Holly Andrade

Principal of LiFT Academy

I am the youngest of 3 children and my mom and dad raised us in the mountains of New York State. My husband, Ed, and I moved our family here in 1998. We have been married for over 30 years and we have 5 kids that are all in their 20's. I received a BA from Grove City College in Grove City, PA in 1986 and a Masters Degree in Educational Administration from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 1994. I worked on my Masters while working for FUS in the Student Life Department. I was the Assistant Dean of Women and also a Residence Hall Director. In my spare time I enjoy getting out in nature. I love to hike, kayak and sail. I homeschooled my children for 6 years before returning to classroom teaching in 2009. The adventure of launching LiFT Academy has been nothing short of astounding!! I feel very blessed and privileged to be a part of the vision and mission of our school!
