In All Things Christ Preeminent

 

Founded in 1955, Covenant College is a Christian liberal arts college located on Lookout Mountain, Georgia.

Distinctly Christian: Our motto, "In all things, Christ preeminent," says it all: We exist to glorify and make known the name of Jesus Christ.

Liberal Arts Education: We view academics as a way to honor God - not just in biblical & theological studies, but also through the sciences, arts, humanities, and more.

Reformed Theology: We are committed to the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, and everything we do is grounded in our Reformed theology.

The Covenant Ascent

The Covenant Ascent: The Covenant experience - what we like to call The Covenant Ascent - equips students to faithfully steward their God-given abilities. Through academic excellence, spiritual formation, and professional development, the Ascent launches graduates into the world to lead fulfilling, successful, Christ-honoring lives and careers.
