Welcome to Academy High School. My name is Joe Craig, I am the Assistant Superintendent at Academy ISD. This is my 13th year at Academy and have served as HS Assistant Principal (2001-2004), HS Principal (2004-2008), and in my current role since 2008. As the Assistant Superintendent, I have many areas that I am in charge of: Student Services (Food Service, Transportation), Maintenance, Custodial Services, in addition to being the district's Homeless Liaison, 504 Coordinator, and GT Coordinator.

My wife, Michele, is also an educator. She works at ESC 12 in Waco and is the Region 12 as the Special Education specialist for VI students (Visual Impairment). We have 2 sons that attend Academy Schools - Zach (9th grade) and Jaxon (4th).

Prior to Academy, I worked as a teacher / coach in Victoria ISD from 1996-2001. Prior to Victoria, I spent 5 years as an assistant basketball coach at the University of Alaska-Anchorage. I graduated high school in Marble Falls and went to college at Central Texas College in Killeen for 2 years and earned my bachelors degree from Southwest Texas State (now Texas State).
