About the Tutoring Programs at Covenant
In 1990, the Church of the Covenant formed a partnership with its neighbor, John Hay High School, in the Cleveland Municipal School District. Volunteers began tutoring students at the school and at the church under the direction of the chair of John Hay's English Department. Since that time, the Saturday Tutoring Program has developed and grown.
On most Saturday mornings at the church, tutors help students in Grades 1-12 from many schools in the Cleveland area. Tutors cover a variety of subjects including math, reading, and science. Tutors also help students prepare for the Ohio proficiency tests and college entrance exams. Field trips to local cultural and educational sites have greatly enhanced Covenant's Saturday tutoring program.
On weekday afternoons, Covenant volunteers read with children at Daniel E. Morgan Elementary School. The church has formed an official partnership with the school through the Cleveland Initiative for Education. You are invited to visit Daniel E. Morgan's media center website.
Over the years, hundreds of students have received tutoring from Covenant volunteers. The tutoring programs have brought together senior citizens, adults, college students, and youth who are interested in helping Cleveland's young people learn.
