Below you will find a list of the talented new faculty who will join our learning community next fall.
This new cohort is well-trained and brings a broad and deep experience to Waterford from around the country and right here in Utah.This large incoming group of faculty is reflective of Waterford’s healthy and growing enrollment—ensuring high levels of teaching expertise and maintaining low student-faculty ratios.We look forward to welcoming these new colleagues to Waterford later this summer and to you meeting them at our Opening Family Brunch on August 26.

Our faculty and staff are the core of Waterford School, they are the ones who ignite the passion and shape the character of our students, they play an integral part in inspiring our students towards lives filled with meaning and purpose. We are so grateful for the many invaluable and incredible contributions made by those faculty and staff members departing Waterford School—without their immeasurable efforts and devotion to the liberal arts, our school would not be the same wonderful place of inspiration and curiosity that we love so deeply. We thank them for their many years of service.
