Schuttinga named CCS president

Posted on 20 February 2017 by calvin

Calvin Christian School (CCS) has announced that Dr. Bethany Schuttinga has accepted the appointment to serve as the school’s next president. Schuttinga brings to CCS a 17-year career in education, having served in administrative leadership at Dordt College (Iowa) and Iowa State University before her most recent role building a platform for Christian education in Indonesia.

Schuttinga will start as CCS’s president on a full-time basis on July 1. Until then, she will work closely with CCS’s current president, Randy Kroll, to ensure a smooth transition, and will spend time getting acquainted with the CCS community and area educational leaders.

Schuttinga received her B.A. from Dordt College, a master’s from Minnesota State University in Mankato, and a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Iowa State University.
Calvin Christian was founded in 1961 and today serves more than 400 students at K-8 campuses in Blaine and Edina and a high school campus in Fridley. As an independent school, unaffiliated with a single church or denomination, the school serves a student body representing scores of churches and more than 45 municipalities in the greater Twin Cities.

Calvin Christian is accredited by the Minnesota Nonpublic Schools Accrediting Association, is a member school of Christian Schools International, and is affiliated with the Minnesota Independent Schools Forum.
