The Chief Executive Team
The governing structure of New Covenant Academy is unique in that, the Board of Directors appoint two equal heads of school; known as the Chief Executive Team. The Chief Academic Officer and the Chief Financial Officer work collaboratively to operate and balance the needs of the school; and are directly accountable to the board of directors. This structure was adopted in 2012 out of a recognized need that in order to have a healthy and solid foundation; we must have equally strong leadership in the area of academics as well as finance, operations and development. It was concluded that it is very difficult to find such varied qualities in a single individual, and thus the team leadership concept was adopted. New Covenant Academy is thriving under this leadership model.
Administrative and Leadership Team
New Covenant Academy's secondary level of leadership known as the Administrative Team includes three principals: High School Principal, 5th - 8th Grade Principal and Jr.K - 4th Principal. The Team also includes the Development Director, Director of Operations and Support Services, and the Jr. Kindergarten Director. A tertiary level of leadership additionally includes a group integral to the daily operations of NCA called the Leadership Team and consists of: the Admissions Officer, Athletic Director, and Executive Support. These teams meet routinely to collaborate and strategically plan.
