Our Head of School

Superintendent Robert Bignell

Kati Melton has been in the field of education for nearly 20 years. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Elementary Education from the University of Colorado. Kati began her career as a third-grade teacher in Cherry Creek School District and was honored to be selected as one of eight teachers in the district to join a leadership cohort earning her Master’s Degree in Education Leadership from the University of Northern Colorado along with her Colorado Principal license. Upon completion of her graduate program, Kati became an administrator in Cherry Creek School District where she served for several years. Shortly thereafter, God clearly called Kati into Christian education as the Principal at Denver Christian.

Kati joined the Cherry Hills Christian community in 2014 and has had the unique opportunity to serve in a variety of roles at CHC including Assistant Principal, Principal, and Dean of Faculty. Kati was also on the Interim Executive Team at which time she participated in the Leadership University program through the Association of Christian Schools International and earned a Head of School Endorsement.

Kati is committed to equipping the next generation of students to grow in depth and understanding in their relationship with Christ and to live as God’s beloved children with unique strengths, skills and callings. She is passionate about leading and inspiring teachers and creating a positive school culture where all students thrive in a dynamic academic environment. Serving others is at the heart of Cherry Hills Christian and Kati finds immense joy in fulfilling this mission!

She and her husband, Brandon, have two daughters who both attend Cherry Hills Christian. Kati loves spending time with her family enjoying everything Colorado has to offer, from skiing in the winter to hiking, biking and camping in the summer.
