 About the Board

The North Yarmouth Academy Board of Trustees serves to perpetuate the Academy’s mission and vision and maintain the long-term health of the school. The Board appoints and oversees the Head of School, establishes broad policies, plans strategically for the Academy’s future, and develops and stewards the school’s financial and capital resources.

The Board supports the Academy and its leadership and seeks to advance both. Members, who serve in a voluntary capacity, are drawn from a variety of constituencies: alumni, current and past parents and grandparents, and other friends of the school.

The work of the board is completed through its standing committees, each of which meets regularly throughout the year.
