Henry Zondervan is the Superintendent of the Trinity Christian School Association.

Henry graduated from the University of Calgary with a BSc Degree and Teaching Certificate in 1979. In 2006 he also completed an MBA with specialization in Executive Leadership from Royal Roads University, Victoria. His career in education has spanned over 35 years and includes serving as teacher, principal, superintendent and CEO in both Private and Public schools in BC, Ontario and Alberta.

Henry has worked as an Organizational Development Consultant to schools, businesses and charities across Canada, recently serving a term on the Association of Independent Schools & Colleges in Alberta (AISCA) Board. He has also served as a Board member for the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) in Eastern Canada.

From 2012 – 2015 he served as Dean of Education at Bearspaw Christian School, Calgary where he initiated a Home Education Program providing families with blended and fully aligned home education programs.

As Superintendent of Heritage Christian School, Calgary he worked with Home School advocates in creating the Timothy Centre, offering home education support and school site services to many families in Calgary.

Henry’s educational experience in Alberta also included the starting of the Foundations for the Future Charter Academy (FFCA), in Calgary which has grown to 3,200 students in four Elementary Schools, two Middle Schools and one High School. Due to strong public interest in its program FFCA continues to operate with a large wait list. In 2004, the Calgary Board of Education modeled an alternative program based on the FFCA program that now serves over 6,000 students in several locations.

Henry now brings this wealth of knowledge and experience to Trinity Christian School Association as its Superintendent and is proud to serve our students and their families.
