Our faculty is an outstanding group of Christian Brothers and lay men and women. Forty one of our 63 faculty hold advanced degrees in their teaching fields. Twelve are graduates of Saint Paul’s. While fifteen faculty members have completed various advance Lasallian programs of study, all of our teachers and staff is trained in the ideals of our Founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle in an effort to continue the rich Lasallian teaching tradition of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Our instructors and support staff are committed to providing relevant, rigorous and value centered instruction to every student entrusted to their care.
