The Covenant School of Dallas has appointed Robert Littlejohn as its next head of school, beginning with the 2018–19 academic year.
Littlejohn is head of school at Trinity Academy of Raleigh, a classical Christian school in North Carolina, where he has been for the last 12 years.
Littlejohn, the founding headmaster of New Covenant Schools in Virginia, has extensive collegiate and college preparatory administrative experience. He has a bachelor’s degree in biology from Baylor University, a master’s in biology from Stephen F. Austin State University, and a doctorate in botany from Washington State University. He authored Wisdom and Eloquence about classical liberal arts learning.
“He is truly one of the top contributors to the classical Christian education movement throughout the nation,” said J.J. Barto, chairman of Covenant’s board of trustees.
