Who We Are

Board of Governors

Our School is governed by a Board of Governors. This is a dedicated and diverse group of volunteers who have the responsibility to uphold the mission and charism of a Sacred Heart education expressed in the Goals and Criteria. Each member is wholeheartedly committed to seeing the School grow and flourish. The Board of Governors is made up of present and past parents, alum, Religious of the Sacred Heart, a faculty appointee, and members of the wider community. The Board is accountable to the Provincial of the US-Canada Province of the Society of the Sacred Heart.
