Covenant College is a selective Christian Private school, which engages the intellect and the spirit, striving for excellent in academics and our Christian walk. This is an education that changes lives and inspires the desire to transform society.
At Covenant College we confess that we are managed by God. We place high priority on growing our learners in their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. Our Bible Education classes form a pivotal part of their weekly curriculum as well as Praise and Worship Assemblies is where they can freely come to the throne room of Grace to bask in the presence of the Lord and be led by the Spirit of God to be used as instruments; to encourage their fellow learners and where they themselves may receive from the Lord. It is the most rewarding thing to see our learners becoming Christ-like, Spirit-filled and maturing in their Christian Journey. Cultural Enrichment Covenant College’s arts and cultural offerings allow and enable our students to express their God-given talents in a creative and meaningful way. We strive for excellence in all cultural spheres, with a team of educators that are well-qualified to coach our students to achieve the best results possible. Cultural activities currently offered at Covenant College include: Participation in various One-act play Festivals, where our students obtain various accolades. Participation in the Speech and Drama College’s Public Speaking Festival. Participation in the Alberton Eisteddfod, where our students have a longstanding history of achieving high standards in acting, art and singing. Latin American and Ballroom dancing classes. Covenant College produces a School Revue talent show or fashion show that all of our students participate in. This is a wonderful time for students to show off their God-given talents; it is also a great opportunity to build school spirit and camaraderie. As a school, we strive to cater for learners’ needs, and as such, we are continually adding on to and developing our art and cultural events/shows. ACADEMIC TUITION Classroom environments are tailored to include the CAPS curriculum and to meet the academic needs of the learners over and above that of CAPS. Examinations, term tests, class tests and continuous class assessments form the bases for formative and summative learning to occur. Learners also participate in Olympiads; Conquesta; IEB tests (CORE testing and MATCH testing) etc. These have all proven an invaluable source of highlighting the excellent value of Covenant’s learners academic standards. Covenant College consists of the Primary School and High school. The primary school is broken down into the Foundation Phase (Grade R to Grade 3), Intersen Phase (Grade 4 to Grade 6) and the Senior Phase (Grade 7). The three HOD’s, Mrs A. Etherington, Mrs H. Ross and Mrs G. Peterson work very closely with the teachers to ensure that the standard of academic and discipline excellence is maintained and improved upon through a holistic and Christian-like approach. The High school is broken down into GET phase (grade 8 & 9) and FET phase (grade 10-12) with Mrs Ford and Mrs Jordaan as respective HOD’s. The opportunities to excel in academics is afforded to all and an ethos of “Working in excellence” runs deep in both staff and learners alike. Sports Development soccer boys winSport at Covenant College has changed quite drastically over the past thirty years. As a “small private school” we first became associated with SACSSA (South African Christian Schools Sport Association), where we partook in various sports such as Soccer, Netball, Volleyball, Table Tennis and Athletics and Cross Country. Sport was compulsory for every learner as sport periods were part of the school curriculum and timetable. In 2014 we wanted our learners to experience a more “competitive” side of all sports and decided to withdraw from SACSSA and then became associated with the Public Schools’ League (GDE League) and fell under the Southern Suburbs Cluster in 2015. During 2015 we discovered that a lot of the smaller private schools in the area were also looking to join a league and we therefore formed a friendly “private” league with a few public schools in the area and started to take on newer sports such as Touch Rugby and Girls’ soccer. Due to many schools not participating and withdrawing from matches at such short notice we decided to then form part of the Alberton Cluster League in 2016.
