The success of our Summer Program leans heavily on its sense of community. Vital to the definition and perpetuation of this warm community are the faculty members. They embody the ethos and tenor of the community with their unstinting commitment to the positive experience of each student and with their love of learning.
In addition to teaching classes, the role of the faculty members may include:
- Coach afternoon recreational athletics;
- Advise students;
- Mentor Faculty Interns;
- Supervise dormitories;
- Serve as Deans;
- Coordinate and chaperone events;
- Staff the library; and
- Assist in other ways as needed.
Though a significant number of our talented Summer Program faculty do come from The Loomis Chaffee School, a number hail from other schools. Each adult has, among numerous distinguishing traits, abundant energy and passion for working with adolescents.
