Who will I become?

Comparing colleges can lead to difficult choices: Is professional development or spiritual growth more important? Should you sacrifice life-giving community for the sake of stellar academics? At Covenant College, you don't have to choose.

What is the Covenant Ascent?

Picture yourself making the Covenant Ascent, an integrated faith and learning journey that is spiritually nourishing and academically challenging, equipping students with the skills and experiences they need to lead successful lives and careers.

Covenant offers a challenging, rewarding education guided by Christian faculty from prestigious universities. With 27 majors to choose from and certificate opportunities, Covenant offers a variety of academic paths. All students complete a Capstone Project, the culmination of a rigorous and guided program of reflection, skills training, and research.

We believe true spiritual growth comes from encountering Jesus as a community. From chapel to the classroom, from residence halls to the athletic fields, students find transformative spiritual enrichment throughout their Covenant experience as faculty, staff, and peers disciple each other and grow together.

We equip students to pursue meaningful work by helping them find their callings, apply their talents, build their networks, and develop the skills to excel. By connecting students with internships and job opportunities and by coaching them through each step of the job application process, we help them use their God-given talents in areas they enjoy.

What does this look like each year?

"Whether you enter the laboratory, the classroom, the courtroom, whether you rear children or serve as an accountant, you go into your work not as a distraction from your faith but as a vital expression of it."

Dr. Kelly M. Kapic | Professor of Theological Studies
