ACCION Academy School Administration

Dr. Victor Frias- Principal


As the Principal I strongly believe our children need to be exposed to rich, rewarding learning opportunities and at times be empowered to overcome challenging new experiences. In the last twenty-two years I have had the privilege to experience a number of milestones. These include teaching, grade adviser, department coordinator, Assistant Principal, Pupil Personnel services and currently celebrate my 6th year as school principal. This year I am joined by Assistant Principal Karen Henry and a highly effective staff at ACCION Academy.

Karen Henry- Assistant Principal


As the Assistant Principal of ACCION Academy, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to serve as a member of this great school community.  ACCION Academy has a rich history of academic and cultural excellence.  This is a result of the strong collaborations and partnerships between administrators, teachers, parents and community based organizations that provide a diversity of experiences for your children.   Along with the staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of academic and cultural excellence established at ACCION Academy. It is my hope to continue to foster and build upon the highest quality of instruction through collaboration with the school leadership team, parent teacher association, staff and students.
