Board of Trustees

Like most independent schools, Kildonan is led by a Board of Trustees and the Head of School, each with distinct and complementary responsibilities that promote the school’s goals and visions for the future.

The Board of Trustees helps formulate policy, stewards the school’s assets, and selects, retains, and counsels the Head of School. Each year the Board sets and approves the budget as a financial expression of policy decisions. A breakdown of operating revenue and operating expenses can be found in the Annual Report, published every fall.
