Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for governing the affairs of St. Ignatius Catholic School in accordance with the Mission and Vision. The St. Ignatius Catholic School Board of Trustees has limited jurisdiction and is responsible for the operation of the school system, including strategic planning and administrative advisement to the system president. 


The Board of Trustees is made up of a group of lay individuals appointed by the Board of Directors.  The Board of Trustees seeks to maintain a balance of individuals with a range of expertise including business, education, finance, fundraising, marketing, and non-profit management. Parents of students in the school system, as well as members-at-large from parish communities and community leaders also make up the Board of Trustees.

Support & Evaluation COmmittee

The Board of Trustees has established a standing Support & Evaluation Committee. This committee will receive feedback from parents, faculty, and staff and meet monthly with the Head of School to monitor the progress on our established goals and priorities. We encourage families to submit their feedback at any time via our website feedback form or by contacting the Support & Evaluation Committee members directly:
