The Miami Valley School is a not-for-profit independent school and has no shareholders or owners. The Miami Valley School is governed by a Board of Trustees, which, since the school’s founding, has been entrusted with advancing the school’s mission, developing strategic plans and initiatives to protect the school’s well-being, and ensuring the school’s long-term financial viability for future generations. The Board’s primary responsibilities include:
– Determining and upholding the school’s mission and purpose, and ensuring that the school’s external presence is reflective of that mission and purpose.
– Selecting, supporting and evaluating the Head of School.
– Ensuring effective strategic planning and assisting in implementing, monitoring, and strengthening programs.
– Overseeing the management of the endowment, protecting assets, and providing proper financial oversight.
The Board entrusts operational matters to the Head of School, and the Head serves as an ex officio member of the Board.
