Steve Dement

Founder, Acting Head of School, Teacher - U.S. History, U.S. Government, Practical Politics

The Brook Hill School is the ongoing reality of a vision first realized in 1989 during a Bible study of which Stephen Dement was a part. He refers to Brook Hill as a symphony where God is the conductor who brings in just the right people at just the right time to accomplish His purposes. Although imparting academic skills and knowledge and the application thereof are the primary responsibilities of a college preparatory school, Mr. Dement recognizes that our ultimate responsibility is to bring glory to God as students are encouraged to honor, serve, and rely upon Him in all that they do.

Mr. Dement holds three degrees from Baylor University: Bachelor of Arts, Master of Business Administration, and Juris Doctor. He has taught at The University of Texas at Tyler and owns and operates Landmark Title, Inc. as well as a real estate law practice. His background as a business owner and attorney has equipped him to bring practical experiences to the classroom as he discusses our government and legal system. His love of U.S. history is indicated by his collection of historical artifacts exhibited in the comprehensive American Freedom Museum on the Brook Hill campus which opened its doors in 2010. The U.S. Government and U.S. History classes he teaches have been certified by Colorado Christian University and enable students to receive three (3) college credit hours and six (6) college credit hours respectively. He also teaches Practical Politics, a course that explores current cultural and legal issues along with how to navigate those issues as Christian students.
