Welcome Brook Hill’s New Head of School, Braxton Brady

I am thrilled to share an exciting update regarding our school leadership.

After an extensive search process and much prayer from the entire Brook Hill community, I am pleased to announce that Braxton Brady will join Brook Hill as our new Head of School, effective July 1, 2024.

Braxton comes to us with a wealth of experience, currently serving as the Head of School at Evangelical Christian School in Memphis, Tennessee. In this role, he has demonstrated exceptional leadership overseeing a school with over 950 students, spanning grades Pre-K through 12. Additionally, Braxton has a strong background in theological studies, having earned his MA from Covenant Theological Seminary.

Braxton’s heart is for students and he believes intentional discipleship is an essential practice in preparing this generation for their future in Christ’s kingdom. We believe his value for relationships and vision for the role they play in a student’s education will strengthen and deepen Brook Hill’s culture.

Beyond his professional achievements, Braxton is a devoted husband and father. He and his wife Carrie have three children: Preston, a football coach at Florida State; Bennett, a football player at Tennessee; and Emma Sanders, who will be a junior in high school this fall.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the Carter Baldwin search firm for their outstanding guidance throughout this process. Their expertise has been invaluable in identifying the perfect candidate to lead our school into the future.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank Jared Green and Lindsay Stansberry for their exceptional leadership as search committee co-chairpersons. Their dedication, alongside the entire Board of Trustees, has played a crucial role in this successful search.

This announcement marks a significant moment in the life of our school, and we are confident that Braxton’s leadership will further elevate Brook Hill and our mission to educate the next generation for Christ and His kingdom.

We look forward to welcoming the Brady family to our community and embarking on this exciting new chapter together.

Please join me in congratulating Braxton Brady on his appointment as our new Head of School.


All my best,


Stephen Dement

Founder & Acting Head of School

Chairman of the Board of Trustees
