Board of Trustees

Anacapa School is governed by a Board of Trustees.  Board members work collaboratively to create conditions necessary for the school’s success in expanding opportunities for our students to lead positive and productive lives.  They do so by providing a strategic framework for that success: ensuring the school’s fiscal health, increasing its endowment support, and overseeing outreach efforts that increase the size and diversity of a mission-appropriate student body. Members of the Board draw their expertise from many diverse areas, including the fields of education, law, finance, and business.  All of them devote many hours to ensuring that the Anacapa experience is the best it can possibly be for its past, current, and future students.
