Walter Sorensen, Head of School
The arc of the Alcuin student is a life-changing one.
From the time they arrive on our campus as toddlers to the time we say our tearful goodbyes at Upper School graduation, our students undergo a nearly 18-year process of intellectual, social and emotional formation that is found in only ten other schools in the world.
Our unique integration of the Montessori philosophy and the International Baccalaureate® program makes this possible. From the primary to elementary levels, our Montessori guides help students become decision makers, creative thinkers, and collaborative workers. At 6th level, our students begin a new transition with our International Baccalaureate teachers, who mold their already inquisitive minds and help them become empathetic global citizens with a lifelong passion for learning.
At Alcuin, our teachers aren’t merely experts in their fields of study, they’re experts in child development. For us, the “status quo” isn’t enough. Every child needs a unique pathway to achieve his or her potential. We believe the combination of our Montessori and International Baccalaureate® programs do just that, and when that potential is realized, we believe our students will change the world.
I invite you to come visit us and see why we are one of the premiere Montessori and International Baccalaureate schools in the world.

If you have children, you are already on an exciting adventure. You have been tasked with the most challenging responsibility known to humankind. At Covenant, we too are on an adventure. As a community of like-hearted families, we are on a journey of faith and learning together.
We believe that who children spend time at school with most shapes their thinking and beliefs, and having quality, Christian teachers who care about them and support them day to day and year after year really matters. We know the way children learn — the specific ways they are taught — actually determines how their brains are formed, how their character is shaped, and how their spiritual lives develop.
If joy-filled school days, skills for success, lifelong learning, and connections to like-hearted families with a common purpose are what you are looking for, Covenant may be the school for you. Research our Classical, Charlotte Mason-based program, come observe how we experience authentic Christian Community together, and we hope you consider including the Covenant journey in your family’s life adventure.
