Faculty & staff

Meet our Faculty and Staff

The faculty of Saint John’s Prep inspire, mentor, and guide students throughout their academic journey. In the classroom, our teachers encourage students to develop critical thinking skills, challenge them with complex problems and foster their  communication skills. Our small class sizes mean teachers have time to work individually with students to support and mentor them with their studies.

81% of Saint John’s Prep faculty hold at least one Master’s Degree

Small class sizes, the faculty’s dedication, and a low student‐to‐teacher ratio all foster an atmosphere of personal attention for every student.

"My child loves it. Found a place that celebrates faith, uniqueness, talent and intellect."
Anne, parent
"My kids have thrived at this school and have been afforded amazing opportunities to grow, not only as students, but also as human beings. The environment encourages individuality, supports different cultures and backgrounds, and prepares its students for future success by offering a real-life sampling of what they will encounter in college and beyond."
Jennifer, parent
"We sent our boys to prep because of its academic reputation and were more than satisfied with how Prep prepared them for life! It was an honor and privilege to send our sons to Prep! The investment by our family was worth every dime!"
Tom, parent
