Jillian Morgan, a 2003 Slippery Rock University master’s graduate, has taken over the leadership at the Creative Learning Christian School in Mercer.
Morgan, originally from Greenville, has previously taught in Germany, Ohio, Kentucky and North Carolina.
She earned her undergraduate degree at Grove City College. She is completing her state administrator certification and is certified as a Christian school administrator.
She told The Herald, Sharon’s daily newspaper, that the school is not just for Christian families, but the curriculum is Christian-based. She said the school compares to the nontraditional atmosphere of a Montessori school, which typically allows students more free from learning with mixed-age classrooms.
Her nonprofit K-12 school, which opened in August, combines its 25 students into about three grade levels per classroom.
Slippery Rock University is Pennsylvania's premier public residential university. Slippery Rock University provides students with a comprehensive learning experience that intentionally combines academic instruction with enhanced educational and learning opportunities that make a positive difference in their lives.
