JUPITER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL –– Jupiter Christian has recently had a massive change in staff, one of whom happens to be the new High School Dean, Mr. Dickens.

Mr. Dickens grew up in St. Augustine and has loved sports since a very young age. Says Dickens, “I’ve loved football for as long as I can remember. When I was 5, I wasn’t watching cartoons; I was watching SportsCenter.” Mr. Dickens has been an educator for 7 years, teaching at Conniston Middle School, The King’s Academy, and now JCS. As well as teaching, he has coached football for 9 years at Dwyer, TKA, and JCS.

When Mr. Dickens first came to Jupiter Christian, he said that his first impression was that the school is full of those who love the Lord. For Mr. Dickens, the highlight of this year so far has been winning the first football game, and he looks forward to watching all the athletic competitions he can. Mr. Dickens has already shown his enthusiasm at the Varsity Volleyball games by encouraging the student section to be rowdy and supportive of our Lady Eagles.

When asked what the student body could do better, Mr. Dickens said, “Tuck your shirts in, and get more involved in student led Bible studies.” Dean Dickens attends First Presbyterian in North Palm Beach, and his favorite book of the Bible is James because, “It is very hard-hitting and straight to the point. It challenges me every time I read it.”

Mr. Dickens enjoys hobbies such as playing Pickleball, Spike Ball, and collecting Vinyl records. His ideal vacation (which he has already gone on) would be Greece or Barcelona, where he enjoyed relaxing and experiencing the culture and style.

This year will have a lot of opportunities for growth throughout the school, and Mr. Dickens along with the rest of the administration is looking forward to it. They are thankful for the student body’s support and can’t wait to see what the new year holds in store for Jupiter Christian.
