My name is Richard Clayton and I am the secondary principal at Calvary Christian Academy. I have spent the last eleven years teaching pre-AP and AP social studies courses to middle and high school students at CCA. I hold bachelor’s degrees in Integrated Social Studies and History. Additionally, I hold a Masters degree in Education. My mission at CCA has always been to educate the mind but more importantly to develop the spirit. I have been married to my wife Charlene for 35 years. I have three wonderful daughters who are married and I have two grandkids. I enjoy camping, eating, football, hiking, music, soccer, and traveling.
