Covenant Academy admits students of any race to all rights, privileges, programs, and
activities generally made available to all students. Covenant Academy practices a
Biblical philosophy of admissions, not discriminating on the basis of race, sex, color, or
national origin in the administration of its policies, admissions, athletic, and other
Covenant Academy is, in essence, an expression of the commitment of a body of
parents to provide the best possible training and instruction for their children. We
endeavor to instill in each student a love for truth, wisdom, discernment and learning
through the use of excellent materials, in an orderly setting, founded on a growing
personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. As a covenantal school, we require that
at least one parent or guardian of each applicant give a credible profession of faith in
Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and be a member of a Christian church, which
acknowledges the Bible as the inerrant and infallible Word of God. Students seeking
admission are evaluated on the basis of their report cards, references, admission tests,
interviews, and potential to perform satisfactorily at Covenant Academy. We are not
equipped with the resources required to serve children who are seeking to be admitted
into special educational programs (see Learning Disability Guidelines). Students who
seek admission directly following suspension, expulsion, or behavior problems from
another school will not be accepted until they prove themselves elsewhere. Students
with less than a “C” average in their primary academic subjects may have difficulty in
attaining a satisfactory level of academic achievement at CA. The first quarter is
considered a trial period for all new students.
- The administration may either refrain from enrolling or retain students at its discretion.
- The child should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school. Therefore, he is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teachers and headmaster in their prescribed roles at CA.
1. New applications are accepted continually. Registration is open first to returning students and their siblings, then to the public.
2. A $40.00 non-refundable application fee must accompany all student applications.
3. Screening/testing of new students may be scheduled as needed.
Application For Admission
The application process for new students is defined fully on the Application for
Admission. Please refer to it for guidelines and procedures. In short, the
application procedure requires the following:
- Completed Application for Admission
- Application fee of $40 (All fees are non-refundable)
- Copies of standardized test scores and report cards from the past two years
- Pastor’s reference for students in 5th grade and above
- Birth certificate (all students)
- Copy of current immunization record (details follow)
- Signed Parental Contract (back page of Application for Admission)
- Student screening/testing (scheduled with school office)
- Parent/family interview (scheduled with school office)
4. When a new student is accepted, a non-refundable matriculation fee will be due.
5. Admission is not considered final until the following items are received:
- Matriculation paid in full or a completed automatic bank draft form
- Records from child’s previous school
- Health form completed by child’s physician (including updated immunization records as described below)
- Emergency medical contact form
6. The Director of Admissions in consultation with the headmaster will determine final acceptance and grade level placement of students.
After the Interview
After the interview, and after reviewing all other required materials (as stated on the
application form), the Director of Admissions will make the decision whether or not
to admit the student(s). The administration of Covenant Academy’s grammar
school entrance tests will likely be necessary for a better evaluation for grade
placement of younger student(s). Parents will be notified in writing of the decision
Enrollment, and therefore the parents’ financial obligation, is contracted to be for the full
school year. If a family is required to move more than sixty (60) miles from the school’s
location and has prepaid, a partial refund in tuition may be warranted. Any request for
the refund of tuition should be made, by letter, to the school office. (For more
information on refunds see Fees and Tuition Payment Policies.)
It is understood that parents agree to support the policies of the school. If enrollment for
a particular grade is full, a waiting list will be established for that grade.
At the discretion of the headmaster in conjunction with the appropriate principal, a
student may be refused reenrollment for the following school year. Such refusal is not
considered a direct disciplinary act, requiring accumulated office visits in order to be
taken. Refusal to reenroll is not the equivalent of suspension or expulsion.
Current Immunization Record - All students attending Covenant Academy must have
on record with the school office either a current immunization record or an exemption
statement according to GA code before entering school
Emergency Medical Contact Form - In order to dispense non-prescription medicine
(e.g., Tylenol, Tums, etc.), a signed form granting a year's permission to the school
must be on file in the school office. Grammar school parents will be called before any
medication is dispensed.
