Faculty - New Saint Andrews College

Leaders by Example

The faculty at New Saint Andrews is a close community of faithful Christian scholar-teachers. They have strong academic credentials and teaching experience in their respective disciplines, of course, but more importantly, as Christian spouses and parents themselves, they cherish the responsibility and privilege of nurturing the next generation in the paideia of the Lord. More than half of the faculty members are also ministers or teaching elders in their local congregations. So with an 11:1 student-teacher ratio, you’ll get to know the faculty not just as teachers and scholars, but as your mentors, neighbors, elder-brothers, role models, and friends. That’s the beauty of the College’s intimate, incarnational Christian community.
