The Board of Trustees is a self-perpetuating group of alumni, past parents, parents, and friends of the school whose primary charge is to safeguard the mission of the school and ensure its financial stability.

They are fiduciaries of the whole, collectively responsible for the welfare of the school, along with the Head of School. Trustees give generously of their time, talents, and treasure to further the best interests of the school. Focused on "the view from 10,000 feet," they are not involved in the daily operational issues, including program and personnel matters.

Board Diversity Statement

The Gill St. Bernard’s Board of Trustees supports a welcoming, inclusive, and equitable community that celebrates diversity of culture, experiences, perspectives, and expression.

We will continue to affirm the importance of inclusiveness and belonging among our students, our faculty, our staff, and our families. We value a community that embraces, and is strengthened by a broad range of talent, interests, lived experiences, and cultural representations, all of which enhance our understanding and appreciation for the GSB community and the world around us.

We celebrate a learning environment that encourages conversation across perspectives, and a curriculum that supports diverse points of view that enrich inquiry, deepen knowledge, promote growth, and prepare students with cross-cultural skills necessary to engage in an ever-changing and connected world.

We support, through intentional and ongoing engagement, the creation of a kind, empathetic, and equitable community that respects and honors all aspects of what makes each individual unique to ensure that everyone has access to a positive GSB experience.
