  • Before and After School Care (BASC) Program

    Covenant Academy is now pleased to offer a Before and After School Care (BASC) Program for any currently enrolled student in grades Pre-K through Six (6).

    We use the Pre-K classroom (closest to the office) as the home of our BASC program.  Students will be given time to play, rest, snack, work on homework and prepare for a successful school day both before and after school.  Food and/or snacks are not included but are provided at an additional cost.  You can expect the same care and attention in BASC as you would in any Covenant classroom.  

    This program is staffed by Covenant faculty and opens each morning at 6:30 a.m. After school, you may pick up your student as late as 6:30 p.m.  All Covenant faculty are CPR certified and are trained in school safety protocol.

    Before and After School Care is available on an as needed basis at your convenience.  If you arrive late to school at the end of a regularly scheduled school day, there is no need to call the school office. In partnership with you, your student will be taken care of as part of the BASC program until you arrive.*

    The base fees (found here) will be billed to your FACTS account each month following the dates of use. This schedule will be prorated for months where the school is closed for holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break.

    *Note: There will be a small daily fee of $10 for each student dropped off prior to 7:45 a.m. on any given morning, $15 for each student who is picked up by 5:30 p.m. and $20 for each student who stays until 6:30 p.m. if you are not utilizing a monthly billing schedule.

  • 2017 SCL Conference Speaker

    Leslie Collins, Head of School at Covenant Academy in Cypress, TX has received an invitation to speak at the 2017 Society for Classical Learning Annual Conference. Her session, entitled "Tuning Hearts to Learn” will be presented this June in Dallas, Texas. This year’s conference theme is “The Good Life” and will be attended by hundreds of classical educators from across the nation.

    Congratulations to Leslie Collins and all of Covenant Academy for being represented among the leaders in Classical Christian Education.

    The Society for Classical Learning (SCL) has existed since the mid-1990s to facilitate and encourage thinking and discussion among professionals associated with Christ-centered education in the liberal arts tradition. The Society provides a forum in which educators can share wisdom, experience, and ideas as they deepen their understanding of classical theory into every day, real world education.

  • New GaGa Pit

    Covenant Academy has a new GaGa pit, thanks to 9th grade student Hayden Hutchison, 

    Hayden, a Boy Scout currently at the rank of Life Scout, was working on his Eagle Service Project to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout. He chose to bless the school by building a GaGa Ball Pit.

    "The Eagle Service Project is to be done for the benefit of the community and I wanted my project to be personal which is why I approached my school for any potential needs." explained Hayden.

    On December 17, students, parents, staff and fellow Boy Scout members came together to finish the project. The pit itself has six three-foot walls in a hexagon shape, all mounted on a 20'x20" wooden deck. The deck is even set on concrete footings to allow for continued play during the rainy season.

    To fund the project, Hayden started a crowd sharing page on YOUCaring. All funds donated went towards materials, supplies, and activities associated with the Eagle Service Project.
    Although the project is physically complete, the funding goal has not yet been met. Thankfully, a gracious supporter agreed to front Hayden the remaining funds so that the project could be completed before the holidays.

    If you would like to help bring this project to full completion, your donation will joyfully be received via Hayden’s Eagle Scout Project page on YOUCaring.

    "Covenant Academy has been wanting a GaGa pit for several years and Hayden's offer came at just the right time", explained, Head of School, Leslie Collins. "We couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome and are thankful for Hayden choosing to bless the school in this way."

    Fun Facts about GaGa Ball

    GaGa ball is an Israeli sport that is quickly growing in popularity in America. The word "Ga" means "hit" or "touch" in Hebrew. So the phrase "Ga Ga" means "Hit Hit" in Hebrew. It is similar to dodgeball inside of a fence, where players cannot be hit below the waist with the ball, or they're out. Players smack the ball to try to hit each other’s' legs until only one person is left
