Administration

The bottom line in leadership isn’t how far we advance ourselves, but how far we advance others.  —John C Maxwell, author, speaker, pastor

You care about who teaches your children and you should. But have you considered who leads and supports them? Our administrative team – from our IT staff, to our headmaster, to operations and marketing – are carefully selected folks who love God, love children, and love classical education.
