An Australian by birth, Rod Meadth came to Providence after serving as secondary principal at Quisqueya Christian School in Haiti. He has served Providence as dean of students, as the founding director of the Providence Engineering Academy, and is now the principal of the Middle and Upper Schools.
Mr. Meadth enjoys bringing innovative solutions to the world’s problems, encouraging his students to do likewise. If he’s not in his garage building the latest Engineering Academy invention, you’ll find him and his wife, Brittany, out exploring Santa Barbara trails, bike paths, and beaches with their four sons, all Providence Lower School students.
His favorite Providence tradition is the annual spiritual retreat at the start of the year.
