Geneva’s Board of Trustees is the governing organization of the school. The Board is responsible for ensuring that Geneva is faithful to its mission, even as it continues to grow and adapt. The Board operates at a strategic level establishing annual strategic objectives assigned to and overseen by Board committees and the Head of School. These objectives are part of a five-year strategic plan created by the board mindful of present and future goals and priorities which ensure that Geneva adheres to mission now and for future generations. When necessary, the trustees develop and/or amend policy that is crucial for the maintaining of mission adherence. The Board also approves the annual budget and sets tuition to ensure the continuing stability and success of the school.
Geneva’s Board of Trustees has only one employee: the Head of School. The Board hires, reviews and oversees the Head of School, and he or she reports directly to the Board. The Board does not oversee any other member of the school’s faculty or staff—all report to the Head of School. This is important as it sets the line between the governance of the school, which is performed by the Board and the day-to-day administration of the school, which is performed by the Head of School and his or her employees.
The Board of Trustees works as a group. No one member of the Board has any authority alone. Board members only have authority when they meet together to discuss and decide on issues.
The Board is comprised of people from the local community who are passionate about the future of Geneva School of Boerne. Many are current Geneva parents, and some are parents or grandparents of alumni. Anyone who meets the specific personal qualities described in the Portrait of a Geneva Board Member (see below) is eligible to serve. Nominations are requested every year in the fall.
