Average Academic Profile

At Covenant, we are a community of like-minded believers who desire to prepare for lives of servant-leadership in any number of pathways of God's calling. To that end, we admit students who profess faith in Jesus Christ and who we think will do well in our rigorous academic program. A written personal testimony is one component of the admissions process.

 

Covenant College offers students an academically rigorous liberal arts education, equipping them to explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. Consistent with this mission, the average freshman has the following academic record from high school:

  • 3.61 un-weighted GPA
  • 1180 (math + critical reading) SAT or 25 composite ACT

While this is the average academic profile that characterizes our student body, potential applicants should keep in mind that we consider every application on an individual basis. Transfer applicants are considered in light of this academic profile, as well as academic performance in any college-level coursework. Anyone interested in a Covenant College education should apply.

“I could tell from my first visit that Covenant really lives out its motto, 'In all things Christ preeminent,' in everything from academics to athletics.”

Dr. Kelly Kapic discusses the difficulties Christian students face at secular colleges, and outlines the benefits of studying among thoughtful believers at Covenant.
