This is Covenant College
Providing individualized undergraduate education is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well.
Our gifted faculty are here to mentor you through the rigorous academic programs and challenges of college life. They offer so much more than lectures, assignments, and grades. They want to genuinely know you and encourage you to be the best you can be. What’s more, almost all of them hold terminal degrees from prestigious universities such as Stanford, Cal-Berkeley, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Cambridge, UNC, and Yale.
Being here matters
Part of what makes a Covenant education so powerful is our commitment to learning in close community. When you’re here, professors, support staff, and your peers take the time to know you and invest deeply in your learning experience and spiritual formation. In our tight-knit community, you will find a home where you can stretch yourself and grow.
A Christ-centered education
Covenant College is a learning community where students explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all creation and all of life.
We are unabashedly academic
A Covenant College education helps you develop:
• Critical-thinking and problem-solving skills
• Awareness of cultural diversity—understanding the world from a diverse set of perspectives
• Empathy and tools to learn about and communicate with others
At Covenant, students in every discipline dedicate a portion of their education to integrating their faith and scholarship into their senior year Capstone project, a work focused on an area, idea, or venture they are passionate about.
