Meet the Director
Mrs. Marilyn Smith joins our ACCA community as its new Director with nearly twenty years of experience and knowledge in classical educational leadership, most recently serving as the instructional leadership lead at Shelby County Schools in Tennessee. Mrs. Smith earned her undergraduate degree in elementary education from A & E University and completed her master’s degree in educational leadership from Gwynedd Mercy University. She is currently a graduate student at Gwynedd University and in pursuit of a doctorate degree. Mrs. Smith is highly regarded among staff, students, and families within her previous community and she looks forward to working hard to earn your trust at American Classical Charter Academy.
We thank Mr. Mitch Henderson for his leadership and support as we worked to find the perfect permanent director for your school, and we believe that we have! Both leaders are very much loved and appreciated, and we look forward to the future that Mrs. Smith will bring to our school. We know you have a choice for your student’s education, and we appreciate you choosing us as a partner in ensuring your student receives the best classical education possible in a moral and wholesome environment led by a rigorous values-based classical curriculum.
