From our kid's very first day at Covenant Academy all the students and staff welcomed them with open arms which made the transition for each of them so much easier. Covenant Academy is turning into more than we could have hoped for and is a true testament to the leadership and Christ like examples the staff embodies!

We researched for over a year to find the right school for us. We were looking for a classical christian school with a strong community and we finally found it! This will be our second year at the school and we couldn't be more pleased. Our grammar school age daughter has thrived in the nurturing environment and comes home every day excited about all that she is learning. It's exciting to see how God and the bible are woven into every subject. We found the community of families here very easy to get to know and supportive. Our daughter was also a part of the Junior Choir and American Heritage girls....looking forward to next year!

Covenant Academy has been an amazing experience for our family. We have a child in the grammar school as well as the upper school and are so pleased with how they transition from one grade to the next. The curriculum flows from year to year and the students grow in their confidence and abilities. Watching the older students speak at chapel as well as mentor the younger children is a blessing to see. It makes me look forward to what God will do with each of my children as they go into logic school. Mrs. Collins knows and loves each of the children at Covenant. It is a joy to watch her call to each one by name every morning and to see them run up to hug her. She is always available to talk with parents and always has a smile for everyone. We are so pleased with the education that our children are receiving and truly believe it to be the best around. We wouldn't have them anywhere else.

Our grandchild attended Covenant Academy for several years. In our opinion, Covenant Academy does not provide a Christ-centered environment for classical education. The written message of Covenant talks about love, however rigid discipline seems to be the overriding culture of this school. Negativity, criticism, threats, and punishment appear to take the place of encouragement and positive instruction, in and out of the classroom. The school community, with its frequent faculty and student turn over, may indicate that it is not a thriving Christian community, but one that is in desperate need of re-direction. We would not recommend this school as our experience has been overwhelmingly negative.

My family's experience with Covenant Academy has been truly amazing. In addition to the phenomenal education, which far exceeds even the Gifted & Talented Program in public schools, Covenant Academy continually works hard to create a community that is welcome and inviting to all. My children know almost every other student in the school and I know many of the other parents, not just from my children's classes. There are volunteer events, social events, fundraising events, Fun Friday's, field trips, chapel, and many other ways that parents are encouraged to attend. We all come together, not begrudgingly, but excited to be united together to accomplish something greater than what we can do individually. Education and community alone are enough to make a good school. What puts Covenant Academy ahead of other good schools is its foundation on a loving God. My children are not just learning about God's great love for them, they are feeling it and living it. They are surrounded by it, they talk about it, they sing about it. And they learn how to reciprocate that love back to God by loving Him and loving His people, His creations, and themselves. Nothing is more important than that.

The lost tools of learning have been found at Covenant Academy. Our 2 children are challenged every day to deliver their best at Covenant and several reasons contribute; Christian foundation, loving teachers, encouraging environment, rigorous Trivium curriculum and classmates who also strive to deliver their best. Teachers require the students to think critically while adding and nurturing additional layers of moral and character bedrock. The relatively small classes ensure nuances in learning are engrained where students master a skill before moving on to the next development. Our children are not forced to wait for the others to catch up while they may not be aware how rigorously this program pushes them. The Classical education is successful in developing critical minds by utilizing high quality study materials and avoiding propaganda that have been distilled into irrelevancy. Since joining Covenant this fall our active children in 4th and 5th grade children have not been made to feel overwhelmed or unfit. Covenant has been a sound investment in our most important priorities; the children and their minds.

We feel so blessed and happy with Covenant Academy, is truly an excellent school! We were looking for better education and we found this and more. Your child will have an advance education and also they teach kids to be better persons, to have responsibilities, respect each other, caring and to be a strong person for the future. We are so happy to see that the school is growing in students and in every concept. Thank you Covenant!

At Covenant, we are seeking to connect the heart of the child to the heart of God by helping them to understand that He is all wisdom and knowledge and His Word is applicable to every subject and situation we face. We desire to instill in each child a deep sense of the joy of learning by challenging them, stretching them and growing them within the context of trusting and safe relationships. Our older students provide a tremendous amount of leadership in our school and our teachers are passionate about their calling as educators. In all things, we are about pursuing wisdom and virtue and the glory of God. Come and see for yourself!

The concern I have is their use of resources. There is a tight group that controls this school. They include the principal, many teachers and most of the parents on the board. The issue is that their children are at or entering high school age. They expend a large percentage of their budget to create a high school for perhaps 6 kids. this includes buildings, teachers and teaching materials. They intend to grow the school to encompass K -12 by adding a grade per year, which also happens to coincide with the oldest child of the principal. The plan is ambitious and they are not able to execute it without a negative impact on the primary grade levels. Over the two years our children were there we noticed the best teachers were reassigned to the high school grade levels while the K though 6 were handled with entry level teachers and parent volunteers. Interacting with these teachers could be troublesome. In the end we looked elsewhere for our children's education.Classical curriculum is excellent. This conflict of interest and resources will not be equalized and sorted out until years from now. If your plan is to educate your K-5 or even 8th grader this may not be the place.

Does not reflect God's beautiful rainbow of people in the world. In a Christian school efforts should be made to have a diverse group of God's people, God serves more than one group of people and he wants us to welcome all students from all ethnic groups.

Covenant Academy is AMAZING! From day one they have been very welcoming and every single experience has been very positive. My daughter is in love with this school and she wants to graduate here...and she is so little :) This is the place to be if you want the whole package for your kids an excellent education, parents are involved, teachers love to teach and care about your kids and best of all that your kids will grow up knowing about God's word. Many thanks!

My husband and I moved our daughter to Covenant Academy in February of 2013. After a few weeks of attending school there in the first grade, she came home saying that Covenant had changed her life. She feels safe, loved, and accepted. She is learning so much that she never had learned at her public school. Not only is she happy, but as a parent, I feel that the school communicates well with us and is in partnership with us in raising our daughter to become a Godly woman.

My daughter attends Covenant Academy. Unlike Cy-Fair schools that have just become so over-crowded, and as a result they have issues with classroom management and forget about your child as a result. Cy-Fair schools waste so much precious time preparing for the taks/star tests - that you only learn how to pass these tests - as a result your child loses precious time getting a proper education. The staff at Covenant are well educated and accountable for your childs education. They all take the time and effort to be engaged and mindful of your childs development. They do not tolerate alot of what goes on at the elem and middle schools in Cypress. The children that attend Covenant are held to a higher moral standard. And it is not as though teachers in Cy-Fair don't want the best for their students, they just don't have the support and time to do so. At Covenant it is the complete opposite. The class sizes are smaller and the staff does not tolerate the moral decline seen in schools now. If you are thinking about private school for your child - Covenant is a blessing in our local community. I am so thankful I found this school, what a relief.

Covenant Academy is an excellent school to send your children to. The teachers are well qualified and do a great job of training up the children in the way of Christ. The Head of School is doing wonderfully in bringing the school to where it needs to be. Our family has had a wonderful experience and I am so thankful for the work they are doing there.

I want people to know this is a good place.This is really a good school, now. We've been here for our 4th year now and this is the 1st year we've felt totally comfortable because before we just werent sure about the quality of the education. Every year we struggled about reenrolling. We are VERY glad we did this year. Now this new head of school has come in and shakened things up in that she has made some changes for the better. Some parents are struggling with the change. We are offended by that core family comment below. There are NO "core families" at the school - people can come and go - Christ is the core of this school and there are a lot of parents really who are praying that these families who are so negative and unwilling to embrace positive change would turn their eyes towards Jesus. If you are thinking about our school and can ignore parent drama you will love this school and you are lucky you are here now - they are serious about classical education not just making it a glorified homeschool. One of my kids is in chess club which is new and one is going to join the choir eventually. They have lots of activities and stuff going on. NOW we give 2 thumbs up.

What is wrong with hiring someone you know and call a friend if they are qualified? Isnt that called networking? School is great. Leave the negative comments please so parents like us, who also have junior high kids and have been there a while but who love the school's new direction can reply to this negative campaign. Dont understand why people who are so unhappy would stay.

This school is serious about it's future developments. Clear plans for growing into a high school beginning next year, developing athletics programs (the junior high girls' volleyball team won their first match last night!), and continuing a strong Christian classical education.

Great Christian school with purposeful direction from new Head. Been here many years under the changes, but have a completely different opinion. Yes, last year's 8th grade class=7 girls, but not only does this year's 8th grade class have 13 boys/girls, the school also has the largest junior high enrollment ever. Any parent who states the jr. high is weak must not have had a jr. high student and experienced the very rigorous learning that takes place. The info about class sizes and # of classes also seems to be inaccurate/incomplete/misleading. Both of my kids' classes are larger than last year. Sure numbers fluctuate for different reasons: moves, financial, even those unhappy with experience, but an overall drop of about 7 or 8 students in one year is not alarming in today's economy. The added sports mentioned earlier but not recognized could mean they didn't read their email or make it to that sign up table last month. Anyone looking for a school STILL committed to a quality Christian Classical Education should visit Covenant and see it for yourself. Too many inaccuracies and holes in the previous post to keep anyone from seeing what a great school this is!

What a great start to the school year! It is the second day of classes and there are many improvements to the organization and the campus. The administration, faculty and staff are continuing their dedication to the pursuit of excellence in CHRISTIAN, classical education for our children. It shows! To complement the strong curriculum, Covenant has added classes after school such as theater arts, chess, beginner band, team sports, etiquette & social dance and two choir programs to further cultivate an understanding of truth from God's word and an appreciation of goodness and beauty. Covenant is making a lasting difference in our lives.

This is our first full year at Covenant. Thus far we have been pleased. EDUCATION- obviously a priority and doing a good job of incorporating proven methods. They are consistent with the Classical Method. RELIGION- focus on God's love and emphasizes scripture memorization. ADMINISTRATION- well organized, compassionate, caring and able to stand their ground when necessary. The principal is actively involved and goes out of his way to develop a caring but authoritative relationship with the students. He is also very approachable to parents. Communication could be better. They are understaffed in the school office and it shows. Just a small bug that can easily be worked out. TEACHERS- excellent. FACILITY- this school will be moving into a new facility for the Fall Semester 2008. The new facility will have a library and new computer lab. We are very pleased with the genuine 'heart' of this school.

This is our third year at Covenant, and each year my fondness for this school grows immensely. We have wonderful, godly teachers who teach solid Biblical truth, with superior academics. My child is thriving here and feels loved, nurtured, respected, and challenged. As far as I'm concerned, this is northwest Houston's best-kept secret. The parent volunteers are amazing, and are treated with love and appreciation by the teachers and staff. This school has blessed our family beyond measure.
