Founding Head of School
Rachael Oren is the founding Head of School at The Classical Academy. With over fifteen years of experience in education, Rachael brings a wealth of passion, knowledge, and expertise to The Classical Academy. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education and a Masters of Education with a concentration in curriculum development and management. In addition to her work in the public and private sector of education, Rachael has home educated her school-age children since 2014 before launching the Academy.
Having spent significant time in both educational sectors of home and the classroom, Rachael found that there is a wealth of benefit from both. Her passion for classical, Christian education and her passion for strengthening families is what motivated her to launch The Classical Academy. Rachael has a strong desire to see students develop a lifelong love of learning and grow into articulate, passionate, servant-led thought leaders who inspire and lead the next generation. Rachael and her husband Jon have five children and live in a 106-year old schoolhouse.
