help them academically in their later educational years, even in sports. If you are interested in a school that cultivates relationships across all levels of the organization in an effort to make sure every child has opportunities to excel at their most effective pace, contact our school to attend an open house. You will fall in love with the teachers and the other parents you see volunteering.

Coventry Christian Schools has the best school atmosphere that I have ever seen, after myself having attended Christian schools throughout my entire education. The faculty and staff are courteous and considerate. The students are helpful and kind. I have been surprised and delighted by the humility and unity that I have encountered here as a new faculty member. CCS has an integrated, biblical vision for education that manifests itself academically, socially, and spiritually.

I was a Coventry kids 23 years ago. Though I only went to Coventry for kindergarden and first grade; they were the best school days I remember out of all my school years. Mr. Niehls always welcomed you with a smile, and you didn't feel like you were going to school, it felt like a second home. I remember fun fairs, and school bus rides singing " who stole the cookie from the cookie jar"?! I also sent my daughter when she was in kindergarden and it was just the same. You were welcomed with Mr. Niehls warm smile and hug. There is a warm presence when you enter Coventry Christian School. It's a feeling of Gods true love and support. And still after all these years I sing the songs I learned and Coventry to my children, " Blue skies and rainbows, and sun beams from heaven". I remember fondly of learning french and sign language at that young of a age;Funnily enough that is mostly the only french and sign language I remember. When my daughter first changed schools, we would drive by Coventry and she would say " can I go back there?" Mr. Niehls dedicated his life to Coventry Christian , and he always made you feel you had a safe place to turn too. God bless you Mr. Niehls!

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Coventry Christian School's nursery and preschool to you. It is a blessing knowing that we could drop our son off to people that we trust and will love him like we do. He was happy to go to school everyday and enjoyed playing with the other kids, staff, and toys. It was precious to receive little hand and feet artwork and mothers day presents throughout the year. This personal touch made us feel at home and apart of our sons school life. In addition to the TLC that our son received, the CCS nursery provides enrichment in helping the kids in their development. The sign language was simply amazing!! The consistency really aided his development. The staff was great at communicating with us as parents. Everyday we received a sheet of paper that gave us an update on eating, sleeping, and activities. This was great in planning our home life in terms of his sleeping and nutritional needs. We would receive periodic updates in terms of his progress in speech, gross and fine motor skills, communication, and relational attributes. CCS combines professionalism with a down-to-earth family environment. Thank you CCS for you love and care!

Our child is in her 4th year at CCS and we are thrilled with the education she is receiving. My husband & I attended public schools and the difference b/w the work I did by 3rd grade and what my child is taught is staggering. They begin to learn how to do book reports and science projects from 1st grade. They are taught Spanish from Kindergarten onward. These are fundamentals that I was not taught (at least thoroughly) until I was a teenager. What is as important to us as academics is the moral/character education she receives. Sometimes you don't realize how much of a diff a Christian education makes until you see your child with other children who attend public schools. These are good kids but there is a. . . coarseness or not as much respectfulness of others as I see in the children at CCS. it is a significant financial sacrifice for us to send our child to CCS but it is an investment in our child that is well worth it.

Again, I am the Director of Advancement and previously served as Secondary School Principal for twelve years. The comments regarding numbers of students attending community college should be clarified. Here are the facts: Historically, 97% of alumni attend four-year universities. 2% attend community college or technical schools, and 1% join the work force. For complete information about colleges which our alumni attend, visit the school's website. Additionally, our teachers are highly qualified, holding state certificates, degrees in their fields, and graduate degrees as well. If you have doubts, when you come to visit, be sure to ask for staff credentials. We are also accredited by the National Christian School Association and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. If you read anything on this site that gives you concern, I suggest that you call the school, schedule a visit, and do your own research. By the very nature of anonymous web postings, you are unlikely to receive fair and balanced or even accurate assessments.

Please note that the assessment of student performance on standardized tests below is inaccurate. I served as the Secondary School Principal for twelve years, moving on to another position in the school this year. Our current 3-year average composite SAT score is 1748. The cumulative average is even higher. This places our school second only to The Hill School in a comparison of all schools in our drawing area (12 districts and all private schools as well). This is even more remarkable since we include all students with learning disabilities and exclude all students who are in our program fewer than two years before testing. Many of those excluded students would be good for our average. Our curriculum does vary greatly from the state's, and this is intentional. We are a private school because we believe in a different philosophy of education. For this reason, we do not utilize the PSSA, which is a test of state curriculum. Our alumni perform well by national standards and are in the top 20% as a group on the nationally-normed Stanford Achievement Tests. We are committed to academic excellence in the classical Christian tradition, and our alumni are a testimony to this.

I am a graduate of Coventry Christian Schools and graduated about 10 years ago. I simply cannot understand the negative comments below. I was accepted into McGill University in Canada, one of the most prestigious universities in the world. CCS helped to prepare me academically, even though teachers cross teach. I had no problems with this and found that students became closer with their teachers when they had more than one class with them. My teachers became part of our family and I can honestly say that there is no other school like CCS as teachers genuinely care about their students. As for students failing the SATs, I think it has less to do with the school curriculum and more to do with the individual students not studying enough or grasping basic principles. Please do not let negative ratings of one parent (as clearly those 2 negative comments were written by the same family) sway your decision to send your child to CCS. It was the best experience of my life and your child would be missing out on an amazing education experience if you choose not to send them there.

Do not send your child here if you intend for them to succeed, first in Christ and then in the world. The school operates under the guise of being a Christian school but follows every secular past time you can think of - Halloween (symbol of witchcraft) is a great example. A large number of their students end up in Community Colleges. Many of the teachers "cross-teach" other courses for which they are not fully qualified and / or accredited for - consequently children learn in snippets but do not follow the FULL and REQUIRED Pennsylvania standard - these gaps are later reflected in SAT scores. NOTE: They DO NOT test to the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) and it is therefore almost impossible to measure how far below the standard they really are. On a final note, the lower schools are where the problem begins and where it is at its worst. Here they teach the absolute bare minimum to get you to send your child there, but should you take the time to examine their curriculum and compare it to the State's performance requirements for K - 8th grade - you will notice how far below standard they are. Our advice, don't let your child be the next statistic for failure!

I started with my first born and now my third wll be attending CCS in 2012 if the lord wills. We have been very happy with school. A challenging education is very important to us as is a sound bible focused education. We are very happy with the school.The teachers are very involved with the kids and very capable. The KG syllabus is outstanding. My kids got a head start in math because of the curriculum at CCS. Compared to public school and other private schools in the area, , my kids are learning so much more. My friend stopped Kumon classes when their kid joined CCS. We love it. The kids look forward to school. I love that they have started teaching Latin in 3rd grade. This will make it easy for the kids to pick up other languages as Latin is the base for most languages. My kids have been going to the school for the past 4 years and we have been very happy. We live 13 miles away but still feel it worth it. Ofcourse there is no perfect school out there but so far I have only good things to say. Thanks you Mr. Neils.

My son attended CCS from K to 1st grade. There is a lot to love. Most of the staff is very kind. The principal & superintendent know every child by name. There is lots of opertunity for parental involvement and the coursework is very challanging. The playground is wonderful. Our top reasons for choosing CCS were that they offered a small class size and the curriculum is more advanced than the local public schools. As a parent considering this school, you should be aware that the coursework is about a year ahead of the public schools, for example, K uses 1st grade texts, 1st uses 2nd and so on. They teach from a fundementalist Protestant Christian worldview, such as New Earth Creationism as part of the science class. This was confusing for our son. We decided to change schools when the class size was increased to 25.

My grandaughter has been a student since Kindergarten, going into 7th soon and I think this school is wonderful. The curriculum is challanging. The values they teach are much needed in today's society. Do they teach their Christian standards? Sure, just like a catholic school teaches their Christian standards. I would recommend this school to any parent who is thinking of a private school.

I want to express how wonderful our experience has been with the CCS teaching staff. My son s teachers are truly Christian role models. I am so thankful that the teachers are blessed with the gift of meeting an individual student's learning, social, and emotional needs. I have noticed such a difference in the teachers from public school compared to CCS. Now, he is not an advanced test score for the school to use to say they are doing a good job. He has teachers who really care if he learns to work hard and do his best. His teachers accept him for who he is and view him as a unique individual while inspiring him to work to his potential. I hope CCS teachers realize the difference they are making in student s lives. We really see the impact they are making and appreciate their time, sacrifices, gifts, and energy.

I began attending CCS in the middle of 2nd grade until I graduated in 2005. I would be lying if I said that I had no bad experiences with this school. However, there will ALWAYS be problems with a school. After all, we're only human. No, the Christian emphasis does not always shine as much as one would like, but there is undeniably one, which is MUCH more than can be found elsewhere. The majority of the faculty is connected with the students, though there are some that are distant; elsewhere, the reverse would be true. I am noticing that the majority of the negative reviews here are from parents that did not seem to be very involved with their child's experience at the school; what are their children saying? Many, many graduates, myself included, return to volunteer or work for CCS, and are very happy with it.

Let me open with the positive: my children did get an amazing education when they attended Coventry Christian. The academic program is outstanding. I will also say that the staff, at least while we were there, were wonderful & we were blessed to have our children under their guidance. Christian worship & instruction is also in place. The problems we had with the school were that it was entirely too exclusive - if you're not a staff member or a church family, you can forget any fellowship. Also plan on devoting your after school life to homework & projects - college style workloads were given from 1st grade on. Finally, in the later years, it felt like the school was more concerned with money & buttering up to those who could provide it than anything else.

I too, was a involved parent, speaking up when I felt the need and gave praise when I thought it was deserved. However, I found that in the long run, it was the administrations way or the highway. Really no room for debate. I do believe that the administration cares about the kids at the school, but their judgement does become clouded when the tough decisions have to be made. May the school continue to forge ahead with Integrity.

I have been a parent at CCS since 1992. I just got done reading all of the reviews for CCS and I am disappointed in the harsh critisizms of the school. Like all schools, there remains good and bad. I chose to help CCS forge ahead and improve things that needed improvement. I spoke up when I needed to and I gave praise when I needed to. Through the years, I have gained an enormouse amount of love and respect for Mark Niehls. His #1 priority is absolutely the welfare of the Coventry Kids. Maybe some parents don't understand the other parts of running a private school. WIthout money, there is no school. However, the focus has always been giving a loving, caring, environment and teach God's word. If everyone had Mark Niehls morals and values, our world would be 100% better. I am grateful for Mark & CCS.

I no longer work at the school because of the administration's lack of concern for the children. It was not what was best for the 'Coventry Kids'. It was all about keeping the school's head above water. The administration swept concerns under the carpet on numerous occasions. FYI, I was an involved parent and dedicated employee, but I no longer believe in CCS.

As a parent an a volunteer at the school for more than 10 years, I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else. All the staff at the school cares for the kids and their well being more than anything. Our children are taught to be respectful, loving, responsible individuals without personal agendas or selfishness in their actions or heart. They are taught to be servant leaders and to do unto other as they would have done unto them...something forgotten by many today.

I once believed in CCS and all it could offer for my child and my family. As an involved parent with classroom activities, support to the school through donations, fundraisers and any other area where we could possibly assisit--we did! I had several meetings with the administration over the past 2 years concerning the disorganization of programs, along with the other issues and then there were summer camp problems. When reviewing the full educational package of what CCS offers, the shortcomings out weighed the pros for my family. To criticize and make such judgements about the parents who have given low ratings does not appear to be very Christian.

My three children are receiving the best education in the tri-county area at CCS! As an educator and school administrator myself, I cannot say enough in praise of CCS. I have experience in both private and public schools, and the integrity, professional staff, academic programs, security, community spirit, and genuine and effective Christian education at CCS is second-to-none. Those who give negative reviews have either not attempted to truly get involved in their children's education at CCS or are the type of parents who would rather criticize than work with the school. Those who get involved find what my wife and I have found--an outstanding Christian institution of learning that is equipping children to be successful in this life and the one to come. The graduates of this school speak volumes. They are students at some of our finest universities and med schools and treasured employees in our local businesses.

We were new to CCS a few years ago and decided to enroll our children after touring the other private schools in our area. We could not be any happier with the experiences we have had. We were always made to feel very welcome. Our children have formed strong bonds with their peers, as well as their teachers. CCS is a blessing to our family.

This is a wonderful school, complete with a loving and caring team of administration and staff. Many reviewers speak of CCS as a family and that couldn't be more true. It starts at the top. It's uncommon to have the superintendent of a school on the premises and accessible to parents at a moment's notice. He knows every child, parent and grandparent by name. The administration and staff are equally accommodating and caring. We consider ourselves tremendously blessed to have our children educated at CCS. It is our opinion that this school is certainly deserving of a 5 star rating.

I am a graduate of Coventry Christian School. I am responding to this post because I can tell you with 100% confidence that there is no one more loving of children and more concerned with their future and happiness than Mr. Niehls, CCS Superintendent. Mr. Niehls is the heart of CCS. He knows the names of every student in that school, and he knows each of them personally on some level. He does not get to know them because it is his job, but because he really cares about his CCS kids. This love extends througout his whole staff and throughout the CCS community. CCS changed my life and the friendships I built there are stronger than any others. I will be sending my children to CCS when they are old enough and I know they will be loved and taught to love those around them.

After reading some of the previous reviews, I can't help but feel disheartened. I attended CCS from 6-12 grades and graduated in 2006. I have completed an unforgettable first year of college but there is no feeling more amazing than returning to CCS and feeling the love and support of the students and staff despite the length of time since we have last seen each other. I previously worked in extended care and currently work summer day camp. The kids mean the world to me and I would do anything for them. I've never regretted my time at CCS. Academics were always of first importance and playing on the basketball team is one of my favorite memories; however, nothing can compare to the long-lasting relationships that are formed. My peers and the staff are honest and caring. Every school has its flaws, but I would have never chosen any other place.

I am a grandparent of a child currently attending CCS - I also have custody of this child. You will never find a more loving, caring place for your child to be educated in so many ways; academically, socially and spiritually. In my experience, the administration, staff and other families are incredibly supportive of one another. The extended care staff is second to none and the Summer Day Camp too. My granddaughter is excited to be at CCS. She loves the Bible studies, the teachers and the other children. It is more like an extended family than a school. Every time she sees the superintendent or her first grade teacher, she races to them to give them her 'power hugs'. I am constantly amazed at the quality of 'Educating for Life' that occurs at this school. I would urge anyone to consider sending their child to CCS.

CCS has been a big disappointment to my family. After watching the overall quality of the school dramatically deteriorating over the years, my children have decided they do not want to return to the school. As a Christian school, the standard of teaching right and wrong should be higher than that of the public school. The administration team has forgotten what their moral and ethical responsibilities are to the children who attend this school. The level of accountability is much lower than that of the public schools in the district. The school continues to focus on it strong academics, while forgetting to teach the children social skill and how to get along with others. 'Educating for Life' should be more than Academics and Finances, it should be integrity, honesty, morals and values. If the school goes back to why it was started, it can once again be a great school.

Our children have gone to CCS for years & are very happy there! At times when our finances got stressed, we considered going to public school but our kids didn't want to leave. CCS really lives up to it's motto 'Educating for Life'. They have helped to lay a strong foundation for our children and not only prepared them for the next academic level, but for life. We appreciate the Christian integration in the curriculum. Our children not only learn what's right or wrong, but why it is so. We have a child with special needs who would probably receive more services in public school, but that's not as important to us as the love & genuine concern the staff at CCS give him. Also, any business needs to have a budget & focus on operating within it.

Three children in the school for more than 10 years and I would not have them go anyplace else. CCS has the typical issues that any school has, but not nearly to the degree or severity. Parent involvement is always a challenge, but not due to the school but rather a growing 'what will you do for me now' attitude of some. This school has a strength of character and depth of concern that is rare in education. My children are growing, not only in education, but into good people. The school is more than facilities and financials. It is one of the lowest tuitioned schools in the area delivering an exceptionally high value for the dollar. I know from experience the strength of a school is based on the participation of it's families, and for those who do share their feelings and concerns with the school, they are successful.

My children have attended CCS for a number of years. Over the past couple of years I have noticed a change in the focus of the school. It has gone to what's best for the children to what is best for the financial position of the school. They have lost sight of their mission statement! Parent involvement is at an all time low. I have seen a change in the dedication of the staff also. As many of the most qualified staff has moved on to other opportunities. As for the education offered by CCS as long as your child doesn't have any special needs they will do fine. The school lacks services for children with any kind learning disabilities. CCS was once a great school, the potential is still there, it's time to remember why it was started and get back to what is important, 'The CCS Kids'

Our children have been at CCS since preschool and are now in elementary school. We have been involved in the school for years. Unfortunately, in the last two years, we've seen a shift in the schools focus from what is best for the students to what is best for the school's pocket book. In our opinion, this has caused a misalignment with the schools original mission statement and has caused a definite decline in the factors that once made CCS a great school. The administration has really lost it's personal touch and is definitely lacking in returning parent phone calls and addressing parent concerns. Unfortunately, we may not re enroll our children next year.

My children have been attending CCS for over 9 years now and we have had a great experience with the school, and we are not a Church of Christ family. The transition to the Secondary program was a big shift in our family, as it is in most families as their children get older. The teachers and administration responded when we expressed problems with our child's adjustment and we got through the year with just a few 'growing pains'. We are now in 8th grade and each year has gotten easier and better for our child. She didn't want to go anywhere else, even when given the choice during that hard year. Our other children have grown and flourished in the preschool and elementary levels. As for Christian aspects, despite the fact that we are not Church of Christ, we have felt the Biblical teachings to be excellent.

CCS provides a wonderful loving Christian atmosphere for my children. The teachers are wonderful and care for their students. The curriculum is Christian influenced, and the teacher use every opportunity to bring God into the lives of the children. CCS feels like a family and my children love being there. I know that my children are being educated both academically and spiritually. The teacher communication is constant, each teacher sends home a weekly newsletter and some even have web pages. I love the weekly homework, which provides me the opportunity to plan our week. The love that our children feel when they enter their doors is undeniable. I know that our children are in the daily prayers of the CCS faculty, administration, and staff.

CCS provides an above average education, taught from a Christian perspective. It is well worth the tuition! Never will you find a more loving and caring leader than at CCS.

The very early years of education is good here, however, after the 2nd grade it lacks. The teachers are not trained or professional in their ongoings with students. I witnessed a teacher tell a 3rd grader it was 'none of her business' when the 3rd grader asked where she went for lunch. There is much nepotism in this school making it difficult for them to get rid of poor teachers. They have lost focus as to who the customer or client is, 'The Student'. The administration is lacking as well. When people write good things about this school most likely they attend church at CCS and are also part of the administration. Don't waste your money, programs are lacking.

I think you should strongly consider exactly what it is you want out of your child's private school education. If you're looking for an alternative to public school where you have more peace of mind about safety issues, and your interest is in academics, then CCS is a good choice. Their academics can be overwhelming and be prepared for the homework. If however, your interest is for a strong Christian school where godliness in emphasized, and the curriculum is Christian based, then you'll be disappointed. while all the teachers are Christians, there is a strong association with the Church of Christ, with many of the teachers being from that church. The doctrine/dogma of COC has a strong influence of how God is 'allowed' in the school. My sons first few years of CCS were quality years, and a good foundation to enable him to move on was laid.

Our children have been going to CCS since they were two and three years old. They are now in the secondary school and I credit their character to the atmosphere in which they have been educated. The small class size and attention they receive as well as the Christian background are all an asset to which they have grown. Academics are strong and most teachers are willing to assist students to help them achieve to their highest ability. I can't say enough of how family oriented the school is, they are our family! Most of the kids have grown up together and are all like brothers and sisters. Although the athletic program is a work in progress, all children are encouraged to participate regardless of ability.

My family has had very positive experiences at CCS. One child has graduated and our other is in High School. CCS offers extra curricular sports programs throughout the school year. Here are the sports that were offered during the 2005-06 school year. Fall: Soccer and Volleyball (both have teams for Middle School and High School). Winter: Basketball for boys and girls (again, Middle School and High School). Spring: Girls' Soccer, Running Club and Middle School Baseball. Golf was offered for the first time during the 05-06 school year.

We have had nothing but a positive experience with our two children and their enrollment into Coventry Christian School. Both the preschool and elementary department are well organized and the administrative staff is very available and visible with-in the school community. The school is very consistant in both the academic and character areas, and the students learn biblical foundations as well as how to apply them to their everyday lives. As a family coming from another school setting, we have really been blessed by the feeling of community and family at the school. The families who enroll at Coventry Christian come from a broad variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. We just enjoyed the elementary drama and elementary and high school choral productions and are really happy to have a setting where our students will be able to progress straight through their high school years through twelfth grade.

If you are looking for small classroom size, bible studies, and a strong academic curriculum than look no futher, this school has it all. The children are well-behaved and they all conduct themselves in a descent manner. This school is very family oriented. There are no drugs, violence nor smoking with any of these children. My son has attended Coventry Christian school for 4yrs now. And he loves it! I highly recommend this school to all parents. As mention by the previous parent, the only thing the school lacks is the extra-curricular activities. The school has a basket-ball team & soccer team. But it is not the best. Yes, the school is working hard in these areas of interest for the students, but again it will take time. Besides, education is the key to our kids future. And yet, I highly recommend this school for for all children of any ages:-)
