Constantly Improving

In the short time Dr. Aaron Farrant has been Head of School at TCS, he has made many positive changes that have impacted our school and students. “I have enjoyed getting to know our TCS families, learning about their lives and hearing what is important to them,” he says. “It is important to me to always strive to make things better. I am excited about the opportunity to build upon the strong foundation TCS has established, and am encouraged by the improvements our staff has made this year. A few of my favorite changes are: our middle school house system, growth mindset initiative, and our math pilot program. These additions are improving what we offer at TCS and allowing us to better serve our families.”

Currently, Aaron is focused on even more improvements to our school. “My team and I have been working on another exciting initiative – a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Lab,” he says. “The STEAM Lab will benefit all of our students.  It will be a place where students can engage in hands-on lessons that will bring their learning to life!  I am also excited about another initiative we are planning: a Student Support Center, which will help every student here at TCS fulfill their potential.”

“In my role as Head of School, I am blessed to spend my time helping children become the men and woman God created them to be,” says Aaron. “I love all the various aspects of my job, but my favorite time is when I have the opportunity to step into the classrooms and engage with the students. Activities such as reading to our younger students, dressing up as Johnny Appleseed, leading science experiments, and teaching Bible lessons remind me of exactly why we are so blessed to do what we do each day.”

Aaron continues, “My wife Jennie and I are thankful that our boys, Eli and Austin, are students at The Christ School. TCS is preparing them to impact this world for Christ. They are growing academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and most important spiritually. TCS is reinforcing the values we teach at home.”

“Although our lives can become busy, we always make it a priority to spend time together as a family,” says Aaron. “We have been discovering Winter Garden and enjoy visiting the Farmer’s Market. We also love to play games, make things, and ride bikes and scooters together. My boys and I are still looking forward to our first camping experience in Florida.”

Aaron shares his favorite Bible verse: Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.1 John 3:18
