Dear friends of Alma Heights Christian School,


Greetings! I am excited to join the AHCS family and lead us into the next season of educational scholarship, discipleship, and innovation.

“The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker."
-Helen Keller

Our school is unique. Pacifica’s oceanic views, juxtaposed with the Bay Area’s ever-changing and world-shaping entrepreneurial spirit, distinctly position us to develop young people who are simultaneously ever-curious while grounded in the wonders and mysteries of God’s creation. With our talented team, students will discover their own passions for learning, cultivate compassion for people, and utilize their gifts for God’s kingdom.

The three ingredients that I aim to infuse into AHCS’s already excellent educational offerings are these: Play, Passion, and Purpose. As we instill a sense of playfulness into learning across all ages and disciplines, our young people will gain passion and ultimately a deep sense of purpose for their lives.

We cannot achieve this vision alone. Our schools have come this far because of the partnerships of our community. As we explore new opportunities for enhancement and growth, I invite you to share your time, treasures, and talent. I also look forward to meeting many of you to imagine our school future together.

Helen Keller said: “The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." Together with mighty shoves and tiny pushes, we can develop a generation of young people who will make a positive difference in our world.


Warmly,

Michael Chen, Ed.D.
Head of School
