Always measuring its work, policies and progress with the guidance of God’s Word and in accordance with the school’s mission to provide an environment of Christian academic excellence, the Covenant Christian School Board leads and governs CCS to ensure appropriate school performance and Biblically-based integrity in all methods and practices. Throughout its history, the Board has been characterized by dependence on prayer.


Covenant was founded in 1985 by First Presbyterian Church (PCA) of Tuscumbia, AL. It has since become independent, but six of the Board’s 11 directors also are members of First Presbyterian. Covenant’s Board is self-perpetuating, selecting new members annually in May, using a rotation method and term limits, and operating with a system of committees.
