Jesse Burgess - High School Principal

Jesse Burgess

Jesse Burgess  High School Principal

High School Principal

Welcome Jesse Burgess, high school principal, to Heritage Christian School. Jesse joined the Heritage team after serving as the high school principal at Southmont High School in Crawfordsville, IN. He has 20 years of experience with the last 10 serving in school administration. Jesse earned his bachelor’s degree in political science and history and holds master’s degrees in teaching and educational leadership.

“I first learned about Heritage about 13 years ago when some friends had children who were attending and they were very complimentary of their experience,” said Jesse. When he saw the opening for a new high school principal, Jesse felt the Lord place a calling on his heart to apply. “I am most excited about the opportunity to continue my career at a school where Christ is the center of everything that we do.” Jesse intends to support Heritage students, staff, and families in their quest to live out the school’s mission of glorifying God, discipling students, and pursuing academic excellence.

Outside of his work, Jesse, along with his wife, Jenna, and their three children, Caleb, Cora, and Knox, loves traveling throughout the U.S. While in college, he had the unique opportunity to travel to Greece and climb Mt. Olympus! Jesse is also an avid reader and is inspired by reading the biographies of Christians who have acted in boldness to proclaim the Word of God.
