Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Monday, February 26th, 2024

After an extensive and prayerful search, the Holy Trinity Classical Christian School Board of Governors announced this week the selection of Kevin Bolen as new Head of School for the 2024-25 school year. A native of South Carolina and graduate of Columbia International University in Columbia, Mr. Bolen comes to Holy Trinity with 14 years experience in classical Christian schools. 

Mr. Bolen began his career teaching middle school Literature, Grammar, and Writing to students, along with teaching Bible classes for high schoolers at Covenant Classical Christian School in Columbia. In the 2013-14 school year, he became Head of School at Covenant, serving in that role until 2019, when he took a position as K-12 Principal at Trinity Christian School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 

Mr. Bolen is excited to return to South Carolina and join the team at Holy Trinity in offering a formative education to area families. When asked about classical Christian education, he said, “The great genius of classical Christian education is its focus on shaping the inner character of students, preparing them for both college and adult life by stirring their hearts to pursue wisdom, virtue, and scholastic excellence with a sense of joy and wonder in God’s creation.”

Mr. Bolen and his wife, Gretchen, have three children: one in college in the Philadelphia area, and two who will join the student body at Holy Trinity.

Founded in 2012, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School (HTCCS) provides students with a distinctly Christian and distinctively classical education in Beaufort.
