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 Evangelical churches who want to educate their children with strong Christian teachers and from a biblical worldview.

In 1979, Covenant Life Church began an educational ministry for families. We had roughly 40 students walk through our doors that first year. Now 33 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 Evangelical churches.
In 1995, a high-school program was added and the first class of seniors graduated in June 1998. Since then CLS has graduated hundreds of students. Graduates have been accepted into the following institutions: American University, Catholic University, Corcoran School of Art & Design, Eastern University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Gettysburg College, Grove City College, Liberty University, McDaniel College, Messiah College, Montgomery College, University of Maryland--Baltimore County (UMBC), University of Maryland--College Park, US Naval Academy at Annapolis, Syracuse University, Stevenson University, University of Miami, University of Colorado, Villanova University, Washington University, Westchester University, West Point Military Academy, Wheaton College, William and Mary and others. Covenant Life School continues to be a growing school distinguished by a deep level of Christian commitment, a pervasive emphasis on character, and high academic standards.
Covenant Life School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools as well as by the Association of Christian Schools International since 1999. For more information about our accreditation, click here.
