Board of Trustees

Camellia Waldorf School has a shared leadership structure with responsibilities shared by the faculty, staff, and Board of Trustees. In addition, the Francis Guild Parent Association fosters parent involvement within the school.

The school is incorporated as a nonprofit organization, and as such, the Board of Trustees holds the legal and financial responsibility for the school, which includes setting tuition and developing the budget. The board is also empowered to establish committees and create task forces in order support its work. Board meetings are held once a month. The Board of Trustees is made up of parents, alumni parents, and faculty members.  The following volunteers comprise our current board:
