New Executive Director Announced

Dear OPA Community,


This afternoon the Board of Directors announced its decision to offer Dr. Amy Kernan the position of Executive Director. Over the past two months, OPA families and staff participated in a rigorous process to select the most qualified candidate for this position. 

Dr. Kernan joined Oxford Preparatory Academy in August 2018 as SOC Chancellor and OPA Chief Academic Officer. She is highly respected as an educational leader in Orange County and has led initiatives at OPA that close the achievement gap and prepare all students to transition with success to high school.  During the coming weeks, Dr. Kernan will work with the Board and Ms. Marks, who previously announced her retirement, to transition to this role.

On behalf of OPA, we sincerely thank Ms. Marks and Dr. Kernan for their significant accomplishments and commitment to our community and wish each the best in their new pursuits and opportunities.


Board of Directors
