|“Education is the kindling of a flame.” - Socrates|
In September 1975, the Alternative College Preparatory Program began at Covedale School. Hailed a success by parents, students, and administrators, this program serves as a blueprint for similar alternative schools throughout the city. Each year, the curriculum at Covedale has become more innovative to better meet the needs of the students. The present program of excellence was developed because of the dedication and creativity of the well-educated and highly motivated teaching staff working closely with interested and cooperative parents. In addition, on our road to excellence, the development of the total child is stressed. Covedale School has earned the coveted School Incentive Award and is recognized as an Achieving School by our district.
