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.

"God is not exalted by lessening your loves. The Christian path is not loving less, it's loving more and rightly...Our goal is not to love less but more."

“As someone who wants to go into foreign services, Covenant has not only given me a considerable amount of connections through professors and the college’s resources, but has also taught me how to apply a Christian worldview to my fields of study which are, more often than not, part of a secular lifestyle.”
