Our Principal

Interim Principal

We are very excited to have Mrs. Bethany Merkling lead our school while we search for the perfect, permanent Principal for World Compass Academy. Bethany holds a Professional Teaching License and Principal License in the state of Colorado. This Fall she will begin her eleventh year in education. She has been a member of World Compass administration for the past two years, most recently serving as our Director of Middle School. Prior to her work at World Compass, she taught in Utah, France, and in Douglas County.

Mrs. Merkling is the founder of World Compass Academy, creating the initial vision for the school, writing much of the original charter, serving as the founding board president, and leading the amazing team who opened the school. She is well-versed in the World Compass curriculum, having taught
using Core Knowledge, FOSS, Guided Reading, and Step Up to Writing.
She spends her free time running and spending time with her three little
boys and husband.
