ABOUT CCS | HISTORY & OVERVIEW
CCS was formed in 1982 under the original name of Conroe Bible Christian School. The name was changed to Covenant Christian School in 1983 in an effort to appeal to a broader segment of the Christian community. For the first eighteen years, the school functioned as a ministry of Conroe Bible Church and used the CBC facilities as its campus. The school has always been governed by an independent Board of Trustees, comprised of parents of students at Covenant. The student body is made up of families from Montgomery, Walker, San Jacinto, and Liberty counties. Covenant families currently represent approximately twelve denominations and more than fifty local churches.
For eighteen years the school was located at 1202 Callahan Avenue, adjacent to Conroe's largest public park (Candy Cane Park) and directly across from the Conroe Recreation Center. The students enjoyed the privilege of being able to use both facilities, including the ballparks, tennis courts, and gymnasium.
During its first year, Covenant Christian School used makeshift classrooms located in the back of the CBC sanctuary. In 1984, the school moved into a spacious new educational facility located behind the church. The church also utilized this building, referred to as the Christian Education Building or C.E. Building, for Sunday school and other church functions. In 1988, two portable buildings, Heritage Hall and Tucker Hall, were donated and moved onto the campus. In 1995, another portable building, Providence Hall, was constructed on site.
In August of 2001, Covenant relocated to a new 42,000 square foot facility north of Conroe on Interstate 45. Our thirty-five acre campus contains an education building which serves students in grades Pre-K through 12. The facility includes classrooms, a gymnasium, cafeteria and library. Next to our baseball, softball, and soccer/football fields, Covenant recently add a new field house including coaches offices, an activity room, weight room, and locker rooms for our male and female athletes. In May of 2014, construction began on a new fine arts building which now serves elementary and secondary art, music and drama students. Also included are locker rooms for elementary P.E. students along with a common area to be utilized by secondary students during study hall.
Future plans for the campus include a separate elementary building, free-standing gymnasium, tennis courts and garden area. Ultimately, Covenant's facilities will provide a comprehensive educational program for 800 students.
In January 2015 CCS opened it's new Fine Arts Building:
