Average Academic Profile

At Covenant, we are a community of like-minded believers who desire to prepare for lives of servant-leadership in any number of pathways of God's calling. To that end, we admit students who profess faith in Jesus Christ and who we think will do well in our rigorous academic program. A written personal testimony is one component of the admissions process.

 

Covenant College offers students an academically rigorous liberal arts education, equipping them to explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. Consistent with this mission, freshmen in the 25th to 75th percentile range have the following academic record from high school:

  • unweighted GPA: 3.44 - 3.89
  • SAT (math + evidence-based reading & writing): 1130 - 1350; or
  • ACT composite: 24 - 30; or
  • CLT composite: 76 - 94

 

While this is the average academic profile that characterizes our student body, potential applicants should keep in mind that we consider every application on an individual basis. Transfer applicants are considered in light of this academic profile, as well as academic performance in any college-level coursework. Anyone interested in a Covenant College education should apply.

“As a liberal arts institution, Covenant is instructing every part of my mind. There are quite a few core courses that are required, and balancing those courses with a major and two minors can be challenging. But all those requirements are preparing me to be an educated, thoughtful member of society who is knowledgeable on matters of faith and culture. I’m learning what it means to truly love others and give every area of my life completely to my King.”
