As stewards of The King's Academy's mission, the School Board provides financial, spiritual, academic, and operational oversight. Additionally, the Board hires and evaluates the Head of School.
The Board establishes the policies of the school and sets the strategic plan, with the Head of School having the primary responsibility for the implementation of the Board's policies and long-term goals.
The Board also evaluates the effectiveness of the school's programs and services in achieving its mission. The Board's role in this area is to work with the Head of School proactively to determine how to best achieve the school's ministry and mission objectives.
The Board meets as a whole ten to twelve times per year and operates through a series of standing committees. Each Board member serves on at least one committee and many on more than one. Committees include: Audit, Endowment, Finance, Facilities, Governance, Long-Range Planning, Personnel, and Spiritual Life.
Any questions for the School Board should be directed to Scott Meadows, Head of School, who is a member of the School Board. Questions about day-to-day school activities should be directed to High School Principal, Kristine Lui, or Junior High Principal, Jack Ferrante.
