Heritage School tabs Skinner as headmaster
Heritage School trustees announced that Matt Skinner is the new Head of School.
Skinner comes to Heritage from Hilton Head Island, S.C., where he served as Headmaster of Hilton Head Christian Academy. Prior to his tenure at HHCA, Skinner served as Headmaster of Landmark Christian School in Fairburn, Ga. From 2003-2011, and Headmaster of Bracken Christian School in Bulverde, Texas from 1996 to 2002.
Skinner also is an ordained minister and served as Executive Pastor of Dogwood Church in Peachtree City, Ga. in 2002. Prior to entering education, he was a CPA for many years and played professional minor league baseball for the Newark Orioles, an organization of the Baltimore Orioles.
In addition to his experience in various fields and at several schools, Skinner comes to Heritage School with a solid knowledge of classical education, having written his Master’s thesis on “A Critique of Classical Education,” which entailed a critical assessment of the classical Christian educational model and its impact on the modern Christian educational movement.
“I am excited to be coming home to Texas and the beautiful Hill Country,” Skinner said. “I am honored to have the opportunity to serve at Heritage School and am impressed with the school and its achievements in its relatively short history. I look forward to continuing to build a school that pursues excellence with passion, challenges our students to become all God has created them to become, and seeks to prepare students for servant leadership and lives that glorify God.”
Skinner and his wife Tracy have three children, Rachel, 26, Leah, 22, and Matthew, 20.
Heritage School serves students from Kerrville, Comfort, Blanco and Llano, among other towns. Heritage has offered a classical and Christ-centered education for students in the Texas Hill Country since 1994.
