NEW DIRECTOR ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

 Joseph S. Caraher

The Board of Directors of Cornerstone Charter Academy: A Challenge Foundation Academy is pleased to announce that it has unanimously voted to hire Joseph S. Caraher as the school’s next Director.

Joe is a native of Wilmington, DE with a broad educational background including a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Penn State University, a MAEd in Counseling from Wake Forest and a MA in School Administration from UNCG.  He began his career working in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.  In Charlotte, Joe spent time at an elementary school, 4 years at Smith Middle School, and 4 years working at North Mecklenburg High School. 

In 2006, Joe moved to Greensboro, where he started with Guilford County Schools as an assistant principal at Northwest High School for 3 1/2 years.  Subsequent to that, he was named principal at Southwest Guilford Middle School, where he spent the last 4 years.  Southwest has experienced significant gains in Joe’s time there.  He has developed a reputation for getting results by creating teamwork among the staff and community among the students and parents.  Joe has a deep understanding of charter school philosophy and the curriculum used at Cornerstone.  We have found Joe to be insightful, humble and witty.  We have every confidence in his ability to lead Cornerstone.

Along with Joe, we welcome his wife of nine years, Brooke, and two sons, Sam who loves his friends and playing sports like baseball, and Hunter who loves his brother and keeping up with the sports.  Joe’s family is also the proud owners of a three-legged rescue pug named Chops.  In his spare time, Joe enjoys trying to keep his two boys from injuring one another, playing tennis and reading.

The process to select Joe included multiple interviews for our well-qualified applicants.  Administrators, teachers, and parents all participated in the interview process.
