I attended Covenant Kindergarten through 12th grade. I never wanted to leave to attend another school. CCS was my home away from home. It was a place of fellowship and friendship. We took pride in everything we did. I have awesome memories from my years at Covenant that I will cherish forever. I was challenged academically and still graduated with honors. If I was struggling, teachers would help me. Not because of the obligation, but they truly wanted to see their students succeed. I was told by many of my college classmates who attended public school that they had no idea college was going to be as difficult as it is. I had know idea what they were talking about because I felt and still feel that I was prepared in many different areas. As for my faith, Covenant helped grow my walk with God on a DAILY basis. A Biblical foundation was always incorporated into the curriculum, and we had Bible class each day. Sure, there are a few negatives AS WITH ANY school, church, business, family, friendship, ANYTHING because we are not perfect, ONLY God is perfect. However, to me, the positives outweigh the negatives by far!

My family and I moved to the Houston suburbs from Michigan 3 years ago and visited about 5 private schools in the area. Covenant Christian made a very positive impression on us above all the others. Our choice was clear. Our 2 teenage girls were very apprehensive about starting a new school and made it known to us, but about 4 weeks into enrolling at CCS they expressed joy and gratitude about their new school. Our 2 teenage girls have integrated very well into Covenant. This school has a very strong academic foundation as well as great Biblical teachings. Our girls are both on honor roll and are involved in various sports, Key Club (a student volunteer organization), Bible Study groups, National Honor Society and other extra curricular activities CCS has to offer. We are thrilled to see how well they have been accepted and welcomed into the Covenant family as we all now refer to the families here. We have become great friends with many of the parents of our daughters' classmates. My husband and I are thankful to God for leading us here. Having our daughters attend Covenant has been a very worthwhile investment that is already reaping many rewards for our entire family.

I have 3 children who attend(ed) Covenant. Two graduated with excellent academic educations and were accepted by each college to which they applied - scholarships were offered by most of those colleges. More importantly, they are very grounded in their faith. Our third child is thriving, and we expect the same will be true for him when he graduates. Because of the quality of teachers, coaches, and sponsors, our children have been allowed to become very involved with all that Covenant offers. Faculty and staff sincerely care about each student and want to see them succeed. When my children asked for help, teachers made themselves available before school, during lunch, at study hall, and after school. We have had numerous parties at our home for students and are always so impressed at the kids' conduct - polite, respectful, fun-loving, and they always thanked us for hosting them - quality kids! Over our lifetime, Covenant is the best investment my husband and I will ever make. The strong Christian influence has affected not only our children, but it will affect our grandchildren and their children. Covenant has been and continues to be a tremendous blessing!

Covenant Christian School was my home away from home. I attended from kindergarten all the way to graduation and couldn't ask for a better environment to spend 90% of my time in. Just like all families, not everyone agrees with one another but I felt like, no matter what differences there were, the coaches, the staff, and the teachers always encouraged and supported each student to do the right thing. I loved participating in athletics every season and even more extra curricular activities to fill up my time and stay involved. This helped me develop true friendships and fun memories I will never forget. Any day that I struggled with understanding course work, all of the teachers welcomed me with open arms to help out and never gave up, no matter how long it took. The biblical foundation that was laid for me has provided me with discipline to keep a strong head on my shoulders throughout college and will continue to do so in the next chapter of my life. I encourage all to enroll at CCS if they are looking for a great environment to surround their child with and a strong foundation that will help them carry out their faith for many years to come.

The bullying is absolutely horrible. I attended 13 years and hated every second of it. The joke was always to see which new student would drop out first. Teachers/ admin don't do a thing about it and if you have a problem, tough luck. The admin basically tell you to figure it out on your own. I witnessed an autistic kid in my class cry numerous times during lunch because of the mean things said and done to him. Cliques form in early elementary and continue into highschool as lifelong students are forced to attend by their parents. As a result, no one has a heart for Christ and parties, sexual jokes, drinking, cursing and bad music run rampant. Their is absolutely no room for new students to fit in and I have witnessed first hand multiple students leaving after only one semester. The curriculum was a joke. Not challenging at all, I can't remember ever having homework during highschool. Although we did have a Bible class, no one was intersted in what was being taught. Noone in my class (including teachers) was Christlike. Seems more like a country club than a school as only the upperclass attend. Very dissapointed with Covenant "Christian" School. Bad things go on behind closed doors

Went into 10th grade and was super excited about going to a Christian school. I was going to learn alot about God, I was going to be welcome to many sports, I would meet some new friends, I'd do well academically. I did very well academically, the school's ciriculumn is horrible, easy, and science is totally biased. Besides learning a lot about God, the kids in my class (12 total not including me, 8 of which are girls) were very rude. They do not welcome new students and completely ignored me. I also remember being told how a student before me had been bullied out of school. Most students there do very badly academically as well, the average score is probably 70 with many failing scores and low B's. I dont know how they pass. Sports are great, and while people are accepted into a team upon request, the people aren't always as accepting as the policy. I was doing basketball for the first time in my life, and everyone-including the coach-knew that. I came out the gym in tears.Look, just dont make the same mistake I did, especially if you have a child who is looking for friends and a place to fit in this place is definitely NOT the place. Be careful when checking out any school.

We drew a bad card on teachers at the public elementary school. I knew my daughter was a little spoiled but not special ed like the public school teacher told me late in the fall 2013. I quickly started doing more hours of homework with her, bought my own books form the teacher's store (I had a hard time figuring out what were the assignments going to be at the public school, they just would send 1 sheet at a time and give me a website that never worked). I knew I had to make a move. I interviewed several private schools & Covenant effectively communicated what exactly she needed to be studying. I did lot of homework even still but it was not just me alone anymore. The teacher taught her way more than I did. When you hear your child say something learned at school with enthusiasm, you know good things are happening. When we got the results on the Terra Nova test at the end of 1 semester with Covenant. Our child was at the top in the national standings and even higher on math and science. There is a lot of bible and prayer but it does not interfere with the core academics. In fact (as it proved in my childs case) it improves academics substantially.

I'm very sorry but the vast majority of people associated with this school are not living for Jesus Christ. My child graduated with a broken heart. Most kids only attend for the sports program. This school is probably 95% upper middle class, Caucasian, Baptist kids with many only attending due to parents' pressure to keep away from public education. This is the real truth. Many leaders and teachers favor their own children and the cliques are absolutely real and devastating to new students. I question the motive of the hearts associated with this school. Our family loves The Lord and we were left feeling very alone and hurt. We have moved on but I had to share the truth. You've been warned. There's a reason why the school has barely grown in the last decade or so. New buildings are the last thing they need. They all need to examine their hearts and motives. Please pray for CCS. Pray for God's help.

When we first toured the school 3 years ago, we were instantly drawn to the professional, yet relaxed atmosphere. We've been so grateful to have our boys learning about the world that God made, from teachers who genuinely love them and desire for them to excel. I feel like the core is solid and the foundation is Christ, and we have been very pleased with the healthy balance between academics, athletics, social development, and spiritual emphasis. This school is definitely the real deal!

Covenant Christian School was very disappointing, We spent one year there and that was one year too many. There was not one positive moment there. The teachers were the worst we have ever had and the adminstration turned a blind eye. Think twice before enrolling there. We pray that no family will have to endure the year we had.

Covenant is an excellent school with many qualified, loving teachers. Small class size allows for personal attention from the teachers. The Love and concern they show their students is one of the best things about this school. Many technology advances have been made recently and the students have many opportunities for sports, music, art, and several ministry activities. Not only am I a staff member, I have had 2 children attend Covenant from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade. Both have benefited greatly from their years here. I would highly recommend CCS to anyone!

Covenant Christian School has everything our family needs. Wonderful teachers, staff, parents and students. Sports are a big part of the school and something we love. The onsite tutoring is important to us also. Parent involvement is awesome. This is our second year, and we couldn't be happier.

I am totally impressed with and love this school! I am a teacher who left public education and moved my children in order to get a challenging education in an environment with like- minded Christian teachers. The results for my children have been wonderful and the quality exceeds my expectations. There are athletic opportunities , artistic opportunities and a Biblical knowledge that will stay with them for life. I can't say enough good things about the teachers , staff and fellow students !

The school seriously needs to update their curriculum. My daughter would come home with hand cramps from the amount of busy work. The leadership at the school is extremely weak. If you have any issues arise, there is no recourse. I was told to resolve it with the teacher. The school appears to care more about sports than academics. This is obvious by the new sports complex.

The academics and sports at this school are great, can't deny that. Most of the teachers were pretty decent but some were iffy. The reason this school is getting a low rating by me is because of the students, and lack of discipline. I was bullied endlessly the two years I went there, not one thing done about it. The kids I had to deal with were most certainly NOT Christ-like by any means. A real shame.

We couldn't be more happy with the spiritual and academic opportunities that CCS offers. Our oldest child graduated after several years at Covenant and he was well prepared to enter both college and the "real" world. We know several graduates that have been accepted into prestigious colleges and into honors programs. Every year, it seems like the majority of graduates earn some level of academic scholarship for their college education. Sports and other extracurricular activities are pursued with excellence but kept in proper perspective. Some highlights for our kids have been performing in a play at the Creighton Theater, singing in Carnegie Hall with the chorus. Tuition is in line with (or less than) other private schools that have an independent campus and a full complement of programs. There are less expensive private schools in and around Conroe but CCS provides the best value in my opinion. A new administrator was hired in 2009 and he brought a fresh perspective to a place that was already performing to our expectations. The teachers are caring, dedicated and capable. The parental involvement is high; the place is like an extension of our family.

What an awesome place! Our daughter has been to 3 other Christian schools in 11 years and it's been a rough ride. Two of those schools closed down due to somewhat 'ungodly' circumstances and the other was just a mess. The teachers and leaders at CCS truly do care for the student! They are constantly in prayer and believe me, this is rare! Sure, the tuition is up there but I believe it's worth every penny. You get what you pay for. Yes, there are a few cliques among the students but this is the real world. The new headmaster is a gem. A godly man who truly does invest his heart and soul into the Christian education of our kids. So glad he is here. The whole atmosphere of the place changed for the better under his leadership. We couldn't be happier with CCS! May God continue to bless her!

While the tuition may be rather expensive, and the administration is overbearing at some times, this school has been such a joy. The teachers are extremely helpful, not just in academics, but in your faith. The environment is amazing and that overshadows most of the 'downsides' that I see. I have made lasting friendships with many of the other students that couldn't have been made anywhere else.

This school is just way too expensive. We tried to work with the administration to suggest ways to keep the quality high yet possibly save parents some money but got no where. Example: School Uniforms cost way too much (and this is a real shame as the quality was no better than what we could have bought for half price at local discount stores) and the tuition is way too high. The lunch time meals are barely worth buying, we had to mostly pack a sack lunches. Forcing boys to dress for PE in the bathroom was bad. Like most Christian schools the teachers are great and very caring but the administration is patronizing and doesn't seem focused on the chilren, only the bottom line. I regret we were unable to continue at CCS as our child had made great friends and was truly blessed with some

CCS is a great environment. My kids love it and are happy to go to school each day. The tuition is a large part of my budget but money well spent. Buy a smaller house, get an older car or a part time job. Having my kids in a safe, loving place with excellent academics, great sports programs, and a Christ-centered atmosphere is worth the sacrifice.

Academic programs are well attended to. Sports is certainly king at this institution as it is at most. I was especially disappointed that they would promote school events on Sundays considering the fact that our family is committed to church involvement and this school claims to be also. Any school committed to these ideals should be sensitive to the fact that Sunday is a busy day for Christians. Athletics and other extra curricular activities are meant to enrich our lives as hobbies and past-times rather than become our lives. What happened to teaching our children balance? I must say that parental involvement is very much expected by the faculty and staff of CCS. This is a very strong quality of the school.

As parents of two students who have spent their entire school careers at Covenant Christian School (son, grade 11, daughter, grade 9), we can tell you that it has been a great blessing to our children and our family. Rarely will you find the combination of academic excellence and spiritual emphasis that is present at CCS. Give us a try. You won't want to leave!

Covenant is a wonderful Christian environment for learning. Our children are taught academics, of course, but they are also led by their teachers spiritually. All the teachers profess Christ as their Lord and Savior, and weave Christianity into their lessons every way possible. My second and fifth graders have attended Covenant since Kindergarten and they absolutely love it. No, it's not for the rich. My husband mows yards on the side just to pay the tuition. No one here makes you feel like you are 'smaller' than the next person. We are all part of the family of God.

We are in our second year at Covenant and feel that it is a great school; academically and spiritually! My son loved his 1st grade and is doing well in 2nd grade. They do teach you to live as a Christian. It is not cheap to go there, it is more expensive than some schools but less than others. I am so thankful when I drop my son off there. We truly feel he is in a great and safe place.

It's a good school but seems more like a 'christian country club' for the well-to-do to send their kids to with little emphasis placed on loving Jesus with all your heart! 1st grade terrible, 2nd wonderful from there it's a toss up. I wasn't too impressed with most of the staff so we left. They also can milk you dry for everything. And the debt service fee, well, that's more than most can handle.
