Dr. Jack Preus is the National Director of Soaring Education Services. He is an educational leader with a passion for engaging teachers, school leaders, and ministries in advancing Christian education through innovation and creating sustainable models. Jack strives to leverage creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit to bring the Gospel to students in communities who do not currently have access to faith-based schools.
Committed to this mission, he began his career as a teacher, coach, and administrator serving students at Orange Lutheran High School in Orange, CA, while finishing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership at UCLA. In 2014, he joined Open Sky Education as a National Director. He has since supported the team to advance its mission nationally by growing its school networks (HOPE Christian Schools and EAGLE College Prep public charter schools) and its Christian wraparound programs (Compass Educational Programs).
In 2021, Jack founded Soaring Education Services, a division of Open Sky Education.
In addition to his work at Open Sky Education, he also works to advance this mission for children by participating in various national speaking engagements and committees.
