Our teachers, coming from varied backgrounds and experiences, are committed to imparting specialized academic knowledge to their students. The community spirit at St. John’s allows teachers to know their students as individuals both inside and outside of the classroom. Our student to teacher ratio is approximately 16:1. In this setting, students learn in an atmosphere of close and caring academic instruction and leadership.
Faculty members at St. John’s are required to possess a Master’s Degree, have New York State Teacher Certification, and continue on in the educational journey by participating in post-Master’s work, doctoral studies, conferences and workshops.
Teachers and administrators at St. John’s recognize the impact they have on the young people they meet and work with each day. The work of service and justice is not just for Campus Ministry but for all who are part of this community. More than educators of the minds, teachers at St. John’s also nourish the soul. They work to be present to students before and after school, by moderating clubs and coaching and participating in various retreat and social experiences.
Our faculty also serve as a witness to what it is to live a good, Christian life by who they are and what they do inside and outside of the classroom. Faculty members include Sisters of St. Francis, Sisters of St. Dominic and lay women and men.
Every teacher who works at St. John’s knows the important dual role they play – to not only encourage thought but to empower students to act for the good of others and the world in which they live!
