Board of Trustees

Like all other NAIS member independent schools and CAIS-accredited independent schools, Burke’s is governed by an independent, self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. The Board determines Burke's mission, strategic goals, and policy positions. The Board also acts as fiduciaries for future generations of Burke’s girls—exercising oversight of the school’s financial health, approving the school’s annual budget, and overseeing the school’s endowment, physical assets, and fundraising. Importantly, the board selects, evaluates, and supports the Head of School. The Board does not get involved in the day-to-day affairs of the school, disciplinary or personnel issues, or admissions decisions—which are the responsibility of the Head of School. In short, the trustees act as stewards of the school, while serving as ambassadors of Burke’s mission.
