About Us

Faculty & Staff

We Practice What We Teach

We say Severn teachers practice what they teach because they demonstrably live their passion for learning each day, continually applying their knowledge to their lives. With such dedicated scholars directing discussion, demonstrating a lab concept, or just joining a friendly debate, students have clear models to emulate on the way to becoming self-directed learners.

Faculty and Staff Directory

Students find wise, adult guidance at every corner of the Severn campus. Our experienced teachers, coaches, and learning specialists form close bonds with their students, creating a close-knit support network for each learner at Severn. It allows us to extend greater challenges to students, precisely because we know their interests, their motivations, and their abilities.

Faculty Professional Development

As a student-centered institution, Severn School believes that adults should model the qualities they wish to see in their students. To that end, adults at Severn engage in professional development as a community of learners. Severn believes that adults learn best in collaborative situations where professional growth is valued.
We provide built-in professional development opportunities throughout the school year, support faculty travel to conferences, offer grants for personal and professional growth, and offer a robust line-up of summer PD classes taught by and for Severn faculty. Our hope is that faculty will engage frequently in professional development so as to remain nimble for change in our evolving world.
