Letter from Head of School

Alan MilaDear Christ the King Faculty and Parents,

It is with great excitement I write to you as Head of School of Christ the King School. I am truly honored to serve in this role, having been a part of the Christ the King parish for many years. Christ the King School is a special place with a tremendous reputation throughout the Diocese, and my goal is to work with each of you as a partner in your child’s formation and education.

I, like so many others in Nashville, am a transplant to Tennessee, originally from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. I came to Nashville as a teacher in the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) program at the University of Notre Dame. What started as a two-year placement at Pope John Paul II High School teaching mathematics evolved into a twelve-year stay. I taught mathematics, coached men’s and women’s soccer, and served as Athletic Director and Director of Student Activities during my tenure. I left JPII for Saint Henry School where I was the Assistant Principal for four years.

After my first year as Head of School in 2021-2022 and working with the faculty,  staff, parents and students, I have gotten a better understanding of our community and the unique needs of and opportunities at our great school. I believe all children deserve a relevant and rigorous education and experiences that stretch the boundaries of their learning. I will continue to build strong relationships with our parents, teachers, and those in the broader parish community to bring these experiences to life for our students.

Collaboratively, we can achieve our school goals and to propel Christ the King into its next phase.

Sincerely in Christ,
Alan Mila Signature
