The Board of Trustees of Whitinsville Christian School is pleased to announce that Sarah Bowler has accepted the role of Head of School, effective January 12, 2024. Sarah has served as Interim Head of School since July of 2023.
Sarah is a graduate of WCS (Class of 1995) and brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record in educational leadership. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Bachelor of Arts from Gordon College and a Master of Arts from UMass Lowell. She is a Massachusetts licensed administrator and has 22 years of experience in education, including as a Curriculum/Campus Coordinator in Qingdao, China.
Sarah joined WCS in 2010 as an elementary teacher, and was named Preschool/Elementary Principal in 2015. In all of her roles at WCS, she has exhibited a passion for guiding students toward a holistic education that encompasses not only academic achievement, but also spiritual and personal growth.
“I am grateful for the support and encouragement I’ve received and I am excited to make the shift from interim to Head of School,” said Sarah. “I have served many roles at WCS including student, parent, alumni, teacher, and principal, and each has further developed my love for this community. I look forward to partnering with our families, faculty and staff, and faithful supporters as we strive to fulfill our mission, relying on God for wisdom and guidance.”
“Our work with CACE (the Center for the Advancement of Christian Education) was instrumental in helping the search committee engage our community, identify the needs of WCS, and ultimately determine that Sarah is the best person to serve as our next Head of School,” said Erika Johnson, President of the Board. “Sarah has been a member of the community in a variety of roles, each with their own unique perspective and experiences. We are thrilled that her leadership in Christian education will allow Whitinsville Christian School to deliver upon our mission, as we draw close to our 100th anniversary in 2028, and embark upon the next 100 years.”
