No matter how fine the facilities or how numerous the courses, what happens between teacher and student determines the quality of the educational experience. The Episcopal faculty are not just outstanding classroom teachers; they are also enthusiastic advisors, coaches and club sponsors. They are committed and involved in the spirit of excellence.
Episcopal's teachers are recruited with an eye toward personal and academic achievement as well as human compassion. More than sixty percent hold advanced degrees from such well-known institutions as Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, Notre Dame, the University of Michigan, William and Mary, the Sorbonne, and Duke University.
Episcopal faculty consider teaching not only an occupation but also a privilege. Teachers are allowed the freedom to be innovative within the bounds of each discipline. In addition, small classes allow them to know their students, both personally and individually. As professionals, Episcopal teachers realize it is essential to teach the information and skills necessary for college preparation, yet they also seek to create enthusiasm for the learning process within the framework of Christian values. Ultimately, Episcopal teachers are committed to molding young minds into knowledgeable, responsible, inquiring adults who will go on to achieve success in all walks of life.
