Faculty Directory

Canterbury School’s faculty provide a challenging, enriching and supportive learning environment to students build the foundation for a life of purpose, passion and meaning.

Many hold advanced degrees in their disciplines, including several who have earned terminal degrees. And, with a 9:1 student-faculty ratio, Canterbury students enjoy small class sizes with personalized instruction, meaningful connections and endless support.

Explore our faculty using the drop-down menus below. At Canterbury School, we consider “teaching faculty” as anyone who works directly with students and “non-teaching” faculty as anyone who indirectly supports our students, like office assistants, members of the marketing team, and others.
