Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is the guardian of the School’s mission and philosophy. It is organized on a non-stock, directorship basis under the Michigan Non-Profit Corporation Act.
Articles of Incorporation and corporate bylaws describe and guide board operations. The members of the Board of Trustees elect officers to govern the management of the board. Board responsibilities include hiring and evaluation of the Head of School, approving the annual budget, and strategic planning. The board oversees the governance of the school and is careful not to impinge upon the day to day operational roles of the school’s administrators. It acts as a support to, and resource, for the Head of School and administration.
