Portland Christian School is thrilled to welcome its new Head of School, Mr. Josh LeSage, who will begin his tenure on July 1, 2023.

I am delighted to have been offered the gracious invitation to serve as the next Head of School of this great institution. Words are inadequate to express my gratitude, enthusiasm, and sheer joy for this opportunity. I am humbled to follow dedicated leaders like Earl Mullins Sr., our current Director, Jodell Seay, and the other godly men and women who have gone before me in this role.

As we enter our 100th year of partnering with families in Christian education, we will continue to provide high quality, rigorous educational opportunities in a safe, secure, fun, and friendly learning environment. At Portland Christian, each student is nurtured in a distinctively Christian worldview. Specifically, loving God, loving people, and living our lives differently is at the core of our academic program.

This year’s theme is, “Honoring our past while embracing our future.” There is much to celebrate in Portland’s rich history. And there is much to look forward to as we launch the next 100 years. There is great work ahead of us, and we need all of you to fulfill God’s mission for our school.

Currently, Portland is experiencing record growth in enrollment, and we will occupy our newly constructed high school building this fall. We recently dedicated our first outdoor athletic facility with our baseball field, and our newly acquired preschool facility is rapidly growing and will soon be at capacity. We are thankful, and sometimes in awe, of how God is blessing our school.

Growth brings about new opportunities and exciting challenges. My leadership team needs the collective wisdom and resources of our school community. Please pray for me, our Board, my leadership team, and our faculty. Pray that God will instill in us the creativity, boldness, patience, and wisdom required to lead and steward well.

Finally, thank you for your warm welcome. I look forward to serving you, your children, your grandchildren, and your nieces, nephews, neighbors, and friends. My early interactions with stakeholders have been pleasant and encouraging. I am excited to soon have my boots on the ground to meet with many more of you as part of my First 100 Day Plan. We will be announcing those details soon.

Love God, Love People, Live Differently,

Mr. LeSage
