"As long as the faculty keeps encouraging us to ask questions and stimulate our brains I am sure the program will continue its legacy." – Natural Science student, 2006

"Amazing faculty! …encouraging, patient, understanding, and demanding."

"The teachers are awesome. They really know their stuff, and treat us as individuals. They really challenged me to think and re-think."

"All of the teachers and TACs are hard-working, intelligent, and always willing to help."

"Fantastic teachers and mentors."

– Students, 2003

Faculty and staff are bright, dedicated teachers and professionals from across the country. They teach in public and private schools, colleges and universities, or are independent artists and scholars. Most of the faculty are in residence on campus, and along with the teaching assistants/counselors and students, form a true community of learners.

The TACs (teaching assistants/counselors) program employs college juniors and seniors, graduate students, and young professionals as dormitory counselors who also have an active involvement in the overall program, either through assisting with particular classes or other support roles. Many TACs attended Governor's School and have a strong knowledge of the program.
