Tipton-Rosemark Academy (TRA) was founded in 1965 upon the principle that effective education comes from the combined efforts of parents, teachers, and students working together in a highly motivated Christian learning environment. TRA is dual accredited through the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and currently enrolls 555 students in grades 2K-12th. The Head of School is the spiritual and professional leader of the school responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of TRA. Additionally, the Head of School must be able to develop the school’s financial budget, with the expectation to operate within it. The Head of School is accountable to the Board of Directors and the two are jointly responsible for the success of TRA in serving its community while maintaining a firm spiritual and financial footing.
