“For the spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7
In 2006, I had the opportunity to serve as a teaching faculty in the infancy of Taipei Adventist Preparatory Academy, what you know today as The Primacy Collegiate Academy. The experience left an indelible imprint on me for many reasons, not least of which was how the school, as a collective whole, earnestly strove towards cultivating the essential life skills and values in our students that would be pivotal in achieving their own individual goals.
Through the years since then, even as I held leadership positions in schools in Taiwan and Mainland China, I continued to watch and appreciate the different paths that students from this institution took. I have witnessed students from this institution branch out and be successes in the fields of medicine, a broad range of the arts, science, technology, entrepreneurship, athletics, media, social work, and education, to name just a few.
This spirit of focusing on student outcomes, recognizing the uniqueness of each student, and facilitating mechanisms for individual student success has always been intrinsic to what makes Primacy special, right from its early stages. I am delighted that not only has that remained unchanged, but that it has gotten stronger as can be seen through adaptive transformation and initiatives.
As the Principal of The Primacy Collegiate Academy, I will be working together with the academy level Primacy team and the Primacy Education Group leadership team to ensure that student success continues to remain the heart of all that we do. I look forward to meeting with you in person and taking this journey in education with you.
