Meet Christina Callaway, the Dean of Student Affairs
Since 2006, Dean Callaway has provided student and parent support for advanced academic programs. She closely monitors the “Accelerated Approach” to the academy’s privately taught, Home School scholars. In addition, she supports families who seek guidance under the College Planning and Tutoring programs available.
With two school aged children of her own, Dean Callaway brings a wealth of personal and relevant experience to the needs of families today. She stays ‘in touch’ with real-world educational challenges, and remains passionate about advocating on behalf of parents’ concerns for their children.
While “Ms. Dean” conducts a lot of “behind the scenes” work, she enjoys promoting students and providing resources to parents. Her passion is teaching Business Development, planning the Exploratory Field Trips, sponsoring National Honor Society Beta Club Members, and supporting College and Career Ready strengths. Dean Callaway also sponsors the “Dean’s Trip” each year, where top scholars who made the Dean’s list not only get a certificate, but they also get a “Day to Play”!
When Miss Brooks asked Chris Callaway to help her professionally develop the Brooks Academy Home School journey, Chris poured over laws, established processes, and hired consultants to ensure they were focusing on meaningful activities and attracting the right students for the best results. Why? Along with Miss Brooks, she doesn’t like fluff or ‘busywork’. This is how the one-of-a-kind, Accelerated Program through the Brooks and Masters Academies was born.
Ask scholars about how Dean Callaway responds to a homework request, and they will reply with her favorite phrase, “Figure It Out”- stated with a raised eyebrow accompanied by a loving smile!
Her goal is to develop a platform for the next generation of Strong Leaders. With the help of Christ, she aspires to support The Brooks and Masters Academies become the “Ivy League” of Home School Programs.
