Interim Head of School | ext. 115
Chris Harper joined our Grace Prep team in August of 2016. Chris’ diverse professional background includes serving as an administrator in both public and privates schools as well as pastoring and planting local churches. Chris holds a Masters Degree from the University of Louisville and is an ordained minister.
Chris’ philosophy of education begins in the home. Chris holds to the biblical principle that dad and mom are the first and foremost teachers, disciple makers, and magistrates in the life of their child(ren). Chris believes that University Model Schools best advance this philosophy as they give time and authority back to parents so that they can “train up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph 6:4).
Chris is married to Allyson and they have three children; Scarlett, Malachi, and Calvin.
“What I appreciate most about Grace Prep is that it is a place where I can share and live out my faith. And this is important because I’ve learned that children have never been very good at listening to adults, but they have never failed to imitate them.”
