Jeremiah Schmiege

Principal & Middle School Teacher

Jeremiah has been the principal at Sola Fide Academy since 2009. Before serving here, he was an English teacher and missionary in East Asia. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from Martin Luther College and a Master of Arts in Education from Wisconsin Lutheran College.

In his spare time, you can find him hiking on the Appalachian Trail or other trails in North Georgia. He also loves woodworking.

One of Jeremiah's favorite Sola Fide memories was the "Alice in Wonderland" musical that the eighth grade class wrote for the school's 2016 spring musical.

Jeremiah loves how Sola Fide enables him to get to know students and families on a personal basis. For him, it doubles the joy of sharing the love of  Jesus.
