Faculty & Staff

The key to West Sound Academy’s success in fulfilling its mission to be a college preparatory school that graduates accomplished, creative, intellectually curious young adults prepared to contribute responsibly to the world are the faculty.  The West Sound criteria for selection of teachers includes far more than just educational and work credentials.

We choose teachers for their human qualities:  depth of life experience, professional background, skill in the tools of communication, international exposure, and more than anything else their passion to teach young people.

With our teachers, students acquire skills through inquiry, enjoying direct experiences with curriculum while also finding the support for new interests and individual passions.  As part of a close-knit community, students develop strong, respectful relationships with teachers and, together, forge a love for life-long learning.
