Dedicated to Developing Discerning Leaders

Leaders Team

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