About Father Ignatius
A classical grammar school teacher, a priest, a soldier in the US Army, and a musician: Father Ignatius Warren returns to Christ the Savior Academy with his wide-range of experience to lead as the Interim Headmaster. Father Ignatius formerly taught second grade at CSA, but he left three years ago to work on
his PhD in Clinical Psychology. Central to his work at CSA, his coursework has included key areas of child development and learning, assessment, social interaction, and behavioral strategies to optimize learning.
“Christ the Savior Academy holds a special place in my heart,” Father Ignatius said. “As both a teacher at CSA and a priest at St. George Orthodox Christian Cathedral, I have been blessed to see the growth and education that is possible with a classical curriculum focused on the development of the whole child within a small, individually-focused family environment, all while remaining centered on Jesus Christ. It is this emphasis that makes CSA unique. I am overjoyed to continue to be a part of CSA and to serve as Interim Headmaster while the school conducts a nationwide search.”
“My years spent as a teacher in both public and private schools gives me a fundamental knowledge and experience of the process of teaching and learning,” Father Ignatius said. “I have taught students of every level from Pre-Kindergarten through university undergraduates. My experience will enable me to help refine
and improve our day-to-day operations as a school, continue to improve the excellent classroom instruction from our teachers, while ensuring that we remain true to our Classical and Orthodox Christian identity.”
The Board of Directors of CSA believe Father Ignatius will serve as a steady, calming leader to our teachers, parents and, most importantly, students at this unprecedented time. “Life in the midst of a pandemic has stretched us all in uncomfortable ways,” Father Ignatius said. “Classical education is timeless education, which grounds us when everything else feels unprecedented. Further,
classical education focuses on the development of the whole person – mind, body and soul. The difficulty of these times has brought out the importance of character development, resolve, growth in virtue, and the necessity of trust in God – key aspects of daily life that have been particularly highlighted over the past
