Christian Heritage names new Head of School

Christian Heritage School has a new leader at the helm. Kent Harrison of Johns Creek, has been named Head of School, effective March 5, 2018.

Harrison, a native of Rome, brings to Christian Heritage an impressive professional background that encompasses teaching, admissions, athletic and administrative experience. He is a strong leader who focuses on growth in four key areas: Spiritual, Academic, Extracurricular and Social. These key areas align perfectly with the four pillars that make up Christian Heritage School.

Harrison was most recently Athletic Director at Mt. Pisgah Christian School, a K-12th grade private school that serves more than 700 students throughout North Fulton County and Metro Atlanta. Prior to joining Mt. Pisgah Christian School, Kent served as assistant Athletic Director, Upper School Math Teacher and Assistant Director of Admissions at Darlington School in Rome, from where he also graduated.

The 30-year-old school hired the Greenville, S.C.-based search firm of Graybeal and Associates to assist with the search for the new head of school.

“Our goal was to seek a strong spiritual and educational leader who will build community inside and outside the walls of our school. We feel that one role does not have to be compromised for the other,’ Chairman of the Board Tony Farrell said in a statement. “Kent brings exceptional qualifications and talents to Christian Heritage and will direct and strengthen all four pillars of our school while emphasizing our mission which is to educate children to serve Christ.”

Christian Heritage School is a K-12 co-educational, college-preparatory, independent, Christian school located in Dalton that educates and encourages students to push their intellectual boundaries. Christian Heritage School is accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools.
