Heritage Preparatory School Appoints Soo Chang Head of School

Soo ChangHeritage Preparatory SchoolThe Minneapolis and Nashville offices of SIMA International are pleased to announce that Soo Chang has accepted the call to become the next head of school at Heritage Preparatory School in Atlanta beginning January 2014.

Soo received an undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California and a Master of Divinity degree from Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California.  Most recently Soo has served as Head of School for Christ Covenant School in North Carolina.  For ten years Soo served in several leadership roles at The Cambridge School of Dallas, a classical Christian college preparatory school. He served as professor of Bible, theology and Church history; ministered to the school community as its Chaplain; served on the accreditation committee; and most notably, promoted the school as its Director of Admissions.

Woody Faulk, Chair of the Board of Directors, shared, “In Soo Chang, we have an organizational leader who has the rare mix of practical business experience, appropriate academic stature, and a mature pastoral heart, all with high quality standards and experience in Classical education. This was a tall order for a Head of School, and few candidates could match that background; yet God has delivered such an individual in Soo Chang.”

Nancy Moore and Laura Coverstone of SIMA assisted the Heritage Search Committee with this process.  Regarding the search process, Woody Faulk commented: “The SIMA team of Nancy Moore and Laura Coverstone were the perfect resource for our unique search.  Our core priority was to identify the right organizational leader, not necessarily the one that was most readily available.  Nancy and Laura understood that direction and presented candidates that truly aligned with our criteria.  Each was highly professional, engaging, and a joy to work with.”

Soo and his wife Cathy have been married for 27 years and have three children, Nathan (Columbia University, 2010), Nicholas (Colgate University, 2012), and Nelson (Northwestern University, Class of 2015).
