He began his educational career in 1985 at Jupiter Christian School in south Florida then served 5 years at the Whitefield Academy in Louisville, KY.
In July 2005, Mr. Rose became Assistant Head of School at The First Academy. After 10 years of years serving in that role, he transitioned to Upper School Principal. He was blessed to work with the students and faculty in that capacity until he was asked to return to serve as Assistant Head of School for Advancement.

This office is committed to securing the needed resources through the generosity of our families to train the next generation of Christian leaders.
He thanks his wife, Debra, for the everyday support she has given him during their thirty-two years of marriage; together, they are proud parents of two TFA Alumni – Michael, who is completing his graduate degree in Business Administration at Mississippi College, and Lyndee, who is completing her senior year at Florida State University. Mr. Rose enjoys meeting families and developing lasting relationships and believes that the students, families, and faculty and staff make TFA the finest Christian college preparatory school in America.
