Our People

Who are our people? Westminster has been blessed with some of the best and brightest faculty. All teachers have a love for the Lord, their students, their subject, and bring Christ into the classroom with enthusiasm. Our faculty are life-long learners and have over 200 years of combined classical Christian education experience.

With 300 graduates since 2000, our alumni have gone on to attend colleges and universities around the world, including Oxford and Columbia University.

Our Vision for Faculty

We aim to cultivate these same qualities in our faculty and to see them well paid so that they may make a career at Westminster Academy. We desire them to be professional and diligent in their work, gifted in teaching, loving their students, loving their subjects, and most importantly, loving the Lord in front of their students. We desire that they clearly understand classical education, how it is implemented in their classrooms, and how their work fits into the whole of the trivium; that they possess a lifelong hunger to learn and grow; and that they have opportunity to grow in their gifts and skills and to be refreshed and renewed. We desire to see them coach and mentor new staff. We desire faculty to serve as academic coaches to students and to identify, nurture, and develop the intellectual, physical, and spiritual gifts of students. We look to see them continue to mature in Christ, to participate joyfully in Christian community through the local church, and to grow in their knowledge of God and the Scriptures.
