An announcement from our friends at Sevenstar…

Hi John,Sevenstar is excited to announce that Dr. Robert Burris has been selected to serve as our new Principal, effective Monday, September 12, 2016.

Bob is an experienced Christian school educator and administrator, who has more than 20 years of combined experience serving in leadership, ministry, guidance counseling, and teaching roles. He most recently served as the Headmaster of a school in Maryland. He attended Liberty University for his undergraduate degree and also holds a master’s degree and a doctorate degree in educational leadership from the University of Central Florida.

Two of Bob’s notable achievements as a leader are his record of growing school enrollment and raising academic rigor. He has also successfully led online programs at several schools that used Sevenstar to strengthen curriculum and serve Christian school students. As the Head of School in Atlanta, Bob leveraged online classes to work around the demanding training schedule for one of Sevenstar’s first Olympic athlete students! While an administrator in Orlando, Florida, he was able to set up an online learning lab that enabled student athletes and actors to take courses that fit their unusual and demanding schedules, both on and off campus.

He says: “Teachers are the ‘living curriculum’ that make the academic subject come alive, because a great educator does more than teach subject-area content. They are a role model for the kind of lives we hope our students will become.” I (Mark) want to learn how our terrific online teachers play that role already and how we might grow that opportunity!

Bob lives with his family near Charlotte, NC. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters at home and two who are married and live in Atlanta. Jennifer is an elementary teacher and recently returned from a mission trip to Africa where she provided professional development at a teacher’s conference in Ghana. Bob has been to 19 foreign countries and is eager to help Sevenstar fulfill the Great Commission by making a worldwide impact.

We are eager to draw from Bob’s extensive background in Christian education to improve our service to students, parents, teachers, and partner school constituents.

Sevenstar is a world leader in online Christian education and recently celebrated a milestone of reaching 40,000 course enrollments.
