Ethos

The ethos of Covenant Christian School is critically important. Ethos has been defined as “the essence or ‘feel’ of the school as a community of faith and learning.”

The ethos of Covenant Christian School is founded on an understanding and application of grace. As former Covenant Presbyterian Church Pastor George Robertson once said, at Covenant Christian School:

“We want every teacher, every administrator, every helper, and every board member to be in love with Jesus Christ to the point… that everyone who walks our halls will know this is a different place. We will not be characterized by rules, or strictness, or rigidity. We will be characterized by the grace of God realized through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which is compassionate toward those who are but dust.”

The application of grace is what we value in our relationships with one another. In particular, we seek to have a community where forgiveness, humility, patience and Christ-like love are exhibited. We have worked hard to understand and apply grace in our school and our happy students are a partial reflection of a good ethos.
