Meet Our Staff
Monte & Rachael Hawkins
Monte’s professional background began in public education both as a teacher and as an administrator/principal for over 10 years. While Monte enjoyed learning and serving in the public school setting, he and Rachael often dreamed of opening a school together to promote not just academics, but principle based living as well. Rachael is a certified Life Coach and has enjoyed spending many years working with youth in various different settings, but has found her niche working with teenagers. It is both Monte’s and Rachael’s goal and vision to provide girls with the opportunity to succeed academically, emotionally and physically. They are so excited to see their dream come to reality as they help each student continue to grow, succeed, and prepare for a successful life in college, the workforce, in their future homes and families, and life in general.
