Headmaster's Office

Dear Kerr-Vance Academy Community,


I would like to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Kerr-Vance Academy.  Our mission is to prepare each student for college and a rapidly changing future.  Our students are the leaders of tomorrow.  At Kerr-Vance, we provide a personalized learning experience in a safe and nurturing environment.  We are committed to providing a challenging and rigorous curriculum taught by talented and caring teachers. 


“I can’t believe that God put us on this earth just to be ordinary.” – Lou Holtz


In this quote, Lou Holtz reminds us that we must continue to strive for excellence.  Each person has talent that can be enhanced by learning and hard work.  We must set the bar high to achieve our full potential.  At KVA, we understand that our work must be focused on just that – helping each student reach his or her full potential.  We believe that each student should be empowered academically, to serve, and to lead.  We believe that students should develop kindness, respect, and become responsible citizens.


During my career as a teacher, coach, and administrator, I have come to understand and value the social and emotional development of each child as they transition from primary to elementary, from elementary to middle school, and finally from middle to high school.  Each stage is important.  I value life-long learning and will work to make your child’s learning experience at Kerr-Vance Academy engaging and exciting.


As headmaster of Kerr-Vance Academy, I view it as my responsibility to enhance each child’s learning experience and continue to foster a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school.  Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
