Interim Executive Director Position Filled

February 23, 2021

Dear Addenbrooke parents, partners, and community members,

On behalf of the board of directors, I am writing to announce that Mr. Robert Wagner has accepted the position of Interim Executive Director at Addenbrooke Classical Academy.

Robert currently serves as the Chief Administrative Officer of Great Hearts, a network of 33 classical liberal arts academies with 20,700 students in grades K–12 in Arizona and Texas. In that capacity, he oversees all aspects of human resources, including the coaching of headmasters, the hiring of teachers, and the leadership development of administrators at all levels. Great Hearts employs 2,500+ staff.

Before joining Great Hearts’ executive management team, Robert served as headmaster of the Arete Preparatory Academy in Gilbert, AZ, for seven years. Previously, he was a math teacher, athletic director, and dean of students at Veritas Preparatory Academy in Phoenix, AZ, and Chandler Preparatory Academy in Chandler, AZ.

Prior to transitioning into education, Robert spent the first 23 years of his career in the private sector building teams, developing leaders, managing quality initiatives, and improving distribution at several engineering and manufacturing companies. He holds an executive MBA from the University of Minnesota, a master's in secondary education, and a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. While he served on active duty for the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard for 12 years, Robert was a communications officer and rose to the rank of Major.

After interviewing Robert and other strong candidates, the board was unanimous in our decision to appoint him to the post. We are so pleased to have a candidate of his distinguished leadership and veteran experience lead Addenbrooke Classical Academy forward into the next chapter in our development. We anticipate that Robert will commence his tenure on Monday, March 8, 2021.

When Robert was discussing the board appointment with me, he expressed his excitement to be able to serve our community and secure the legacy of our founder Charles Wright. Please join us in welcoming Mr. Wagner to the Addenbrooke Classical Academy community.
