Dr. Keith Rice named Associate Head of School for Curriculum & AcademicsAfter an extensive search that began over a year ago, Ascension Episcopal School Administration is pleased to announce that Dr. Keith Rice has accepted the opportunity to serve as our Associate Head of School for Curriculum and Academics beginning July 1, 2021. Dr. Rice will oversee all aspects of our curriculum, including our PK3 - 12th-grade academic program. His responsibilities will involve ensuring vertical alignment and curriculum mapping, and appropriate scope and sequencing of all three campuses' courses. He will also contribute to other critical areas such as faculty professional development, student and faculty scheduling, and standardized testing.
We are excited to work with Keith as he leads our academic programs into the future, partnering with him to turn his vision into a reality. He recently expressed the following regarding his new endeavor:
"I am humbled to serve Ascension Episcopal School as Associate Head of School for Curriculum and Academics. In meeting with members of the leadership team and the faculty, it became clear to me that Ascension is a special school where God’s work is being undertaken by incredibly talented and caring professionals. The faculty, staff, students, and parents with whom my family and I have had the pleasure of meeting are wonderful representatives of this impressive institution, and they could not have been more welcoming. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to work alongside such a gifted faculty and staff, and I can’t wait to get started!"
