Who We Are
Covenant Life School is passionate about preparing youth for the unique call God has on their lives. We are devoted to supporting parents in Covenant Life Church and other local churches who want to educate their children with strong Christian teachers and from a biblical worldview. For more in-depth information, visit the school website.
Covenant Life Church began an educational ministry in 1979 with roughly 40 students. Now, 31 years later, Covenant Life School is a dually accredited K-12 Christian day school with a strong academic tradition, a competitive interscholastic athletics program, and a pervasive emphasis on character development and spiritual formation. Located in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., Covenant Life School offers enrollment to families who are members of local churches.
In 1995, shortly after occupying the first phase of our current church building, a high-school program was added, and the first class of seniors graduated in June, 1998. Since then CLS has graduated more than 225 students. Graduates have enrolled in all of the leading colleges in the area and earned Covenant Life School a strong reputation for developing students for future success as leaders, learners and contributing community members. Covenant Life School continues to be a growing school distinguished by a deep level of commitment to spiritual formation and a Christ-centered classroom education.
