TCCS Head of School Search

- December 6, 2017 | Head of School (HOS) search update
Dear TCCS Community, 

On behalf of the School Board, and following an extensive 6-month search process, we are pleased to announce our new Head of School, Mr. Kirk Huckabone.  Kirk will be coming to TCCS in July 2018 from Santa Clarita Christian School, where he has been the Head of School for the last six years. 
 
e9ac3297 d0dc 4481 9f4d 4bd29334c7d0Kirk's extensive history and experience as both an educator and administrator make him an ideal fit for TCCS. Mr. Huckabone spent 18 years as Head Administrator for Cornerstone Christian School in Poway, CA. He's served as an adjunct professor of both Bible and apologetics and held an active role in ACSI for the last 25 years. Kirk and his wife Marlene are natives to San Diego, so in essence, this is a coming home for them. Kirk and Marlene have 3 boys; Colton, currently at Grand Canyon University; Garrett, a senior in high school; and Stephen, a junior in high school.
 
Mr. Huckabone had the opportunity to meet with several TCCS stakeholders, representing all constituencies, and feedback from each group was incorporated when making this decision. The committees were made up of a cross-section of faculty, staff, parents, Church leadership and school Board members; they all unanimously recommended Kirk to the Board. We greatly appreciate the contributions from all involved.
 
6122d34d a375 4607 9ded a8ba75ca2c36Mr. Huckabone will be finishing out this academic year at Santa Clarita Christian before making the transition to TCCS. Please pray for Santa Clarita Christian as they now embark on the process of finding a new Head of School to replace Kirk. In the coming days, we will finalize a transition plan that will allow him to spend time at TCCS before he starts in July 2018. 
 
When we set out to find a new Head of School, we prayed for discernment and wisdom regarding the person God would make available to lead TCCS. We prayed to find somebody with a proven track record as an excellent administrator, an established reputation within the academic community and most of all, a passion to be the school's spiritual leader. Kirk exemplifies all of these attributes and we are blessed to have his family join our community. 
We are grateful that God presented Kirk to Tri-City Christian and for him to see TCCS as his next calling in life.  Once we have a clear transition timeline, we will send out another communication. 
 
Blessings,

Kurt de Pfyffer - Head of School Search Committee Chair
