Laurie Thigpen | Covenant Classical School

My journey at CCS began 13 years ago when I began searching for a place to enroll my own three children.  At CCS, I found a place where my children would be loved, nurtured, challenged, and instructed within a Biblical worldview.

I was honored to join the faculty as a fourth-grade teacher and, later, to teach in other grammar, logic and rhetoric grades. I am honored to now serve as Head of School in a place which has played such an integral role in the education and training of my children. 

I am committed to continuing the vision of our founders to provide a well-rounded, classical, Christian education while always giving praise to the One who makes it all possible and to whom all glory is due, Jesus Christ.

Dawn Russell | Covenant Classical School

As I was talking with my sons on the way home from school, my younger son exclaimed, “I'm so glad we found Covenant Classical!” 

As a parent and a former teacher here, I can say the same thing. I am so grateful my children and I can come to a school that academically challenges students and teaches them to be life-long learners. More importantly teachers engage their students and help them define their faith in Christ through their studies and conversations. Other rich blessings are the relationships with peers, teachers, and other families that are nurtured in and out of school.

In a culture that is changing rapidly to an apathetic attitude toward the Truth, our children at CCS are being equipped to understand God's world and Word, know Him better, and defend their faith in an absolute yet loving way toward others.

I echo my son's statement that I am so happy we found Covenant Classical and honored to serve this school.
