The history of Covenant Christian Academy begins with the formation of Chalcedon Christian School in 1982 in Dunwoody, GA as a ministry of Chalcedon Presbyterian Church. Chalcedon Christian School operated continuously in Dunwoody from 1982 until 1998. In 1998 the school moved to Post Road in Forsyth County. In 2002, the school was sold to a 501 (c) (3) Georgia non profit corporation, Covenant Christian, Inc. governed by a Board of Directors. Covenant Christian Academy was the name chosen by the corporate directors. Day to day operations are run by the Headmaster, Elementary Administrator, MS/HS Administrator, and support staff.
In August 2004, an athletic field was added to the campus. The new field is currently being utilized for physical education classes, recesses, athletic team practices and games for our Varisty boys’ and girls’ soccer teams.
In October 2005, Covenant expanded once more with the addition of our new gymnasium. In addition to a full court for both basketball and volleyball, the facility includes athletic locker rooms, and a stage with adequate space for school wide gatherings such as concerts, dramatic productions, and graduation.
God continues to bless Covenant Christian Academy with growth as approximately 225 students are currently enrolled. This represents the largest student body in the school’s 27 year history. Covenant is blessed to partner with Christian families who attend Bible-believing churches. The student body is made up of children from more than 50 churches in the metro Atlanta area.
Covenant Christian Academy is fully accredited with the Georgia Association of Christian Schools, GACS. Full accreditation by GACS is recognized by the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council (GAPSAC), the Georgia Department of Education, the Board of Regents, and the Georgia Student Finance Commission. This status means that our graduates are eligible for the Hope Scholarship.
We look forward to seeing what God has in store for the future of Covenant Christian Academy as we seek to Glorify Him!
