James Koser School Administrator


I began as the Head Administrator at CCA in the summer of 2015.  Prior to joining the wonderful team at CCA, I spent 9 years as a teacher, counselor and program director in alternative education.  I earned my Bachelor Degree from Shippensburg University in 2003 and then went on to earn my Master’s in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University.

I live in Carlisle with my wife, Virginia and my children, Elijah, Iriana and Alvin and love spending time with them.  We love to go camping, hiking, biking and do all kinds of outdoor activities together.

Outside of school, my hobbies include running, hiking, hunting and fishing, and try to use these experiences to explore new places.  I am also a teaching elder at our church and I love to preach the Word of God when given the opportunity.  In fact, my favorite part of being the administrator at CCA is when I am able to share God’s Word at our chapel services.

I have many favorite Bible verses and love talking about the Word of God with people and helping them to grow in their faith.  One verse I frequently read is Hebrews 12:2, “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.”
