Rock Academy Welcomes New High School Principal, Michelle Glenn


The Rock Academy is pleased to announce that Mrs. Michelle Glenn has been hired as the Principal of the Rock Academy Junior and Senior High School.  Michelle received her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees from California State University, Fullerton, and pursued her Doctorate in English at Claremont Graduate University.

She has been serving in education for 24 years, beginning as a teacher of English and literature at Foothill Country Day School in Claremont, one of the top private college prep schools in the country.  Having the desire to integrate her faith into the classroom, she moved to Santa Fe Christian Schools in Solana Beach in 1994.  There she chaired the English Department and taught Advance Placement English Literature before invited to take on an administrative role.  For the past 5 years she has served as the Middle School Assistant Principal while also overseeing K – 12 Professional Development.  In 2015, she led Santa Fe Christian Middle School’s successful effort to become a National Blue Ribbon School.

While Mrs. Glenn’s academic and administrative experience is vast and impressive, what attracted us most is her love for the Lord and desire to serve students.  She believes in integrating God’s truth into all subject matters and developing students’ hearts for serving the Lord and others.  Her passion is to serve all students with excellence; those who are academically gifted and those who may struggle in the classroom, but shine in other ways.  Michelle is married to Brian, who has served as a U.S. Navy SEAL for the past 28 years.  They live in the Clairemont area.

We are thrilled to welcome Mrs. Glenn to the Rock Academy family!
