Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting broad school policy, maintaining Stuart’s long term financial stability and for hiring and evaluating the Head of School. The Board is also entrusted with ensuring that Stuart remains faithful to the Goals and Criteria and to its mission as a Sacred Heart School.

Important criteria for consideration are a commitment to, and understanding of, Sacred Heart education, diversity of talent and background, and a willingness to serve manifest in involvement, generosity and hard work. The Board also respects the tenets of good independent school governance and seeks an appropriate mix of current and past parents, alumnae and community and civic leaders.
