Faculty & Administration

Our extended-day and extended-year schedules require our teachers and staff to make real sacrifices with regard to salary and lifestyle. We are fortunate each year to have a highly talented group of educators who are deeply committed to our students and families.

All ten members of our full-time teaching faculty have earned a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a variety of U.S. colleges and universities and seven of ten have earned their graduate degrees.

All teaching faculty administer a specific program or department as part of their day-to-day responsibilities as well. Seven of ten of our faculty also serve as coaches for our interscholastic athletic teams in three seasons each year.

For more information on teaching positions for the 2015-2016 academic year, please contact Mr. Elijah Bonde, Principal, at 619-544-9455, x234, or by e-mail at
