Our challenging curriculum guides students to achieve their God-given potential and prepares them for a life of leadership and service to their communities and to the Lord.

Through the Grades

New Covenant Christian School is a K4 to 12th grade school dedicated to transforming our community through deeper relationships: students and families, church communities, local community, and world community.

K4

Our full-time and part-time K4 program provides the rich soil of a loving, caring and encouraging environment for students to flourish academically, spiritually and socially…blooming into Kindergarten-ready students.

Using a Letter-of-the-Week theme with related Bible memory verses and an experience-rich environment, the K4 program seeks to educate the whole child. Regular routines of play and exercise, small and whole group activities, and individual goals promote academic and social development. Supplemental field trips are scheduled to reinforce and enhance learning.

Educational instruction includes areas of letter identification and phonics, letter formation and Kid Writing, colors and shapes, numbers and counting, mathematical concepts and hands-on science, art and music, and more. Regular feedback of student progress is provided, and ongoing communication between home and school is valued and cultivated.

K4 at New Covenant is where little learners are nurtured to grow into students that follow Jesus and serve others in and through the kingdom of God.
