Dean Unsicker, a longtime figure in Georgia private Christian schools, has been named the next head of school at Horizon Christian Academy.
Unsicker will replace Horizon’s current head of school, Gary Bennett, who intends to step down at the end of the school year, according to a press release from the school. The two will work together in the school’s final months to “provide the faculty and students a seamless transition for the 2019-20 school year.”
Unsicker most recently served as headmaster at Rosehill Christian School in Tomball, Texas, just outside of Houston, but he has a history in Georgia. Unsicker previously worked at DeKalb Christian Academy, Providence Christian Academy and Loganville Christian Academy.
“My wife and I are excited to become a part of the HCA family,” Unsicker said in a prepared statement. “It is my goal to live out my favorite verse (Galatians 2:20) and build and prepare young minds to serve others and become leaders grounded in their own faith.”
Unsicker is a graduate of Fort Wayne Bible College (now Taylor University) in Upland, Ind., and has a master’s in Christian school administration from Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, Ind.
