Meet Us: Board of Trustees

Meet Our Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for maintaining the school’s alignment with its mission, establishing priorities, drafting long-range strategic plans, and assuming accountability for the financial sustainability of the school. It engages in annual financial planning and approves operating budgets. Divided into seven standing committees, each of which has its own focus and goals, every aspect of the school is nurtured, from trustee succession planning to overseeing endowment investments and buildings and grounds. Our trustees provide amazing vitality through their diverse points of view, expertise, passion, interests, and commitment.
