Board of Trustees

McCallie, like most independent schools, is governed by a board of trustees. This group of 22 alumni is charged with ensuring that the school’s mission is relevant and vital to the community it serves, securing resources for the school to implement its mission, and monitoring the school’s overall success in fulfilling its mission. The board’s core activity is long-term planning so, in effect, their primary constituency is not today’s students but future students of the school. The board employs the head of school, approves the school’s annual budget, sets tuition, formulates policy, and routinely establishes and monitors the long-term strategic direction of the school. The board does not involve itself in the day-to-day operations or management of the school.

Several anticipated action steps accompany each strategic objective. The plan also incorporates a campus development plan with a longer time horizon.
