Secondary School


As the CCHS Secondary Principal and Student Support Coordinator it is a pleasure to continue to collaborate and build relationships within the entire school community. I look forward to working with an exceptionally talented faculty to empower our CCHS’s secondary students in their pursuit of excellence through continuous rigor within our curriculum and exceptional leadership through the many enrichment activities. I believe it takes the collaboration of an entire school community to achieve sustained success in any educational institution. Families are a key component of our educational program, and their voices as with our students are always respectfully welcomed as part of our educational programming.
