Dr. Brian Merritt

Hello and welcome!

My name is Brian Merritt and it is an honor and blessing for me to serve as the assistant principal of EXCEL Academy. I am excited to work with the faculty, staff, parents, and students this year.

I believe that the purpose of education is to be able to succeed in whatever it is you want to do in life.

I believe that every person is unique and I also believe that every student can Excel!

I believe that the purpose of education is not only to learn facts for whatever job you will have in the future but also to open your mind to some of the other ways of thinking that are in the world.

Education is not about how many facts you can learn, but how you use your knowledge to solve real-world problems. 

Here at Excel, we operate under the core values of:

      Cultivate – Your mind

      Grow – As a person each day

      Harvest- Before the reward, there must be labor.


I look forward to working with each of you!


Brian H. Merritt, Ed.S.
