Board of Trustees


Board of Trustees 2018 – 2019


The Board of Trustees governs Saint Mary’s College High School.

The San Francisco Province of the Brothers of the Christian Schools formed the Board of Trustees in 1994 and entrusted the Board with the responsibility for ensuring that Saint Mary’s remains vitally and effectively Lasallian.

The Board’s sacred trust is the Lasallian mission of the school.

The Board operates on a “macro level”; it establishes broad policies and delegates the task of carrying out its policies to the President, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Saint Mary’s College High School.
