Our Faculty

Click below on the profile links to learn more about our stellar faculty. You will discover that they are engaged in all three strands of our work – co-curricular, academic and spiritual – showing their commitment to strive towards the Magis – the more. 

They support the Jesuit philosophy of cura personalis and cura communis, caring for the individual and maintaining positive, respectful relationships with all members of the community. They also support Jesuit commitment to a faith that does justice.

They meet the needs of students of differing backgrounds and abilities and encouraging students to be risk-takers who learn from their mistakes. They also model and encourage an enthusiastic desire for lifelong learning.

They are also well prepared and engage in ongoing professional development. Nearly 100 hold masters degrees, and another five have earned their doctoral degrees.
