Kari Beckman developed her love of education serving as a national officer for an international organization, which is dedicated to fostering a diversity of education options for children. She then worked for several years with the Department of Education in Georgia and Arizona, leading an initiative on leadership development in young people. With this zeal for education, her love of children and her conversion* to the Catholic faith in 1993, she embarked on a life-changing road that led her to the founding of Regina Caeli Academy and a dedication to classical education in the Catholic tradition. Since its founding in 2003, she has served as RCA’s Executive Director, guiding its growth from a single entity to what is currently 14 centers in 9 states and opening our 1st international affiliation in the UK this Fall.
*Her conversion story may be read in the book “Chosen- How Christ Sent Twenty-three Surprised Converts to Replant His Vineyard“
