Board of Directors

The leadership of the Board of Directors is integral to the success of The Hope Academy. While day-to-day matters rest with the Superintendent and the Head of School, the Board of Directors is the school’s primary governing body. The Board consists of parents, faculty, and members of the community. It meets several times a year to provide oversight, long range strategic planning, expansion and growth preparation, and financial support.
