The members of the Board include parents, teachers, alumni and friends of the school. The Board is not involved in day-to-day management or pedagogical decisions. Rather, it grants authority to the Pedagogical Chair. At its monthly meetings, the Board discusses, and accepts or responds to reports from the Director of Advancement and Operations and the Pedagogical Chair, providing counsel when requested. The Board approves major financial and capital improvement decisions and focuses its time on policies and strategies that are future oriented. The school is deeply grateful for the work of its trustees.
