Meighan Keely has worked as an educator at Sunrise Christian Academy since 2004. In 2015 she took the role of Principal for the junior and senior high school (6th -12th grades). Mrs. Keely serves the international students at Sunrise as the designated school official, processing paperwork for admission to the United States. She is also the college advisor and assists all students in applying to colleges and making sure each student completes the appropriate courses for graduation. As a teacher, she has taught a variety of math and science classes over the past 14 years including 6th grade math, Algebra, Earth/Space Science, and Physics. She considers serving the school as an administrator a privilege but her first calling and love is the classroom. She continues to teach 2 classes, Trigonometry and College Algebra/Trigonometry.
Mrs. Keely's philosophy of education is founded on a mutual understanding, respect, and trust between teachers and students as fellow image bearers of our creator God. It is the responsibility of teachers to foster that relationship by providing instruction that seeks to meet the needs of each learner in the classroom while also requiring a high level of work ethic. It is her prayer that each student will graduate from Sunrise Christian Academy with a passion to be a Godly positive and effective influence in his or her family, community and vocation. To have graduates live out the Core Values embedded in their learning at Sunrise Christian Academy, Belief, Truth, Service and Love would be the epitome of success.
Mrs. Keely graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Wichita State University in 1991. In 2003, she went back to Wichita State to take education classes to begin a teaching career. She also has a Masters in Education from Covenant College.
Mrs. Keely has been married to Loren for 30 years and they have 3 children: Jessica, Sarah, and Jacob. All three children attended and graduated from Sunrise Christian Academy.
