Staff and Administration

Lysa Hagan
Lysa Hagan - CEO / Principal
Learning can be one of the most enjoyable experiences in life, it is all in how it is presented. Lysa Hagan has spent the past 30 years refining this concept with children and teachers. In 2008, alongside SFA administrators and Dr. Janice Pattillo, Lysa had the pleasure of establishing the Stephen F. Austin State University Charter School, where she has remained as CEO/ Principal. Her passion grew to new heights through the success of educating the whole child, with a focus on cognitive, social, and emotional development.
Lysa's educational background includes a Master of Education and Bachelor of Science in Education from Stephen F. Austin State University, where she continues to provide instruction for pre-service teachers who work within the SFA Charter School.
The SFA Charter School community truly believes the task at hand is to prepare students to be leaders in careers that do not even exist today. Children must be thinkers!

I graduated from SFASU in December 2009. I began my career at SFA Charter School in January 2010. My husband, Johnny, is the head baseball coach at SFA. We have a son. We love being part of the Nacogdoches community as well as the SFA community. Every day I am so excited about the learning that takes place in the school.
