Meet our Principal and Staff

Kristin E. White, Ed.S.

As Principal of Quest Leadership Academy I am thrilled to be working with all students, staff, and families in my second year as your school leader. I come to Quest with over 15 years of experience, from traditional and public charter classrooms and administrative offices all over the upstate of South Carolina! Having worked in many traditional and public charter schools, with charter schools being my favorite places, working with the mission and vision here at Quest is very exciting for me! I look forward to continuing to work alongside the families, staff, and community to continue to make Quest a wonderful place for everyone to learn, grow, and lead!

When I am not working hard at school, I enjoy time with my son Brayden(16), my husband Daniel, our dog Bear and cat Zooey. I love to create art, eat at fun places, cook, and visit the gym when I can!

Feel free to contact me at any time at kwhite@questleadershipacademy.org or 864-277-7575 

Kristin E. White, Principal
