Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees has a strong sense of strategic direction, while enabling the Head of School and the SCH administration to implement that vision. Overall authority for school operations rests with the Head of School and runs through separate administrator and various administrative structures. Key administrators report to the board in committee meetings, but only the Head of School is present at all sessions of the board and is a voting member. The board and administration follow NAIS Principles of Good Practice for governance, and the “vision” and “implementation” delineations are clear and run smoothly.

All of the board members participate in one or more of the following committees: Governance, Education and Enrollment (includes Athletics), Assets Management (includes Buildings and Grounds and Investments), Development (includes Capital Campaign), Audit, and Executive. Committees review their plans with the full board at the September meeting and review their progress at the June meeting, with full board input providing guidance on further goal setting and any further metrics needed to better measure progress.

Trustees serve three-year terms with an option to renew for additional consecutive terms. All trustees’ performance is reviewed annually by the Governance Committee.
