It is with great joy, gratitude and excitement that we announce St. Paul Christian Academy's next Head of School.
Since Ken let us know in May he would be leaving, the Board of Trust has been praying that God was already at work in the heart of the person He would call to lead St. Paul. Our prayers seemed affirmed in countless ways over the summer as our Search Committee endeavored to find the right person to serve as our next Head of School. We are also very happy to say that our prayers have been answered even more quickly than we ever anticipated.
In July, the Search Committee narrowed the applicant pool to a smaller group of candidates who were brought to St. Paul for interviews. The search committee’s criteria was high: We were looking for a visionary and a strategic thinker, but also a scholar, a team builder and a fundraiser. From a personal perspective, we wanted someone who is visible, approachable, and articulate, who understands the importance of an academically rigorous, Christ-centered elementary school education, and whose own life is centered on Christ.
After many hours of interviewing, prayer and deliberation, the Search Committee made a unanimous recommendation to the Board. This week the Board voted unanimously to appoint Dr. Jason Powell to serve as the next Head of School for St. Paul Christian Academy effective July 1, 2017.
