As a parent of a young child, you're keenly aware that elementary school encompasses the most formative years for learning, developing, and growing. Finding the right balance between engaging curriculum, character development, biblical integration, and a positive social environment can be difficult.
As a private Christian elementary school in Colleyville, Texas, Covenant Christian Academy, commits to all of the above while teaching from a biblically based, Classical curriculum. Our small 14:1 average student-teacher ratio helps students thrive. With hands-on learning experiences in and out of the classroom, students reach all levels of learning while engaging in all types of learning styles.
Like you, we know guiding students to become ready for learning and living comes with an alignment between home and school — that's why we value parent involvement and seek help for your child's growth and academic success.

What Makes Covenant Christian Academy Different
As a Christian parent, you can have confidence knowing CCA only hires teachers who model inspiring faith in a Christian community. Covenant Christian Academy is not only a Christian school in name, but we strive for excellence, truth, grace, and following in the character of Christ. We create an atmosphere where reflecting the love of Jesus in all we do is our greatest joy and honor.
Young minds are ready to absorb information through memorization and guided practice. CCA challenges and encourages your child with a rigorous, developmentally appropriate program, coupled with certified teachers who have a passionate Christian faith — they will nurture your child spiritually, academically, and socially in a traditional classroom environment.
Core subjects include:
- Social Studies/History
Your child will have ample opportunities to explore and discover new skills. Enrichment courses such as P.E, art, music, library, gardening, and STEM night provide an environment that encourages each student to grow into who God created them.
At CCA, community is important, so we include our elementary students in activities and events such as our Senior Student Mentoring program, school-wide sporting events, Convocation, and our Thanksgiving worship service. We hope your child’s school family will become an extension of your own home. Your child will be surrounded by teachers and staff members who love and care for them as they grow and prepare for their future.
As a parent, we know how important safety is for your child. At Covenant Christian Academy, we take all aspects of your child’s safety seriously — emotionally, socially, spiritually, and physically. Knowing that most of their waking hours will be with us, we take responsibility for their safety seriously. Your child’s emotional and social safety is of utmost importance to us. Teachers monitor and nurture healthy relationships, and bullying is never tolerated. At CCA, you can expect:
- All visitors are screened
- All student buildings are accessed by a key card only
- Emergency drills, led by our full-time Security Director, are practiced regularly and in coordination with city emergency response teams
- Video surveillance at every entrance and in every hallway
- A designated safety team that monitors campus activities throughout the day
- All parent volunteers are background checked
Your child’s well-being is precious to us and is worth preserving and protecting.

“We’ve had the best experience at CCA! From before the school year ever started, we were welcomed here with open arms. Our teachers have gone above and beyond to make sure my kids transitioned well to the curriculum, integrated well with other kids, and genuinely care and love my children as their own. The curriculum is extensive and challenging but my kids are thriving and happy. We feel at home at CCA.” — Marci Bruner, Parent of Elementary Student

“I’m passionate about my job because God has called me to do it, so I give it all I’ve got for His glory. Christian Education is a great responsibility. It has a higher purpose than just helping students gain knowledge — it’s feeding their souls and helping students learn through a biblical worldview, thereby preparing them for God’s great calling on their lives.”
