Teaching...

…not just what to know, but how to think.
…not just how to take a test, but how to learn.
…not just how to feel, but what to love.
…not just how to make a living, but how to live.

Classical, Christian Education is the cultivation of wisdom and virtue through the study

of the Scriptures, the liberal arts and the humanities.

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.
