The Board of Trustees selects its members through a self-perpetuating process.

Office of the Superintendent

Dedicated to Developing Discerning Leaders

The superintendent reports directly to the Board of Trustees, serves as the overall leader for Cascade Christian Schools, and leads the administrative team, which is made up of directors, school principals, and campus directors and leads.


The administrative team of Cascade Christian Schools meets monthly to address strategic planning and academic matters related to the district and individual school sites. The administrators each lead their own school or area and represent that site/unit in the leadership team decision-making. All other staff members report directly to their building principal or director.
