Candeo Schools has appointed administrative fellow, Koren Lane, Head of School for Candeo Schools North Scottsdale campus.

Ms. Lane brings 20 years of experience as a teacher, administrator, and executive-level corporate professional. Her appointment follows the announcement that the tuition-free Candeo Schools is opening its second Valley location in August 2020, according to a press release.

“I am delighted to join the Candeo family and honored to take the reigns as the Candeo North Scottsdale Head of School as we carry on our tradition of growing brilliance, while sharing the beauty and rich knowledge of a classical liberal arts education,” said Ms. Lane in a prepared statement.

Candeo Schools North Scottsdale will educate students from kindergarten through eighth grade with a classical education approach and the nationally-recognized core knowledge curriculum to broaden, enrich, and enliven the student academic experience, the release said.

“Ms. Lane was the obvious choice,” said Dr. Stephanie Musser, founder and CEO of Candeo Schools, in a prepared statement.

“Her vast experience as a highly qualified teacher and seasoned administrator combined with six years of executive-level corporate experience gives her the skills to replicate our program with fidelity and serve the needs of the new community.”
