Alpine Academy of Rockford

principal

Welcome!

At Alpine Academy of Rockford, we understand that parents want what’s best for their children. This is why our certified teachers in Rockford, IL go the extra mile to give our students an all-encompassing Christian education and a wonderful learning experience. We focus on strengthening their faith, bringing them closer to their families, and guiding them to have a successful future.

Our school offers a well-rounded curriculum for each grade level from preschool to sixth grade. With our exceptional academic programs and teaching methods, you can count on us to help your child develop into a creative and critical thinker.

For the past four years I have been Principal of Alpine Academy. After leaving the public school arena, I had hoped to plant roots where my faith could find a home, and I found that nourishment here at Alpine. We may have small classes, but we have a variety of learning experiences. Students can thrive. Learning can thrive. Faith can thrive.

I spent 43 years teaching, counseling, or administering. I have spent 26 years in college, seeking to be a life long learner. My teaching experiences range from primary school to junior college and I have experience teaching in all five major academic subjects. God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, Laurel, three sons, and two grandchildren. I enjoy my moments together with them. I am planning on many years as Principal of Alpine Academy. This is home
