Holy Trinity Classical Christian School announced Thursday that Rev. Joseph A. Lawrence will be the new Upper School Dean of Students.
Previously, Lawrence has served as a faculty member in the Humane Letters department as well as serving as Upper School Chaplain.
“As Holy Trinity has grown in the range of grades offered as well as in the size of our student body, we have anticipated this new position that will provide oversight, vision, and shepherding of the Upper School faculty and student body,” founding Headmaster Rev. Chad E. Lawrence wrote in a letter to Holy Trinity parents earlier this month. “We have prayed that the Lord would provide the person of His choosing for this important position, and in His graciousness He has provided. So, we are pleased to formally announce that the Rev. Joseph A. Lawrence has answered this call.
“‘Prof.,’ as he is affectionately called around here, and his wife, Joette, and their three children, Samantha, Sophia, and Andrew are no strangers to the Holy Trinity community. But, as a gifted teacher, strong proponent of classical Christian education, and dedicated under-shepherd to the Good Shepherd, we are most confident and hopeful for the future of our school as Dean Lawrence develops this brand-new position.”
Lawrence graduated summa cum laude from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a major in English Literature and a minor in Philosophy, and graduated from Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pa., with a Masters of Divinity.
“Holy Trinity has been a place where charity and fidelity, truth and beauty, valor and virtue are not dusty words from a forgotten past but living realities lighting the way to a meaningful future,” Lawrence said in a release. “I am delighted to serve as the Dean of the Upper School in such a place.”
Holy Trinity Classical Christian School was founded in 2012 and is an independent, non-parochial school which serves more than 400 students in the Beaufort community.
