The Board of Trustees has the responsibility, in consultation with school Administration, for setting school policy, maintaining the Schools’ financial health and selecting the school Principal. The School Board, as the primary decision making body, is involved in long-range planning, evaluation and direction. The Board is accountable through the Archdoicese of Indianapolis for operating the School according to its Goals and Criteria. The Board is composed of no more than 15 members, two of whom must be Religious of the Holy Cross Priesthood. The Principal and former President of HASA (the Schools’ parents’ organization) are members, ex officio.
The Board meets as a whole once per month and operates through a series of standing committees. Each board member serves on at least one standing committee and many on more than one. Committees include:
- Religious Identity
- Facilities & Capital Improvement
- Enrollment and Marketing
- Curriculum and School Development
- Finance and Development
As is typical of independent schools, the Board is self-perpetuating. This means that the trustees select their own successors. Criteria to be considered includes diversity of talent and background, willingness to serve and perform the duties required, prior efforts on behalf of the Schools and conformance to the guidelines for makeup of the board as set forth in the bylaws. The board is diverse in terms of talent and background, but share a common devotion to Christ the King and its mission as expressed through hard work and generosity.
