Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is under the direction of the School President. The School President and Principal attend all Advisory Board meetings. The Advisory Board receives updates of school activities and finances. They make suggestions for policy changes where appropriate. They review the budget for the following school year and agree on the cost of tuition and fees. They approve the budget which is sent to the Superior General and Council of the Sisters of the Incarnate Word for final approval. The Advisory Board is integrally involved in fundraising for the school.
