Our School

Cairo Covenant School is a K-12th grade international Christian school located in Cairo, Egypt. The locals affectionately call Cairo “Om ed-Dunya,” which in Arabic means “Mother of the World.”  Home to one of the oldest civilizations on earth, Egypt shelters a growing number of Third Culture Kids (TCK), the children of a thriving expatriate community.  

Third Culture Kids are children who grow up outside their parents’ home culture (Polluck & Van Reken, 2009).  At Cairo Covenant School, our dedicated faculty seeks to provide a supportive educational environment that challenges our students to impact their world for Christ.

Cairo Covenant School welcomes Christian families from many cultural and denominational backgrounds. Since 1994, the school has served families from all around the world, including countries such as Korea, South Africa, Pakistan, England, Canada, the United States, Sudan, Poland, and Egypt.  The rich cultural diversity among our families is one of our strengths, and it is readily felt around the school through the strong and consistent parental involvement in the CCS community.


Cairo Covenant School exists to provide quality international Christian education that equips Third Culture students to impact their world for Christ.

We purpose to educate students academically, culturally, and spiritually with a Christian worldview through a biblically integrated educational program which challenges them to influence their world.
