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 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 many have earned their graduate degrees.

For more information on teaching positions, please contact Mr. Elijah Bonde, Principal, at 619-544-9455, or by e-mail at
