Providence Classical School - School Board, 24 July 2011 [cached]
Yet, at PCS we have the great fortune to have Troy Wathen as our first and only Headmaster since the school started in 2000. Troy has done an excellent job in guiding the school through the inevitable challenges of a new school to become the vibrant, growing, school of 270 students. His leadership last semester in guiding us through the Accreditation process, as well as the move, was superb. His commitment to Christian education is further seen through his desire to get his Doctorate in Christian Education at BIOLA University's Talbot School of Theology.

Troy Wathen, Ed.D., Associate Director
With nearly twenty years of teaching and educational leadership experience, Troy brings a rich understanding of classical education to SLOCA. In 2000, Troy moved from Southern California to become the founding headmaster of a classical school in Houston, Texas. During that time, the school grew from a handful of families to over 300 students in 2010 and nearly fifty graduates from the high school. Troy has been encouraged to see that classically educated graduates are more than able to excel in some of the finest universities in the country. It is also encouraging to watch students mature and participate in activities such as mock trial, speech and debate, and athletics with excellence. Troy believes that the classical model of education is applicable to all areas of life and offers great hope for training the mind, body and spirit of the individual. Troy has spoken nationally on topics of classical education, student discipline, non-profit leadership and governance, and the classical family life.
Troy received his Bachelors in Economics and Business from Westmont College, his masters in Educational Administration from Azusa Pacific University, and his doctorate in Educational Studies from Biola University. The emphasis of his doctoral studies was on the development of intentionally engaged students. He hopes to bring the strategies uncovered in his studies to the students at SLOCA to foster a true love of learning that comes when we fully engage our minds in the learning process. Troy will be working on student development in addition to practicing his craft of teaching with our lower middle school students. He is very enthusiastic about learning alongside his students and encouraging this same pursuit in the families of SLOCA.
Troy has been married to his wife, Summer, for over twenty years, and they have two daughters, Faith-Marie and Grace.
