Our faculty is highly qualified and certified, with more than 200 years combined teaching experience. Nine instructors have master’s degrees and others are in the process of obtaining their master’s degree. Faculty members are committed to helping students take full advantage of their opportunities and tailor their instruction techniques to a variety of learning styles.

Here’s what our teachers have to say:

  • “Students who arrive here only hoping to get their high school diplomas walk away with an incredible sense of achievement and the understanding that they are capable of doing so much more in their lives.”
  • “I am committed to helping these students take full advantage of their opportunities. I try to encourage them to think positively and to realize that success is possible if they apply themselves.”
  • “The success on their faces at graduation is what really makes it all worthwhile. I feel lucky to be a part of it.”
