Andrew J. Hart, Head of School

East Point Academy welcomes the new head of school, Andrew J. Hart, after serving as their deputy head of school for the past four years. Mr. Hart brought 34 years of military leadership, corporate management, and senior naval science instructor experience to East Point Academy when he began as the chief business officer. Mr. Hart holds multiple degrees: an undergraduate degree from Columbia College, Columbia, Missouri; M.Ed. from Argosy University; and an MBA from South University. He is driven personally and professionally, with high expectations for creating a culture of excellence. Mr. Hart and his wife reside in northeast Columbia, where they spend their free time traveling and making memories with their six grandchildren.

East Point Academy is a South Carolina public charter school with a focus on language immersion. They have reached record enrollment for the past five years with more than 700 students in grades 4K through 8th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. Mr. Hart leads his administration team, faculty, and staff in the same way he echoes his own life: always faithful and dedicated to providing the students at East Point Academy the best educational experience possible. He is humbled by the opportunity to serve as the head of the school and praises the board of directors and the families at East Point Academy for their support and generosity.
