Andrew Zwerneman

Andrew J. Zwerneman is the founding president of Cana Academy. He earned a B.A. in history and an M.A. in Government and International Relations from the University of Notre Dame and an M.A. in Catholic Doctrine from the Pontifical Institute at St. John’s University in New York City.

In the early 1980’s Andrew worked as the New York correspondent for the National Catholic Register. In 1986 Greenlawn Press published his book In Bloody Terms: the Betrayal of the Church in Marxist Grenada. For thirty-four years Andrew has taught or consulted in classical schools. Most of his career he taught with the national group of Trinity Schools. For nineteen years he served as a headmaster, two for the public charter school, Tempe Preparatory Academy in Tempe, Arizona, and seventeen for the independent school, Trinity School at Meadow View in Falls Church, Virginia. During those seventeen years Andrew was on the management team for Trinity Schools, Inc. Through his consulting firm, The Academy Project LLC, he and his team developed the curricula and trained the faculties of Thomas MacLaren School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and Trinity Academy in Portland, Oregon. He has coached headmasters with the Great Hearts Academies and lectured for principals studying in the M.Ed. program for Administration and Supervision at Marymount University. Andrew and his wife, Jeannette, have been married for thirty-one years. During that time they have devoted themselves to helping others to learn, mainly in schools but in continuing education efforts outside of school environments as well. They continue this lifelong commitment with the establishment of Cana Academy.
