Dr. Edward J. Spurka, Head of School

Dr. Spurka began his career in education in Pennsylvania in 1992. He earned two degrees from West Chester University, including one in Special Education.
He moved to Georgia in 1995 to begin work at South Forsyth High School, and later taught at Milton High School, where he was promoted into school administration. He then served as an administrator in progressively larger roles in Gwinnett and Fulton Counties, while also earning his doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Georgia.
As the founding principal of Cambridge High School in North Fulton County, Georgia, Dr. Spurka quickly established this new campus as one of the strongest schools in the State of Georgia. He is a four-time recipient of the Governor’s High Performance Principal award, and he was twice named as Outstanding Principal of the Year by the Georgia PTA.
Having grown up in the Catholic Church, Dr. Spurka values the spiritual development and focus on the whole child that Pinecrest Academy is able to offer to our students as one of the best private Catholic schools in the country.
