Faculty and Staff

The teachers at Back Creek work to equip each student with a Biblical worldview in every grade. Our staff provides students with opportunities to grow not only academically but train them for a life of service to God and their community. When our students enter higher education they are prepared socially, academically, and most importantly spiritually.
