About our Board of Trustees

Leading Strategically with Thoughtful Governance

  • Safeguarding the financial sustainability of the school

  • Planning strategically for the future

  • Maintaining bylaws and policies consistent with the school's mission

  • Selecting and evaluating the Head of School

  • Identifying, selecting, and orienting new trustees

  • Assuring the school's compliance with applicable laws and regulations

  • Playing a leadership role in fundraising efforts.
