With almost 20 years in education, including 14 as an administrator, Lowe most recently earned a doctorate in educational leadership with an emphasis in educational technology
Prince of Peace Christian School welcomes Dr. Jeremy Lowe as the new high school principal. Previously Dr. Lowe served as both head of school and principal at Vail Christian High School, a college-prep school in Edwards, Colorado. This year he received his doctoral degree in educational leadership with a specialization in educational technology from the University of Phoenix.
Lowe has served in an administrative role for the past 14 out of almost 20 years in education. Before his tenure at Vail Christian High School, he served as executive director/principal at Lutheran High School, La Verne, California, for five years. Lowe received his undergraduate education at Jamestown College in Jamestown, North Dakota, with a double major in English and physical education, a minor in coaching and an emphasis in secondary education. He then received his Colloquy and master’s degree in educational administration from Concordia University in Irvine, California. He has also served as a coach for varsity baseball, football, basketball, and golf and has taught English and theology.
“There was never any doubt in my mind that I wanted to pursue a career in education,” said Dr. Lowe. “My dad was an educator for 47 years, and he set an excellent example for the family man and person I strive to be. He encouraged and served others – not only as an educator but also in public service.”
“Dr. Jeremy Lowe brings a wealth of administrative experience and knowledge in secondary education from coaching to instruction and management,” said Chris Hahn, head of school, Prince of Peace Christian. “He is recognized by his peers for his expertise and is an ideal choice to lead our students as they complete their high school years.”
Born in Englewood, California, Lowe moved at a young age to Minnesota, where he grew up and began his first job in education. He has consulted with Christian schools across the U.S and is a sought-after speaker at teacher conferences.
“I love working in a high school environment, getting to know the freshmen and seeing them graduate,” added Lowe. “It’s such an important time of their lives, and I consider it an honor to walk alongside them, share in their highs and lows, and to prepare them for the future. I stress to all my students that they are capable of more than they think they are – they can be more active, learn more, and serve more. Being part of a dynamic learning environment challenges you to seek knowledge. Education should be meaningful and enjoyable. When it is, you create life-long learners.”
Dr. Lowe, his wife Mandy, and his three children, Matthew, 7, Zachary, 9, and Rachel, 11, now reside in West Plano.
“Texas has welcomed my family and me with open arms, and while we’ll miss many friends we left behind in Colorado, we are looking forward to experiencing some milder winters here!” added Lowe.
“While I was familiar with Prince of Peace’s well-respected reputation as a progressive high school and its significant growth rate, I had not experienced what it was like to be on this campus. The sense of community here is inspiring,” added Lowe. “Now as part of this exceptional team of educators, it is my hope to play an impactful role in leading POPCS to the next iteration of itself as we continue to graduate disciples and leaders for service and success in the 21st century.”
