Principal Conner

My name is Edward Conner and I am thrilled to be the educational leader at the district’s only early college model high school, DeKalb Early College Academy [DECA].  Taking first generation college goers and under-represented populations to higher education and preparing them for college level work in half the time is a moral mission that I enjoy and take very seriously. 

DECA is great, but could be better.  I look forward to taking this journey with you.

It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I return to DeKalb Early College Academy.  I am truly honored to continue my work with the students, parents, faculty and staff of DECA.  I am confident that we will continue to work as a team to advance our students, and provide them with a rigorous and enriching school experience.

I am extremely proud to be an Assistant Principal at DeKalb Early College Academy where teaching and learning are the top priorities. DECA is home to such a diverse group of learners and educators who strive to give their absolute best. I look forward to building a strong partnership between school, home, and the community to help students grow and achieve as learners.
