Elementary School Principal

It is with great pride and excitement that I greet you as the new Head of Schools at Calvary Christian Academy. I am honored to lead a school with such a rich tradition of Christian spiritual strength, academic excellence and servant leadership. Calvary Christian Academy has enjoyed tremendous success and the results have not materialized by accident. It has been through the hard work, dedication, and partnerships that have existed between school staff, parents, church, and the most important stakeholders in the equation, the student body. I am humbled and most appreciative of the opportunity presented to me to become a member of this educational family.

As I enter into the Calvary Christian Academy family, I would love to introduce myself. I have been a part of the Calvary Chapel family for over 22 years. I was hired under Pastor Chuck at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. And, now, I am excited to continue serving the needs of children under the leadership of the new Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel San Diego Phil Metzger!  I have been privileged to be a Christian educator who has experience working with students from the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels. My resume holds administrative experience such as Superintendent, High School Principal, and PreK-8th-grade principal, along with teaching experience at both the high school and collegiate level. My educational years have been filled with relationships that have helped me become the life-long learner that God has called us to be. I have worked with some of the best educational trainers in the world, completed curriculum cycles, worked with budgets, served on WASC visiting teams, and learned that in every day there is a lesson to be learned a lesson to make us better and more equipped for the journeys that lie ahead.

As the leader of Calvary Christian Academy, I enthusiastically embrace the task to ensure that students are prepared with the necessary tools to be productive citizens as they write the next chapters of their spiritual and educational lives moving toward high school, postsecondary education, and/or the workforce.  My intention is to continue with Calvary Christian Academy's outstanding reputation for educational excellence. I realize the spiritual, rigorous, and relevant instruction that meets the needs of each student will be the vehicle to continuing the success that has been experienced. A team approach most definitely is necessary to create and maintain that desired learning environment, and I look forward to the exchange of ideas as we all work in harmony for many years to come. And, I am honored to continue the priority of Simply Jesus in our future generations.

As we journey together, know that it is my goal to support the fabulous teaching staff at Calvary Chapel Academy and help our students build critical thinking in their areas of study, support creativity as we invest and pursue God's creation, and to learn to comprehend the facts needed to become the life-long learners, dreamers, thinkers and the most important, Christian believers of tomorrow.
