Faculty

Competent and Caring. Our faculty is chosen for their love of life and learning, generosity of spirit, respect for the sanctity of childhood, and subject matter competence. Upholding the philosophy of Mae Carden, our well-trained and certified teachers maintain high academic standards while also encouraging students’ development of core values. With a warm, calm, lighthearted approach, our skilled teachers help students develop their powers of perception, concentration, and self-discipline while guiding them to use their innate powers of analytical thinking and individual problem solving. This entire process results in a love of learning, which leads to academic excellence and strength of character.
