Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Robert Wingate

It is with great excitement any joy that I introduce myself as the newly appointed assistant principal at Atlanta College and Career Academy! It is truly an honor to join a school community where success is the only option.

I attended Barber-Scotia College (HBCU) where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration/English. In an effort to pursue a teaching career, I attended The University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I earned dual teacher certification in middle school Language Arts (6-8) and high school English (9-12). I continued my education earning a Bachelor and Master of Arts degree in Theology from Charlotte Life Christian University. After a successful teaching career in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, I was accepted into the School Executive Leadership Academy at Queens University of Charlotte where I received my K-12 North Carolina Principal certification. I continued to further my education by attending Wingate University where I received my Educational Specialist Degree (Ed. S) and North Carolina Superintendent license.  I went on to receive my Doctorate in Educational Leadership (Ed. D) from Wingate University.

This school year will start my 19th year in public education where I have served as an ISS Assistant, seven years as a middle and high school English teacher, three years as a Dean of Students, seven years as an Assistant Principal both on the middle and high school level, and most recently served as a high school principal.

I am a firm believer that every child can learn at high levels regardless of their situation or circumstance, and it is my goal to ensure that our scholars continue to receive a quality education in a safe environment conducive to learning, where students can learn, and teachers can teach. I am committed to working in partnership with our families, staff, and community to support our children in reaching their maximum potential.

I look forward to our first school year together learning and growing with our amazing scholars, dedicated staff, supportive parents and community!!


With ACCA Pride,

Dr. Robert J. Wingate, Ed. D
