SJCA Superintendent Resigns

San Jacinto Christian Academy superintendent Randy Down is leaving SJCA after two years.

SJCA Board of Trustees president Donnie Allen released a letter this morning saying that Down turned in his resignation this month. Allen said that the school is legally barred from disclosing details of the resignation and asked parents not to spread "rumors" or "gossip."

Down replaced longtime SJCA superintendent Mark McKnight in the Fall of 2015. Down previously served as principal of Grace Christian School in Naples, Florida.
