We are off and running into this second semester of the school year. As usual, the month of January is full of activities and events involving all realms of our school program (Fine Arts, athletics, re-enrollment, etc), and before we know it, we will be into the month of February.
We have seen the Lord bless SCA this school year in so many ways, and one of the most significant ways is in the area of enrollment. Many of you are aware that this year we enrolled over 750 students – the most in the 39-year history of our school. This growth has created an even greater sense of urgency for our school leadership to be thinking about the future of SCA, and what plans and structures need to be implemented in order to prepare this ministry for its greatest years to come. In October of this year, the Lord clearly and firmly confirmed to me that it was time for a new season for our organization, specifically as it relates to my title and position as Head of School. I have been privileged to serve in this capacity since 2002, and I praise the Lord for His strength, favor, and faithfulness to me, my family, and SCA during this time. In preparing and planning for the next chapter at SCA, I am announcing that my title and position for next school year will be changing, and we will begin a search for a new Head of School. The new Head of School will join our current administrative team in taking over the day-to-day operations in running and leading SCA, and I will be transitioning to a role that allows me to serve in a global capacity for the ministry. I will continue to be a part of the ministry as a whole and involved in assisting our new Head of School in his/her transition.
In closing, I want to say how excited I am about the future of SCA. I am asking that you join us in faithfully praying that God will bless as we begin our search and that He will send us the exact person we need to be our next Head of School. As a part of our school family, we invite you to share your thoughts about SCA here, and want you to know that we will be providing periodic updates on the progress of our search to our school family. We look forward to seeing what God has in store for SCA.
