About NPA

Administration & Faculty

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 either earned or are currently pursuing their graduate degrees.

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

For more information on teaching positions for the 2011-2012 academic year, please contact Mr. Brendan Sullivan, Principal, at 619-544-9455, x222, or by e-mail at bsullivan@nativityprep.org.
