Meet our New Headmaster
Mr. Andrew Youngblood
Andrew Youngblood has been named Headmaster of Regina Luminis Academy, a pre-k to12 Catholic classical education school located in Berwyn, PA. He was previously Program Director for the Chesterton Scholars Program at Cardinal O’Hara High School in Springfield, PA, a member of the Chesterton Schools Network, a consortium of classical Catholic schools in the United States and abroad. Serving concurrently as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the Chesterton Schools Network, he has helped found over 50 classical Catholic schools.
Mr. Youngblood is recognized internationally as an expert in the field of classical Catholic education with over 20 years of experience in teaching, administration, training, and consulting. He is the author of a series for teenagers about Scripture, “The Covenant Kids,” and a book, “Know Thyself, Classical Catholic Education and the Discovery of Self” to be published by Word on Fire in October.
Born in Texas, Mr. Youngblood’s family moved frequently due to his father’s work as a civil servant for the military. As a result, he attended middle and high school in Belgium where he learned to speak French and Dutch. Upon returning to the States, he attended University of Virginia and Christendom College for his undergraduate studies in History, and taught Theology at Christendom College while pursuing his doctorate in Theology at the Catholic University of America.
Mr. Youngblood says that his goal in education is to create an environment where students fall in love with Christ. “We are fortunate to have a person of Mr. Youngblood’s international stature join the Regina Luminis Academy community,“ said Mr. Mark Anthony, chairperson of the Board of Directors. “He brings multiple talents to his new position as an innovator, teacher, and administrator. The board is charging him with upgrading all aspects of the school without compromising the Catholic and classical convictions and commitments that bind us together – teachers, students, and parents – in sustaining a unique educational and spiritual environment.”
