Faculty

crestThe major objective of Briarwood Academy is to provide an educational experience that will enable each student to achieve the maximum in scholastic, social, moral, and spiritual growth. Briarwood is able to accomplish this because of the excellence of the academic program, the quality and dedication of its staff, and the quality of the school environment.

The responsibility of a teacher in a child’s life is immeasurable. The teacher instructs as much by personal example as by any other method, and has a responsibility to maintain a proper professional image at all times.
