Board of Trustees

Ensuring that school activities align with the four pillars of faith, scholarship, leadership and service 

The Board of Trustees is a volunteer board and the governing body for Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy. The BOT meets as a group once per month, and each board member also serves on one additional sub-committee. The BOT’s primary functions are to oversee school finances, approve policy, and support marketing, enrollment and development initiatives. At the highest levels, the BOT ensures that the activities of the school align with the four pillars of faith, scholarship, leadership and service.  The BOT welcomes comments and questions about Saint Joseph's.  To reach the BOT, just email
