Randall Adams Biography
Mr. Adams brings a wealth of experience to the position of President of Servite High School. Adams has spent more than twenty-five years serving in a wide range of leadership positions in Catholic educational institutions around the country. Most recently, Mr. Adams completed a two-year assignment as interim president of Academy of Notre Dame, an all-girls intermediate and secondary Catholic school in Massachusetts. Prior to that, Mr. Adams served as head of school for St. Anne’s in Laguna Niguel, successfully guiding the institution through an important growth phase.
Adams earned both his Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and Master of Educational Administration from California State University San Bernardino. Upon graduation, he served twelve years as an aircraft maintenance specialist in the U.S. Air Force, ultimately retiring to pursue his passion for Catholic education. That passion brought Adams to Aquinas High School in San Bernardino where across a sixteen-year period he served as a teacher, coach, assistant principal and then principal. Recognizing the unique skills of this rising star, the Diocese of San Bernardino recruited Adams to serve as associate superintendent of schools. However, it wasn’t long before Adams’ passion for hands-on problem-solving in a teaching environment landed him in Orange County as head of school for the then newly formed St. Anne’s Catholic Elementary and Middle School in Laguna Niguel.
Adams has been married to his wife Debbie for thirty-nine years, and they have three children and six grandchildren. He loves to play guitar, surf and travel.
