House’s school will cultivate creative, compassionate, civically-engaged learners who are active within their local and global community by providing a place-based instructional approach, partnerships with local community organizations, and a focus on supporting the whole child.

House’s leadership at Young Audiences Charter School led to significant increases in student academic achievement, student enrollment and retention, and teacher retention. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Taylor University and a Master’s degree in educational administration and supervision from Ball State University.
