Between 40% and 50% of our students each year qualify for financial aid, some of which comes in the form of scholarship awards. Continual support of these scholarships is vital if we are to ensure that this community reflects the beauty and diversity of the Body of Christ. What greater gift to offer a young person than this Christian Liberal Arts and Sciences education? 

You can provide scholarship dollars that are allocated entirely in one school year by making a gift to the Covenant Fund. In the notes, specify either the General, Minority, or Ministry Scholarship.

Or you may donate to our Scholarship Endowment Funds (below), in which the principal is invested to create scholarship income in perpetuity. Use the links below to make a tax-deductible donation to your Endowment Fund of choice.

We are grateful for the many donors who bless the school by contributing to our financial aid program. Many Covenant students simply would not be here without this generosity.
