Highland Renaissance Academy – Our CMS partner school

There are many ways to get involved with Highland Renaissance Academy, our CMS partner school located just north of uptown at 125 W. Craighead Road.

Covenant's partnership with Highland means that we lift up teachers and students by providing reading buddies, teacher appreciation brunches and more.
