FACULTY & STAFF

Our teachers are certified by the state of South Carolina as required by law.  Once certified, teachers continue their education with additional coursework and attendance at educational conferences to renew their credentials every 5 years.


Twenty-one of our twenty-six teachers have advanced degrees in education, including three with doctorates.  


In addition to their educational credentials, all teachers participate in ongoing professional development to enhance their skills and knowledge for working in a single-gender environment. The faculty has attended workshops and conferences, both in-state and out, to meet with nationally recognized experts in the field. We also network with teachers across the state, sharing ideas, strategies, and insights into working with all boys or all girls classes. Our teachers share ideas with one another here and work together to build their resources.  They are frequently called upon to present at state and national conferences.
