The educational philosophy of Covenant Christian Academy is
based on the Holy Bible, which presents God as the center of
life. He created and sustains all things through His Son, Jesus
Christ (Colossians 1:16-17). The universe and all life are
dynamically related to God and have the purpose of glorifying
Him (Psalm 19:1,2; Romans 1:19,20). Man was made in God's image
(Gen. 1:26-27), different from all creation, with the unique
capacity to know and respond to God personally and voluntarily.
Because man is a sinner by Adam's nature, he cannot know or
honor God in his condition (Psalms 51:4-6, Romans 3:23). The way
to true life is through faith in Jesus Christ. The "born again"
experience is the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives (John
3:3, Acts 4:12).
Covenant Christian Academy has been established to provide a sound education of high academic standards, integrated with the truth of the Holy Scriptures, and to assist parents in applying scriptural direction. (Deuteronomy 6: 6-7; Ephesians 6:4)
We believe that true education must meet the needs of the whole child in his spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and social life. We realize that an important difference exists between the Christian and non-Christian viewpoints on a given subject. Although the knowledge is similar, no subject can be taught in the totality of its truth if the Creator, Christ, is ignored or denied.
The goal of our educational process is to instill in our students a system of values consistent with the Bible, and to educate youth in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship.
Attendance at Covenant Christian Academy is a privilege, not a right. Parents and students are expected to be fully supportive of the philosophy of our school.

A Beka has produced all the basics of a solid education in beautiful, full-color books and workbooks. Phonics is the cornerstone of kindergarten and the other grades build on these principles.
History and Science are taught from a Biblical perspective. History asserts patriotism and endorses the hand of God throughout time. Science teaches observation and substantiation of proven theories. It reinforces creationism.
