Meet our Board of Directors and administrators, a team passionate about classical Christian education because they've seen it bear good fruit in their own lives and the lives of their children.

Katie Montoya

Board of Directors, 

Head of School

Katie is a lifelong Christian and second-generation homeschooling mom of four boys.  After a rigorous and robust education through a collaborative program in her hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Katie graduated summa cum laude from Patrick Henry College with a degree in Government (Political Theory).  She went on to earn her law degree from the University of Virginia where she edited the Virginia Law Review and later served as a law clerk to two federal appellate judges before practicing appellate and constitutional law at a major litigation firm in Washington, D.C.

All the while, however, and thanks especially to her stellar and devoted professors at Patrick Henry, the Lord was growing in Katie a passion for classical Christian education as the best means of training the next generation to love learning, think carefully, and speak winsomely to the glory of God.  She and her husband Mike enrolled their oldest son at a classical, Christian, collaborative school in Virginia for his kindergarten year—and that year set the standard for how they wanted to educate each of their sons. 

When God moved their family to Lenexa the next year and there wasn’t a similar school nearby, the Lord started prompting Katie to leave legal practice and trust Him in this new and exciting adventure called Knox Classical School.  And the entire Montoya family couldn’t be more thrilled. 

Dottie Morgan

Board of Directors

Despite receiving a purportedly phenomenal high school and college education (B.S. in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), Dottie wanted more for her own kids.  After discovering the classical Christian model, she and her husband David have spent the last 15 years homeschooling. 

When embarking on this project, she envisioned creating a STEM powerhouse.  It didn’t take long before use of the Tapestry of Grace curriculum changed her top priority to character formation through history and literature analysis.  The older Morgan children have homeschooled through high school: the oldest attends a classical Christian college and the middle child is a junior in high school.  The youngest is an eighth grader at Whitefield Academy in KCMO, where Dottie has been a substitute teacher for four years. 

Chris Oswald

Board of Directors

Chris and his wife Angela have been married for 28 years and are grateful to have their three adult children whom they classically educated.  Chris is the senior pastor at Providence Community Church and is a voracious reader on a wide range of subjects, including classical Christian education.  

When he gets a moment to himself, Chris loves listening to “Dad Rock” on his vintage hi-fi stereo.
