“We highly commend Matt Cartier as a fellow educator, leader, and follower of Christ,” said Kurt Unruh, Valor’s Head of School. “The Valor community has been blessed by his dedication to students, and we’re confident that the families of Cherry Hills Christian will experience the same.”
Additionally, Matt is a driven, intelligent and strategic leader with excellent decision-making qualities. His ability to weigh the facts and make informed and thoughtful decisions gave high confidence to the Valor Board of Education.
Matt Cartier commented:
"As I transition from Valor to Cherry Hills Christian, I am energized and passionate about the vision to provide South Denver with a model school that provides the very best Christian Education in the nation." “I look forward to officially begin as Head of School on June 11, 2018.”

“It was apparent that Matt Cartier was the answer we had been praying for. He humbly pursues his walk with Christ, has personal knowledge of our community, a strong national presence, and a substantial commitment to excellence in education,” stated Lance Baller, member of the Board of Education. “The Board of Education is excited about the enthusiasm and experience Matt will bring to our community of dedicated students and families, and our fantastic staff.”
Cherry Hills Christian School has over 900 students offering Kindergarten through grade 5 a student to teacher ratio of 14:1, which sets the school apart from other private schools. Our Middle School focus is preparing and equipping our students for their High School experience.
