As Apple’s vice president of Education, John Couch has been responsible for driving Apple’s renewed success in the education market. He has over forty years experience as a computer scientist, executive and advocate for technology in education. In 1985, he turned his focus to education at the Santa Fe Christian School where he created a business plan for the debt-laden private school into one of the first examples of how the creative use of technology can revolutionize learning in the classroom. Under his leadership as Chairman of the Board, the school’s annual losses were annulled and the student body grew from 150 to 1000. The school’s rented facilities were expanded via the purchase of the 17-acre site, offering a range of world-class resources, including a fiber optic network of Macintosh computers.
