Any academic program’s success is built on three core pillars – curriculum, students, and teachers. At Covenant, we have carefully created one of the most engaging and rigorous academic and curricular programs available in the Boston area. Our students are carefully screened and held to a high standard. The third pillar– teachers– is our highest priority and our most treasured asset. Our faculty and staff at Covenant share a vision of excellent education that forms a strong commitment to students and to their success. When hiring faculty at Covenant, we look beyond a teaching credential. Our first priority is to find teachers of strong Christian faith who love learning themselves, and who, in turn, inspire students to learn. In addition to these important qualities, we seek teachers capable of teaching in the classical Christian model.

 

Covenant is privileged to employ an outstanding group of individuals to teach and support our students. Over 65% of our faculty hold advanced degrees (or are actively pursuing one), and many have taught at the college level.
