FACULTY AND STAFF

Petra’s faculty and staff are passionate about children, their subject areas, and most importantly the Lord Jesus Christ. They strive every day to teach in a way that inspires joy through a God centered paideia. Understanding that teaching is a calling and the content we teach is about shaping the loves of children, our faculty not only cultivate relationships with the students, but their parents as well. We seek educators who love God, who love children, and who are both enthusiastic and diligent about teaching. The pursuit of academic excellence has come as a natural fit to Petra since its inception. Our faculty are highly-qualified and motivated. Families experience the relationships built with the administrators and the teachers are supportive and appreciative due to the commitment and the quality of education offered at Petra.

The classical pedagogy and use of great texts and serious subject matter of our curriculum further necessitate the enthusiastic entry of our students into the “great conversation” of ideas of our civilization past and present. Small teacher-student ratios and well-ordered classrooms that provide an atmosphere conducive to diligence add to the formula for success in this area. Finally, and most significantly, the desire to do all we do “heartily as to the Lord” calls for mirthful diligence from us all.
