Board of Governors
The Board of Governors of Crofton House School is made up of a group of dedicated, capable and willing individuals who all share a love of the school, a deep commitment to its vision, and an appreciation of the value of a first-class education for young women. The composition of the board reflects the balance of expertise and perspectives needed to achieve the mission of the school. To this end, each board member gives generously of his or her time, expertise, and resources and sits on up to two board committees depending on areas of interest.
