Our Curriculum Map
Covenant’s curriculum begins with the end in mind, namely with the kind of person that our curriculum seeks to cultivate. We summarize this goal in our portrait of the graduate, which gives our curriculum a single organizing principle and unity in its purpose. Every class and every subject at Covenant School is oriented toward the outcomes of our profile of the graduate.
Bible and Theology
Our Biblical Studies and Theology curriculum addresses the accounts of scriptures, principles of interpretation, surveys biblical doctrine, and challenges students to apply what they have learned, culminating in a Christian worldview.
Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric
Our students work in the Trivium—the verbal arts—through reading texts (Grammar) in all disciplines and in designated Logic and Rhetoric courses. Wielding true words with skill and eloquence is the goal of the work in the verbal arts.
We invite our students to take part in the Great Conversation through a deep study of literature and history. Teachers lead students to think about ideas with which people in all places and times wrestle as we seek what is means to live a good life.
Mathematics and Science
Mathematics and Science classes awaken wonder and impart skills to see and study the orderly world of creation as beautiful evidence of God’s design, not divorcing scientific knowledge from its place in a unified cosmos. Students are encouraged to see the subjects of their studies as an integrated whole before they analytically dissect them into parts.
Art and musical education trains the heart to engage reality joyfully and with wonder. This mode of education seeks to expand students’ moral imagination as they delight in the beauty and possibilities of God’s creation.
Our students begin the study of Latin in the third grade. Latin courses instruct students through active and communicative methods that aim at making students intuitive readers of Latin texts. Latin courses culminate in reading and discussing selections from a broad range of Latin literature, such as Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Virgil’s Aeneid, St. Augustine’s Confessions, the Vulgate, and works from Cicero, Caesar, Horace, and Catullus.
