2021/2022 Board of Trustees

Nativity Prep is fortunate to have been guided since its founding by dedicated Trustees who serve as the guardians of our mission and our fiscal health. There are 20 independent-voting trustees who currently serve on our Board. They have ultimate accountability for the school’s Ignatian/Catholic character and its academic standards, fundraising activities, and financial operations. In addition to their expertise and generous financial support, a number of Board members serve as mentors and tutors as well.

Board Policies

Our Board of Trustees initiates broad institutional policies as needed in the interest of furthering the school’s mission and decreasing risk to the school community. Our Board’s institutional policies are broad statements of purpose or limitation, developed by the Board and/or its committees and guided by current best practices for non-profit organizations and private, independent schools. To date, our Board of Trustees has implemented the following three institutional policies: Whistleblower Protection, Conflict of Interest, and Donor Privacy.

Financial Reports

By delegation to the school’s President and under the direction of the Board’s Finance Committee, the Board of Trustees has ultimate accountability for assuring the school’s short-term and long-term financial health. The Board approves the fiscal-year budget (June-July) and hires an independent accounting firm (AKT) to perform a yearly comprehensive Financial Review Report and to file the annual IRS Form 990.
