Student Groups & Clubs
Student groups and clubs are led by Covenant faculty and formed to deepen students’ educational experience.
Student Ambassadors facilitate a vibrant climate among current students and a welcoming, comfortable, positive experience for guests and new students—and in doing so, represent Covenant High School’s ideals as it strives to be a Christ-honoring community of grace.
Some annual events: Prayer Breakfast, International Dinner
National Honor Society
Students who maintain a 3.25 or above cumulative grade point average are eligible for membership in the CHS Chapter of the National Honor Society. The society exists to encourage academic excellence, develop leadership skills, and provide community service.
Some annual events: Bi-annual induction ceremonies, blood drive, Relay for Life, and other community service opportunities.
Houses & House Council
The House system draws students closer together, forming bonds across grade levels. Each student is placed in a House, delineated by gender. Houses engage in a year-round competition, earning points with every victory, in an effort to be the champion House at the end of the school year. Each House has a leader which together forms the House Council, the group that helps plan competitions and foster an enthusiastic student life.
Stoa Speech & Debate
Stoa is a national junior high and high school speech and debate league serving the needs of privately educated Christian homeschooling families. Lincoln-Douglas debate explores the intersection of policy with philosophy and seeks to understand the meaning of a just government. Students learn to master the art of winsome persuasion while enhancing their resume. In addition to bi-weekly meetings, participants are expected to compete in tournaments, which are typically 2-3 day events and occur several times a year.
All students are invited to participate in the annual spring drama production. This is an opportunity to explore a new form of art and learn about the dynamics of a live production as students are welcome to participate both on the stage and behind-the-scenes. Not only does this experience enhance public speaking abilities, but it encourages teamwork and builds community across grade levels as students prepare a production for the enjoyment of an audience and glory of the Lord. Auditions are held in the fall and rehearsals are twice a week after school. The play has two performance nights in March and nearly always a packed house.
KidREACH is a weekly after-school tutoring service to Jefferson Elementary students. Tutors are exclusively Covenant High School students who offer help primarily in reading and math homework. Participation in KidREACH is a valuable addition to resumes and college applications.
Boys Discipleship Group
The Boys Discipleship Group meets weekly and study subjects vary. This year, the focus is on biblical manhood: what the Bible says about who men should be, and how men should live. These young men also engage in relevant discussions, pray together, and enjoy snacks and fellowship.
Girls Discipleship Group
Much like the Boys Discipleship Group, the Girls Discipleship Group studies God’s Word, what it says about who we are, what we should pursue, and how we should think of ourselves and those around us. Participants pray together, discuss the challenges of living in the world as young women today, and sharpen each other as daughters of the King.
The Photography Club visits different locations to capture the beauty that is there and to grow in compositional skills. Taking place outside of school hours, this is a valuable time of fellowship as well as time spent learning a new skill.
The Covenant hiking club meets on seven Saturdays throughout the school year to hike some of Washington’s iconic peaks and lakes. Participants enjoy the beauty of nature and the joy of sharing that beauty with their classmates.
The Covenant Math Team exists to give students an opportunity to hone their math problem-solving skills outside the traditional classroom setting. Not having any required material to cover means we are free to explore a variety of fun topics in a collaborative, low-stress environment. The Math Team traditionally participates in the AMC 10 and AMC 12 math competitions in late January/early February.
