    We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Amanda Van Vactor is our Interim Head of School at Mt. Juliet Christian Academy. 

    Having been at MJCA for 34 years, she carries the spirit and heart of MJCA and has the full confidence of our School Supervisory Team and Leadership. Mrs. Van Vactor arrived at MJCA in the fall of 1987 and began as a 5th-grade Elementary school teacher. After 17 years of teaching, she served as the Elementary Principal. She has also previously served as our Interim Head of School. For the last 3 years, she has faithfully served as our Associate Head of School. Furthermore, she has served on the ACSI accreditation commission for the southeast region for seven years, including many accreditation and peer review teams throughout the region. She holds a master’s degree in education from Middle Tennessee State University. Mrs. Van Vactor has devoted her life’s work to Christian education and is passionate about teaching students God’s Word.

    We believe the best days are ahead for our school and our campus for the glory of God, and are committed now more than ever to our mission and vision focusing on excellence in Spiritual Development and Leadership, Academic Excellence, Competitive Athletics, and Comprehensive Fine Arts. Soli Deo Gloria!
