SANATOGA PA – An idea inspired by a prayer breakfast discussion of educational difficulties among families living in the Rolling Hills apartment complex on Buchert Road has blossomed into a tutoring-and-sports program at Coventry Christian Schools that recently won a $20,000 grant to boost its growth.
Coventry Christian, whose campus occupies the former Lower Pottsgrove Elementary School on North Pleasant View Road, received the grant from the Pottstown Area Health and Wellness Foundation for its Project Purpose program.
It offers private tutoring on Sunday and Wednesday nights with Rolling Hills students, most of whom attend the Pottsgrove School District. It also sponsors a basketball team, the Chesmont Hills Warriors, whose players must be enrolled in the tutoring program to ensure they are what Coventry Christian Director of Advancement Mark Fisher describes as true scholar-athletes.
