Principal’s Message

Dear Summit families,
It is with great joy and excitement that I write this letter to you as the Principal of Summit Charter Academy (SCA). I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich educational tradition.

I have been dedicated to the field of education for the last twenty years. During that time, I have taught grades 2nd through 7th, and previously, I had the opportunity to be Assistant Principal at University Charter School. This will be my fourth year as the Principal at SCA. I am proud of everything we were able to accomplish together and look forward to continuing our partnership. I am excited and eager to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.

On a personal note, I am married to my wonderful wife Britney, and have two lovely children; Sophie, age 13, and Ryder, age 5. Outside of education, some of my favorite things to do are
bowling, golfing, darts, reading, and spending time with friends and family.

I look forward to getting to know all of you. It is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors -students, families, and staff are excited to be here and feel welcome! My hope is that this mindset enables us to meet the challenges of academic success in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Summit Charter Academy meet their goals and have a successful school year!
