Jana and her husband, Troy, live in McLeod, ND, where they have parented their 7 children, whom Jana homeschooled for 20 years. Troy runs a Vision Fencing but is also transitioning into full-time ministry through Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The Solhjems are members of Eagle Valley EFC in Christine. Jana enjoys spending time with her kids and grandkids, traveling with her husband, cooking, and corgis!
Prior to serving the Capstone community, Jana earned degrees in social work and child development and served as a guardian ad litem for the juvenile courts. She and Troy also facilitate a chapter of While We’re Waiting, a ministry to grieving parents.
Jana is our admissions counselor and North Campus office manager. She serves as our admissions concierge for parents, helping to make the admissions process as smooth as possible. She supports the rest of the administrative team in various roles as needed.
She is most excited about the rich Christian environment that Capstone offers, with a focus on the love of learning and community. Her prayer is that families and students join this community and feel welcomed and loved as they pursue an education that glorifies God in every subject. Her youngest son, Eli, is a 6th grade student at Capstone.
