Fletcher Academy is attracting students—despite its no-phones rule. Christopher Carey, self-proclaimed treehugger and outdoorsman, serves as president and CEO of Fletcher Academy Ministries, Inc. He worked in both the healthcare and education fields at Valley View University, Southern Adventist University, and Centura Health before transitioning to his current role in 2020. In this interview, he talks about the many facets of the sprawling, 600-acre North Carolina campus—which includes a retirement village, an organic farm, an elementary school, a community gym and pool, and the academy—and the ways this ministry is working to make a difference in its community.
