Mr. Tim Oditt joined Ascension Academy in the summer of 2020 as the Head of School. He and his family are thrilled to become a part of the Ascension Academy community and for the chance to be back in west Texas after serving as the Head of School at Grand River Academy in northeast Ohio.

Mr. Oditt’s career in independent school education began at the Canterbury Episcopal School in Dallas where he served as a basketball coach. From there, he moved across the country to Virginia where he joined Hargrave Military Academy. While at Hargrave, Mr. Oditt taught World History, U.S. History, U.S. Government, served as a Student Advisor, worked in Residential Life and coached the varsity basketball team for eight years. His time in the classroom ended and Mr. Oditt moved into administration as an Athletic Director for four years and finally as the Assistant Head of School for four years.

Tim has been married for over 20 years to Jennifer, who is a fellow educator. They have two children, Julianna, who is attending Miami (OH) University and Miles, who is attending Ascension Academy as a 9th grader.
