Standing Committees of the Board of Trustees

To sustain the school and its mission, the Board identifies and studies issues and challenges that will impact the school, then forms policies to address those issues. This is accomplished through standing committees, as well as strategic committees and task forces, which focus on specific areas of interest and governance designed to enhance the Galloway experience. Some committees include non-trustees.

Galloway’s Board of Trustees is composed of dedicated and hardworking volunteer members with varied skills and perspectives. Trustees are parents of current and former students, alumni, and members of the external Atlanta community. All share a deep personal commitment to the school and its future. Board members normally serve three-year terms and are eligible to serve up to two consecutive terms.
