College of Teachers

The College of Teachers is a group of faculty and staff, which serves as the governing body of the school’s pedagogy. The College of Teachers (COT) carries the spiritual mission of the school and is responsible for the integrity of the curriculum. The members work closely with the Board of Trustees, administration, faculty and staff in the development of new programs, long-range plans, and improvements to school governance. To ensure inclusivity, the weekly College meetings may be attended by staff and faculty upon request.
