Board of Trustees

As the governing body of Bentley, the Board of Trustees is entrusted with the responsibility of developing appropriate policies, plans and budgets that will secure the School for the next generation of students.  Trustees are expected to take a lead role in all fundraising efforts. The Head of School is the Trustees’ only employee, and all work of the board is done in partnership with the Head of School, who guides the senior administrative team.

Standing committees of the Board include Executive, Finance, Audit, Building & Grounds, Head Support and Evaluation, Advancement, and Committee on Trustees. Trustees are elected to serve a term of three years, and may be elected to a second three-year term.
