Carla Fisher – Head of Lower School

Carla Fisher is the Head of Lower School at Coastal Preparatory Academy. Mrs. Fisher earned a bachelor of arts in elementary education from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, a master’s in teaching and learning from Nova Southeastern University, and a master’s in executive leadership from Gardner-Webb University.

She has served 19 years in the field of education and believes that providing a solid foundation for success includes creating a positive atmosphere, generating collaborative partnerships, and cultivating an intentional environment. Her combined experience in charter schools as a teacher and administrator has equipped her to provide our school, and your volunteer Board of Directors the expertise to ensure our teachers and students reach their highest potential.

“The choice to lead comes with a great responsibility to provide others with purpose, directions, and desire to carry out the vision of an organization. I believe the single most important trait of leadership is to lead by example. I value authenticity, integrity, respect, and making a difference.”

Mrs. Fisher and her husband have three adult children and enjoy spending as much time as they can together.
