New Head of School Announced
On Monday, April 17, the Westminster Schools of Augusta Board of Trustees announced that Mr. Brian Case has accepted the call to be the next Head of School at Westminster Schools of Augusta.
“On behalf of the entire board, I want to say how pleased we are with the thorough work of the search committee and with their recommendation of Brian Case,” said Board of Trustees Chair John Phelan. “We continue to be moved by his passion for gospel-focused education, his desire to honor God in all things and his servant leadership. We are excited to see how the Lord will work through him as a blessing to Westminster.”
Mr. Case’s 23-year career in education allowed him to serve in various capacities, including: teacher, coach and athletic director, before coming to Westminster in 2012 to fill the then newly-created position of middle school principal. As Middle School Principal, he grew enrollment, initiated a grace-based discipline program, and instituted a growth and development faculty evaluation system. The Board of Trustees asked him to step in as Interim Head of School last summer. In this capacity, he expanded the grace-based discipline program to the Upper School, assisted in the launch of an impressive technology initiative in the Middle School called 1:World, and saw the school’s $1M capital campaign challenge to a successful completion.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in History from Furman University and his master’s degree from Georgia State University. Mr. Case is currently pursuing an Education Specialist degree in Leadership from Gordon College. He is a member of First Presbyterian Church. He and his wife Jamie have three children who attend Westminster.
“When our family first set foot in Augusta five years ago, we were embraced by the vibrant community and impressed by the excellent faculty and staff at Westminster,” Mr. Case said concerning his transition to Westminster. “Our love and appreciation for this school has only grown. I am now humbled and honored to lead Westminster in this next phase of growth and development. I am excited to accept the call to assist Westminster in living out its strong mission to glorify God by providing an excellent education that equips students to live extraordinary lives for Jesus Christ.”
