Governing Boards

Southfield School has two boards that are responsible for its successful operation: The Board of Trustees and Foundation Board.

Southfield School is a not-for-profit corporation with 501(c)(3) status.  The fiscal responsibility for non-profit organizations is held corporately by a Board of Trustees, made up of parents, alumni, and interested members of the community.  The Southfield Board of Trustees assures the school’s fiscal and academic well-being, develops short-term and long-term plans for the school, raises funds and manages debt, and hires the Head of School.  Board Members are nominated by the Trustee Committee and invited to serve for an open ended term, renewed annually.

The Foundation Board acts as an advisory board and handles the management and investment of the trust, which holds the school’s endowment funds. Foundation members are invited to serve for an open ended term.
