New Covenant has been the perfect learning environment for our nine-year-old son! He made friends readily and is learning so much; we are also pleased with the Christian emphasis! The faculty and staff are very professional and accommodating; they exemplify Christian ideals in their dealings with both students and parents.

My oldest daughter is in her second year at New Covenant (being 1st grade) and my youngest daughter is in K5. We love it! It is an uplifting, loving environment. The classes are small allowing for much one on one attention from the teachers. The teachers are always willing to work with parents in furthering the growth of the child. We feel blessed to be a part of a wonderful school.

My son has attended here for three years. This school is a Christian, Covenental, Classical school offering all grades from Kindergarten through 12th. The classes have small teacher/student ratios. Discipline is based on positive reinforcement, leadership is very intellegent and enthusiastic, and all subjects are taught with a Christian worldview. The atmosphere is very safe and loving. The students are learning and challenged above the public standard, however, they are not pushed or stressed beyond their individual abilities. All the teachers are very well educated and experienced. Students from various ethnicities are represented. Grammer grades offer Art, P.E., chapel, running club, basketball team, and Spanish/Latin. This school has been a blessing for us in many ways. I have no complaints, except I wish it took less time to get there.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
