Join us in welcoming Dr. Tim Wiens as our new MPCS Headmaster. Dr. Wiens has served as a teacher, advisor, coach, and school administrator for the past 25 years in K-12 and postsecondary education settings. His formative experiences as an educator began in the Minneapolis—Saint Paul metropolitan area. There he served in several highly regarded school programs where his roles included, but were not limited to, coach, faculty member, class advisor, Advance Placement program coordinator, dean of students, and assistant principal. Following these experiences, Dr. Wiens became the first headmaster of Boston Trinity Academy. A highly diverse college preparatory school serving middle and high school learners in the Boston area, Dr. Wiens developed the school’s first comprehensive programs in the areas of mission, academics, co-curricular activities, finance, and strategic planning. During Dr. Wiens’s leadership tenure, students from Boston Trinity Academy matriculated to the nation’s most respected colleges and universities.
From Boston Trinity Academy, Dr. Wiens transitioned to Wheaton College where he served in the roles of assistant professor, secondary education coordinator, and visiting scholar. While at Wheaton, Dr. Wiens also co-founded and became the executive director of the Council on Educational Standards and Accountability (CESA), an organization that exists to support Christian schools aspiring to superlative academic standards and practices. Currently, Dr. Wiens serves as the head of school at Delaware County Christian School located in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania. He also chairs and facilitates the Peabody Professional Institute for Independent School Leadership at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College.
In discussing his philosophy of Christian school education, Dr. Wiens notes “it is the role of the Christian school to join with the family, church, and community and to provide young people with a superior education, preparing the total person—mind, body, and spirit—for life and service in a diverse and changing world.”
Dr. Wiens earned his doctorate from St. Mary’s University. He is a frequent speaker and participant at education conferences, and has authored numerous professional publications. Dr. Katie Wiens, his spouse, holds a doctorate from Boston University and currently serves as a research scholar at the University of Virginia and directs the Schools for Applied and Innovative Learning at Delaware County Christian School.
