Andrews Academy is pleased to announce that Rubén Pérez Schulz has been selected as the school's next principal. His appointment came at the Andrews Academy Governing Board meeting on Wednesday, June 5, after a three-month national search process. The final unanimous recommendation was made by an eight-member search committee appointed by the Academy Board last March.

Pérez Schulz, who has been serving as a vice-president and campus director at the Career Care Institute, accepted the Board’s June 5 invitation to serve as Andrews Academy’s next principal. He will formally begin his role on July 15, 2024.

A fourth-generation Adventist educator, Pérez Schulz holds a master’s degree in education from the University of Lethbridge, Canada. He brings almost thirty years of experience to his new role, including time spent as a high school teacher, elementary and high school vice-principal and principal, university instructor, college administrator, institutional administrator and educational administrator.

Notably, he served as educator and principal of Los Angeles Adventist Academy, the second largest Adventist K–12 academy in Chile. He also served in various educational administrative positions at Concepción Adventist Academy, Chile Adventist University and Lake Michigan College. In 2006, he was invited to serve as a faculty member in the Department of International Languages & Global Studies at Andrews University. He later served as assistant dean for the College of Arts & Sciences at Andrews, before he accepted a position with the Career Care Institute in 2019.

During the hiring process for the new position, Pérez Schulz emphasized his commitment to engaging with students, parents, teachers and the Academy community. He is dedicated to the Adventist mission and has experienced firsthand the benefits of Adventist education.

Please join the Andrews community in congratulating Rubén Pérez Schulz as he cultivates deep thinking, full living and unselfish service in his students, trusting God to lead Andrews Academy to a new level of excellence.
