Ascent Classical™️ Academies (ACA) announces Dr. Clinton Condra as the inaugural Headmaster for its Rock Hill, South Carolina, campus.

Ascent Classical Academy of Fort Mill is one of two schools opening in Fall 2024 and the first two South Carolina campuses for ACA, founded in Golden, Colorado, where it successfully opened an additional five campuses.

Dr. Condra joins the Ascent Classical™️ network from Treasure Valley Classical Academy where he served as headmaster for two years in addition to having worked as Assistant Principal and Dean of Academics for three years. His experience in education spans more than a decade, and, when asked about his philosophy on student learning in a classical environment, he stated, “I regard virtue and wisdom as the highest human capacities and work to cultivate these in the young for the sake of their flourishing and our civilization’s renewal.”

Originally from Virginia, Dr. Condra holds his master’s and doctoral degrees in political science from Baylor University, a master’s degree in liberal arts from St. John’s College, and his bachelor’s degree in music with a minor in history from the College of William & Mary. On the hiring of Dr. Condra, Mr. Matthew Vlahovich, ACA Chief of Schools, said, “We are thrilled to add Dr. Condra’s experience, understanding, and heart for education to create an excellent community at Ascent Fort Mill.”

Ascent Classical™️ Academy of Fort Mill will serve grades K-8 in its opening year and will operate out of its temporary location at Hope Fellowship Church, located at 505 University Drive in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The school’s mission is to train the minds and improve the hearts of young people through a classical, content-rich education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue in an orderly and disciplined environment.
