Dr. Tracey Pritchard Departing as Hebron Christian Academy’s Head of School
 
Dacula, GA: The Hebron Christian Academy Board of Directors announces the departure of Dr. Tracey Pritchard as Head of School, effective June 30, 2019. “Tracey has played a critical role in the development and success of the school, and her energy and enthusiasm for students and faculty will certainly be missed,” says Steve Parr, Chairman of the Board. Tracey will be moving back to her hometown to be closer to family and has recently accepted a new position as Head of School at The Christian Academy in Pennsylvania. “Hebron Christian Academy is special, and I appreciate the opportunity to lead the faculty and teachers over the last three years,” says Tracey Pritchard, Head of School.
 
Under Dr. Pritchard’s leadership, HCA reached several key milestones, including:
 
  • Increased student enrollment, staffing, and class offerings
  • Increased funding
  • Development of two state-of-the-art buildings
  • Construction of a new athletic complex and the conversion to turf for the existing football field
  • Addition of four tennis courts to the tennis complex
  • Increased emphasis on fine arts by adding dance and film classes
 
The Board of Directors has formed a search committee that will immediately conduct a national search to find the new Head of School for the 2020/2021 school year. To maintain a stable and effective school leadership, the Board named Cayce Waters, Lower School Principal, and Matt Annett, Upper School Principal, as “Co-Interim Heads of School.” Information about the Head of School position can be found at www.hebronlions.[1] org.
