Board of Trustees

Our leadership starts with our Board of Trustees.

A remarkably talented and dedicated group of individuals, the University Prep Board of Trustees provides careful stewardship and governance in partnership with our Head of School.

Made up of Founders, alumni, current and past parents, faculty, and community leaders, our Board is charged with ensuring and promoting the successful fulfillment of our mission, overseeing and evaluating the Head of School, developing policy, acting as fiduciaries of the school’s financial and capital resources, and setting the strategic direction of University Prep.

We adopt an inclusive, collaborative approach to leadership through a strong committee structure that involves key constituents and stakeholders in strategic planning and initiatives. The standing committees are: Advancement, Diversity and Community, Executive, Facilities, Finance and Audit, Human Resources, and Trusteeship and Governance.
