Covenant College

The motto of Covenant College is "In all things Christ preeminent". Acknowledging Christ as the creator of all things, as the redeemer of people fallen into sin, and as the sovereign ruler over all of life, the college strives to discern and to unfold the implications of His pre-eminence in all things. We seek to appropriate the mind of Christ as the biblical perspective from which we characterize and respond to reality. We are committed to excellence in academic inquiry, and we seek to define all areas of the colleges structure and program according to this understanding of our purpose.
