Tracey Pritchard, head of school at Hebron Christian Academy, is departing the school, effective June 30, according to an announcement from Hebron’s marketing and communications staff.
Pritchard accepted a position as head of school at The Christian Academy in Brookhaven, Penn. She will be moving to near her hometown and family while working in her new position.
“Hebron Christian Academy is special, and I appreciate the opportunity to lead the faculty and teachers over the last three years,” she said in a statement.
The Hebron Board of Directors will begin an immediate nationwide search for Pritchard’s replacement for the 2020-2021 school year. Lower School Principal Cacye Waters and Upper School Principal Matt Annett will be interim co-heads of school.
Qualified professionals who are interested in the position should email a cover letter and resume to the search committee at HOS_applicants@hebronlions.org.
“Tracey has played a critical role in the development and success of the school, and her energy and enthusiasm for students and faculty will certainly be missed,” Board Chairman Steve Parr said.
Pritchard has been head of school at Hebron since 2016. She stepped in during July that year to replace outgoing headmaster Timothy Hillen. During her tenure at the Dacula-based private school, Pritchard has overseen an increase in student enrollment, faculty and course offerings, as well as an increase in funding. Hebron opened a state-of-the-art middle school as well as a fine arts center during her tenure.
Expansions to athletics facilities also occurred during her time as head of school at Herbon.
Hebron has an enrollment of nearly 1,000 kindergarten through 12th-grade students.
Construction of a new athletic complex began and the preexisting football field was converted to turf. Additional of tennis courts were added to the tennis complex.
There has also been an increased emphasis on fine arts with the addition of dance and film classes.
