Faculty & Staff


Exceptional faculty members are the key to an outstanding Country School education. This year, 78 full-time teachers and 46 apprentices, assistants and part-time specialists support and inspire our students. Well over half of our full-time teachers hold master’s degrees.
Our seasoned instructors reflect ethnic and religious diversity, as well as a blend of youth and maturity. These teachers—an eclectic group of lifelong learners who lead by example—challenge students to fulfill their potential, find their path, and follow their passions whether in the classroom, on the playing fields, on the stage, or serving the community.
With a teacher-to-student ratio of 1 to 6 and supported by a dedicated corps of 52 administrators and staff members that strongly believe in the power of education, our innovative and caring faculty guides our students to become change agents of the future.
Country School teachers have, on average, taught for 18 years and continually work to expand and hone their skills. New Canaan Country School endeavors to recruit and retain outstanding scholars and teachers and recognizes their achievements in a variety of ways.
