Our School Board

Judith Vega, President
I have been principal of Bay Ridge Christian Academy for the last 15 years. I’ve learned so much throughout these years and it has truly been a blessing to serve countless families and children.

This year marks my twenty fifth year in education. As a teacher and now in my capacity as an administrator I have been privileged to be part of many students lives, encouraging them to continue to strive and give their best. I cherish every moment I’ve had to impart in the lives of children and their families, and I pray for the strength to continue to do so.

I have varied experience as a teacher and school leader. For the first ten years of my career I served at the elementary school level, teaching a variety of grades and content areas. My passion has always been to develop positive relationships with everyone within our school community, encourage students to reach their full potential, and support teachers and staff so they maximize their efforts. As I look into the future, I pray that God will continue to equip me with much wisdom and grace as we continue impacting the lives of students who are our future leaders.
