I came to CCA seven years ago, not knowing many other students and worried about what type of academic challenges I would face. As I am anticipating graduation in a few weeks and reflecting about my time at Covenant, I am overjoyed with the experience that I have had. I am not only able to say without hesitation that I have received an outstanding education and that I feel prepared for college, but that I am graduating with life long friends. The experiences that CCA offers through teacher-student relationships and extracurricular activities in both athletics and fine arts, alongside an incredible college preparatory education, is something that I will forever be grateful for. Covenant has challenged me to think deeply, study diligently, and speak eloquently. From the challenges that occur in roundtables, to the theological discussions in Bible class, along with the fun activities in community on Fridays, Covenant Christian Academy is not simply a place of education, but a place for personal growth. I am graduating from CCA knowing full well that I am equipped with the proper tools to excel in this ever changing world around us.
