After a thorough search process, Westminster Christian School is pleased to announce that Scott Jones has been hired as Head of School, effective July 2018. Jones comes to Westminster with an impressive record of leadership and success in Christian education and business. We are grateful for David Medder’s willingness to continue serving as interim Head of School during this transition, and we look forward to his leadership and involvement with WCS now and in the future.
Jones most recently served as Head of School for Black Forest Academy (BFA), a prestigious Christian boarding school in Kandern, Germany, attended primarily by the children of European-based mission families. During Scott’s seven-year tenure at BFA, he led the school through mid-term accreditation with three different agencies, revised and improved the school’s organizational structure, and acquired property and completed renovations on two facilities.
“Mr. Jones’ extensive experience successfully leading Christian schools coupled with his background in organizational management and strategic planning make him exceptionally qualified to lead Westminster Christian School,” said Alex Trujillo, President of the WCS Board of Trustees. “I am looking forward to working alongside him as we plan Westminster’s future.”
Previously, Jones was the Head of School at Naples Christian Academy, in Naples, FL, where he completed a successful academic and financial turnaround that culminated in multiple awards and accreditation recognitions for the school during his eight years of service. He also spent time in Palmetto Bay in the early 1990s serving in youth ministry at Perrine Baptist Church, now known as Christ Fellowship.
"It is an honor and a privilege for me to serve WCS as its next Head of School. My family and I are thrilled about becoming members of the WCS family and we look forward to getting to know WCS and each of you during the coming school year," said Scott Jones, newly appointed WCS Head of School. "WCS is a fantastic school with a strong reputation of preparing hearts, inspiring lives, and empowering learners in South Florida. I look forward to working together with you as we prepare our WCS students to faithfully serve as ambassadors for Christ."
Jones graduated from Rice University with a Bachelor of Arts, and earned a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of Hawaii. He and his wife Cammy have two sons who will begin attending WCS in the 2018-2019 school year.
Please join us in welcoming the Jones family to WCS and in praying for them as they transition back to the United States and South Florida.
