Classical, Christian Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue through the study of the Scriptures, the liberal arts and the humanities.

Understanding Classical Education

New Covenant Schools is an educational community founded in 1991 in the classical, Christian tradition. Unique in its approach among schools in Central Virginia, New Covenant serves about 450 students in grades PK-12 with the finest classical, Christian program of study in the region. The school is fully accredited with the VAIS, and is affiliated with the Reformed Episcopal Church, serving students from more than 60 churches and a variety of denominations. Our campus is located on 50 acres at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Wesley Price

Class of 2014 | Christopher Newport University, 2018

B.A. in Communication Studies

Product Manager at Public Relay

“New Covenant’s unique approach to writing and research built a strong foundation that supported me through college and has allowed me to excel in my career as a Product Manager creating solutions to complex problems.”

Perry Mundy

Class of 1998 | Liberty University, 2003 

B.S. in Exercise Science

Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant & Certified Pedorthist at Select Rehabilitation, Virginia Sport and Spine, and Locomotion Orthotics LLC

New Covenant Schools gave me the opportunity to be a big fish in a small pond; the smaller class sizes and teacher to student ratio allowed me to grow as an individual rather than be a number. This has translated directly into my current field of work where I am a leader in pedorthic intervention around the greater Lynchburg area.

Claudia Darden

Class of 2015 | James Madison University, 2019 | George Washington University, 2021

B.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders       

M.A. in Speech and Language Pathology

“At New Covenant, my teachers encouraged me to share ideas and held my thoughts with respect. Being treated as a peer in conversation with adults who I looked up to has shaped a confidence in my own thinking. This has had a positive impact on every aspect of my life after graduating.”
