Covenant Day to join CISAA conference next fall

Covenant Day, a private school in Matthews, will join the Charlotte Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) beginning in the 2014-15 academic year. The CISAA currently includes Charlotte Christian, Charlotte Latin, Concord Cannon, Country Day and Providence Day.

“We look forward to competing in such an excellent athletic conference with strong member schools,” Covenant Day athletics director Mark Jones said.

Covenant Day opened in 1989 and has more than 800 students in kindergarden through 12th grade.

I am interested to see how else the CISAA may expand. Something tells me that the next school to be added will be Davidson Day. In the meantime, however, I am curious to see how Covenant Day's athletics hold up against those of the current CISAA members.

Good for you Covenant Day. This school is one of the best in Mecklenburg county academically. Glad to hear they may be expanding athletics too. Great staff and students, hope to see growth.

Covenant day will take over that conference they should be getting more public attention for the work their basketball team has done this season

If Covenant Day is able to do with athletics what they have done with their academics, in years to come they will be a force in the conference. Good luck.

Well, at least now they can't hide from tougher teams. Their reputation for only scheduling easy teams outside of the conference is well known among other private schools.

Not sure what the basketball team comment refers to. The team is 4-5 with a win over Country Day, who probably won't win a CISAA game all year.
Covenant Day is a good school but will be the whipping boy of the CISAA for years to come, much like Charlotte Christian was in the 1980's. Until they can increase their HS student body size they will be sorely undermanned in most sports. They will occasionally compete at the top of the conference in one sport in one year, but that success will be few and far between until their HS gets larger. Unfortunately they are maxed out at the current HS building so it will take a capital campaign and a number of years for the student body to get much larger.
