Senior Story – Maddie Smith

IMG_1899I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend New Covenant School since Kindergarten. Although I do not remember when I did not know Jesus, New Covenant has allowed me to be nourished in my faith. The teachers have enriched my education by being Christ-like examples. They have shown me grace when I haven’t deserved it, allowing me to learn to show grace to others as well. My fellow classmates have also enriched my life. At New Covenant School we hold one another accountable. When one of us stumbles, there is always a friend there to pray with us, encourage us and tell us when we are not glorifying God.

The culture at New Covenant School is like a family, from reading with the younger students, to supporting one another through the school sponsored activities like basketball we all truly love one another. I am confident that I am prepared for the new challenges ahead of me because of my education at New Covenant School. I plan to attend the Dental Hygiene Program at Greenville Technical College in the fall and I feel comfortable being able to express my faith to those who may not have a relationship with Christ. I know what I believe and why I believe because of the classical and Christian education I have received at New Covenant School. My advice to other students at New Covenant is to soak up as much as you can, the classes, the activities and the fellowship with other students. I promise you will not regret it! Psalm 119:31-32 says, “I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding. I hold fast to your statutes, LORD; do not let me be put to shame. I hold fast to your statutes, Lord ; do not let me be put to shame.”
