High School Electives
Electives provide an opportunity to cultivate one’s gifts and talents. They also provide an opportunity to cultivate balance in our studies, an important component of our school vision. The word “elective” should not be confused with “unimportant.” Elective credits are required each year in high school and may be earned in several ways.
Students may choose from the elective courses of study offered at Covenant, approved courses of study at a local art or music school (at the student’s expense), or a dual credit option offered through LeTourneau University. Students who choose to take Covenant’s elective courses year after year will be provided with opportunities to build on prior skills rather than repeat the same content. Small class sizes provide a unique opportunity to customize the learning experience in these electives.
Several electives are required each year, and several have minimum requirements over the course of the high school years. Students have the opportunity to choose the elective that they feel they are best suited for as a servant leader, or can grow them most into becoming a well-rounded disciple of Christ.
