Faculty & Staff

Our students have the opportunity to learn alongside passionate and dedicated educators from a wide variety of backgrounds. We are all educators: whether we have dedicated years of higher education to our disciplines, have lived on Eleuthera our entire life, are conducting scientific research at the Cape Eleuthera Institute, or are testing the waters of the educational profession under the tutelage of more experienced teachers.
