Board of Directors

Community Leaders Supporting Students

Perspectives’ Board of Directors, Executive Leadership Team, and Principals ensure the favorable outcome of our mission to prepare students to become ethical leaders engaged in a meaningful life. Our board members are leaders in their respective industries. Many have been long time supporters of Perspectives. Their commitment to Perspectives and their generosity of both time and expertise are central to the responsible management of our schools.
