GROUNDED & GROWING
GIVING TUESDAY - NOVEMBER 29
We believe very much in the vision and we want to sow in good ground knowing that God will multiply it to accomplish so much in our school. We’re grateful to be able to partake in this year’s giving. -Ben and Celeste Klutsey, CLS Parents
Since 1979, we’ve built a school grounded in the truth of Scripture. This foundation roots us while a godly ambition drives us to grow.
Our first graduating class was 13 students. Since those pioneer years, CLS has blossomed into a well-rounded school where students pursue advanced studies in diverse disciplines. As we pursue opportunities in the field of STEM, and invest in our teachers, we ask you to join us as we grow.
Visit our Facebook Fundraiser on Giving Tuesday (Nov 29) to join the endeavor!
Giving Tuesday is a global competition of philanthropy wherein we challenge our school community to give to the cause of a strong Christian education. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now Giving Tuesday! On November 29, we invite you to collectively give. Your generous donations allows our school the opportunities to grow and flourish in the areas God is calling us. This year your giving will go toward STEM initiatives and teacher training and compensation.
This year our goal is to raise $100,000! All donations made to CLS are fully tax-deductible.
Your generous donations allows our school the opportunities to grow and flourish in the areas God is calling us toward. This year your giving will go toward initiatives in STEM and teacher training and compensation.
Tuition covers 88% of the funds necessary for us to educate your children. We work hard to reduce overhead costs, increase teachers’ salaries, and provide a competitive and growing educational program. To remain accessible to more families, we keep tuition lower than the actual cost of a student’s education, and we rely on the generosity of school families and community members to cover the gap with extra funding.

IT TAKES MORE THAN TUITION
Our goal is to offer an excellent Christian school education at a tuition rate within the reach of most families who want this for their children.
So why should you contribute to CLS, even if your family is paying tuition, or has paid tuition for an alumni in the past? Tuition alone does not cover the costs necessary to educate a child. To remain accessible to more families, we keep tuition lower than the actual cost of a student’s education, and we rely on the generosity of school families and community members to cover the gap with extra funding. Without donated support every year, it would be impossible for the school to continue making the improvements and changes that continue to take us to the next level.
“When we made the decision for our sons to attend CLS, I thought that our tuition covered the cost, and I was surprised to learn that we would be requested to participate in various fund-raising activities. Now that I understand the school finances, especially in comparison to other nearby private schools, I see the need for fundraising in addition to tuition. My family also understands the vision and mission of Covenant Life School and we are eager to help advance that mission and vision.” CLS Parent
