Mrs. Lori Baker
Academic Advisor & Bursar
I graduated from Liberty University, summa cum laude, with a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies, with cognates in education and business and a minor in writing. I am currently a graduate student at Liberty University, as I am pursuing my master's degree in professional writing. I also graduated from St. John's School of Business in 1985. I have worked in various capacities in a variety of industries over the years. That said, my favorite position, prior to joining CCS, was working as the bursar and assistant to the administrator at Baptist Village Christian Academy in East Longmeadow from 2005 until the school closed in 2008. It was there that I felt a distinct calling to work in Christian education. Therefore, I feel very blessed to have joined the CCS family in 2014.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart since 1982. We have three incredible children – a married daughter, Chelsea Dancy, who is employed as a teacher at CCS; a married son who works as a college baseball coach; and another son who attends and is a baseball player at Dallas Baptist University. I am also a grandma to a sweet little girl and a handsome little guy! I am also a daylily enthusiast. I currently grow over one hundred different varieties of daylilies, which I love to share! I also love reading, spending time with family, and watching my sons play baseball.
I have always loved learning and I love God’s truth. Accordingly, I believe working at a Christian school is my ideal vocation. Prior to coming to CCS in 2014, I prayed for the opportunity to work in Christian education once again. Obviously, God answered my prayer and I am so grateful. I love CCS’s goal of partnering with parents in educating and discipling children for God’s ultimate glory.
Colossians 2:2-3: "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.“
