Peter Knecht

Biography

Peter Knecht is the father of four boys and a long awaited little princess. His oldest is now serving a mission in Tijuana, while the four youngest spend the majority of their time split between school, soccer, and working on the family “homestead.” He loves the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the rare opportunity he has to help American Heritage School develop tools and resources to help LDS families connect the gospel with strong and engaging academics. He is the founding developer and current Director of the Family School curriculum, which is the flagship product of American Heritage School’s worldwide outreach, which now serves over 10,000 children in over 60 countries around the world. Connecting the spiritual with the secular is a philosophy that is central to the school’s mission and teaching methods refined over nearly 50 years. Peter counts his blessings each day he gets to support that mission in his profession.
