Danny S. Wright, Principal

Principal Danny S. Wright

Dr. Danny S. Wright, the principal of Harvest Hills Christian School, was born and reared in Memphis, Tennessee. Following his graduation from a Christian high school, he attended and graduated from Pensacola Christian College, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, with a major in History Education, and a Master of Science degree, with a concentration in Secondary Education. Dr. Wright later earned a Master of Divinity degree in Biblical Studies from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Bob Jones University.

Dr. Wright’s first place of service after college was in England, homeschooling a missionary pastor’s two high school children and participating in various aspects of the church ministry.

After returning from England, Dr. Wright taught full time at the Christian school he had graduated from in Memphis. He taught history, Bible, and speech courses. He also assisted in school programs, directed school plays, and prepared students for fine arts competitions. He then attended seminary to prepare for service on the mission field.

Dr. Wright married his wife, Carrie, in 2001, and they spent twelve years serving as missionaries in Cameroon. He assisted in church planting and was the administrator of a small Bible institute. He also taught many courses, including Greek, Hebrew, Church History, and studies of individual books and sections of the Bible, in that institute and several others. Carrie was involved in medical outreach as a nurse. While they were missionaries, their five children—James, twins William and Joel, Amy, and Matthew—were born, although they all ended up being born in the U.S.

During the next four years, Dr. Wright taught and helped with administrative duties at a Christian school in Martinsville, Indiana. He taught a variety of courses—English, history, biology, chemistry, Algebra I, keyboarding, and yearbook. He also helped prepare curriculum guides for the school’s accreditation.

The Wrights moved to Oklahoma City during the summer of 2017. In addition to his administrative duties, Dr. Wright also helps in the athletic program and teaches several classes, including various history and science courses.

Dr. Wright’s goal for Harvest Hills Christian School is to equip students academically for further education and for life, but even more importantly, to equip them spiritually for their Christian life and service to God. His desire for the graduates of the school is that they live out Romans 12:1-2: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
