Cardigan’s Board of Trustees comprises a blend of alumni, current and past parents and grandparents, and friends of the School. They come from all over the world, and among them are accomplished physicians, attorneys, and business people.

Their life and career experiences, along with their willingness to invest substantial amounts of time and energy to the School, make them able stewards of Cardigan’s mission. The Board of Trustees meets on campus three times each academic year. Trustees also serve on committees that meet numerous times by conference call throughout the year.
