As the new Upper School principal of CCSC, Chris Cook has a pretty good idea of what he’s getting himself into and he loves it.
Reared in a family of teachers - his grandmother, mother, and two aunts are all professional educators -
Mr. Cook has wanted to be a principal since he was 13. “I know how influential a figure the school principal can be,” he says. “I want to truly impact kids’ lives. The passion I have for education derives largely from the content of the interactions my family had in regards to education, and my family’s belief in the transformative power of education.”
This is his first year as principal of CCSC’s Upper School. He replaces Caleb Hurst-Hiller, who has been promoted to Head of School.
The Long Island, NY native graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in Sociology and later earned his master’s degree in School Leadership at Harvard University.
