Hello! My name is Justin Browning and I am excited to be your Principal at JCAC starting with the 2019/20 school year. Although I am new to the Jefferson City Schools, I have over 10 years experience as an educator, several as an Assistant Principal and Director of Activities and Athletics at both Linn High/Middle School and Battle High School in Columbia, MO. Coming to JCAC feels like coming home. I have spent my entire educational career advocating for and creating an equitable environment where all students, regardless of their backgrounds, can be academically and socially successful. My educational background includes a Bachelors from the University of Tennessee, a Masters in Teaching from Missouri Baptist University, and Educational Specialists from the University of Missouri, and I am currently in the final stages of completing an Educational Doctorate from the University of Missouri. I am married with two amazing kids, and when time allows, we enjoy taking long road trips to state and national parks through the United States (and sometimes Canada).
