Director of Regnum Christi in Atlanta

For 11 years I worked at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Sacramento, a Catholic Church for hispanic immigrants. It broke my heart to see so many hispanic kids failing in public schools. So, we decided to start a school co-op using the church grounds. We made use of a charter school to support our endeavors. Still, we wanted our kids to have a firm appreciation for the values that America’s Founding Fathers.  Back in 2007 I was referred to Dean Forman by a friend. He accepted a volunteer position teaching our high schoolers. I was very impressed by his dedication and passion for America’s heritage.  He was so good with the kids. They loved him. We became friends. Little would I know that this would be one of the triggers that would inspire him to found John Adam’s Academy later on. I feel honored to have played a role in his leading a revolution in education.

I am co-founder and CEO of the John Adams Academies, an institution that is perhaps the most unique charter school system in America today. The Academies’ curriculum is designed to give its students an American Classical Leadership Education®. This is an education that pursues truth, beauty and goodness and turns its scholars outward in search of those whom they can serve in becoming servant leaders. This website is dedicated to sharing the concepts of an American Classical Leadership Education with its readers so that more citizens can benefit from the truth, virtue and wisdom of the past.
