The Board of Trustees is the governing body of St. Mary’s School. Individual members serve as lead advocates of St. Mary’s mission and guardians of its well-being. The Board’s main purposes are:
- to ensure the financial security of the institution;
- to protect St. Mary’s legacy and mission;
- to support the strategic vision and policy positions;
- to hire and support the Head of School.
Board composition reflects the strategic expertise, resources, and perspectives — past, present, future — needed to achieve the mission and strategic objectives of the school. As such, the trustees are comprised of volunteers from diverse backgrounds within and outside the St. Mary’s parent community. Individual members serve three-year terms and participate in ongoing trustee education, evaluation, and board leadership succession planning.
The Board works to ensure all members are actively involved in the work of the Board and its committees. Standing Board Committees include Development, Finance, Governance, Facilities, and Strategic Planning. To continually meet the high expectations of parents, our trustees work in partnership with our Head of School to provide for enhanced programs and talented people who make an IB World School education in a Christian environment so special at St. Mary’s. Individual trustees believe in the institution and make it a top priority for their philanthropic giving.
