Teaching at Wyoming Seminary requires a commitment of the heart and mind. Advisors, faculty mentors and deans work with students to develop courses of study that are tailored to each student’s needs and interests.
Independent schools hire faculty based on competence in a particular discipline and a commitment to quality education; Sem faculty have lived and studied around the world.
At Sem, faculty members teach an average of 60 students per term in four to five classes of 12 to 18 students each. This allows them to assign challenging reading, writing and analytical work that demands more of both students and teacher. For both day and boarding faculty, taking part in campus life is an important priority. Sixty percent of Upper School faculty live in the dorms or in campus housing; 24 faculty members and their families serve as dorm faculty.
The advisor system also plays a key role in campus life. Each faculty member has an average of only eight advisees, with whom he or she meets regularly to review academic, social and personal issues. They help to plan academic programs, and work closely with students to determine if assistance is needed in any particular areas. Advisors also keep in close contact with parents, and ensure that students are making progress toward their goals throughout their Wyoming Seminary careers.
