Introducing a house competition that will last until the end of the year and require nothing out of the ordinary from our students… The “Esprit de Corps” House Competition will award 100 points on the last day of school to the house displaying the highest loyalty to Covenant’s dress code standards.

As we seek to invest in each other through our words and our actions we want to support a school culture that reflects a freedom in Christ and requires a decreasing level of oversight. The house that reflects the classical, Christian and scholarly image of Covenant Academy with the least amount of reminders and oversight will win this competition.

Individual dress code discrepancies will be noted by administration and will affect the house competition. This is by far the easiest House Competition yet! Reminders will continue to be given by teachers in the classroom, as needed.
