Lindsey Kilgannon

Executive Director & Co-Owner

In partnership with an amazing group of people, I will be serving as the Executive Director of Golden Path Academy. You will see me throughout the week at both GPA locations.

I have a passion for children and their families. I have worked in the education field for 20+ years. I earned an associate’s degree in early childhood development and a bachelor’s degree in psychology.  I also hold many certifications ranging from behavior management to the importance of play.  I began my career in New York as a pre-kindergarten teacher, but found a passion for special education and behavior management. This passion led me to work as a Head Start family case worker. I was fortunate to begin working as an Early Intervention Service Coordinator for my county school district. My role was to support families and children with special needs, and coordinate all intended services.

In 2008 I moved to Virginia, and quickly fell in love with the community and the preschool programs. I was a program director for 7 years and served as the executive director for the largest Christian preschool program in Northern Virginia. Knowing that God has an all-trusting plan, in 2017 I began the journey to develop Golden Path Academy. Alongside an incredible team, I am excited to provide and co-own the very first, stand-alone, Christian early childhood academy.

I’m also a mom of six boys (where I have probably gained the most experience) and a wife of an elementary PE teacher. I believe in teaching the whole child while simultaneously building a safe, loving  community. The preschool years are crucial to our character development and I’m honored to be a part of that. Christ is at the center of my life and I’m all trusting in His plan. During my free time, I’m a fitness enthusiast and enjoy teaching cycle. I love to be positive and to bring joy into other people’s lives. I’m looking forward to getting to know you while partnering in the development of your child’s early learning years.
