Board of Trustees
The St. Patrick-St. Vincent Catholic High School Board of Trustees follows a model of governance designed to empower the board to fulfill their obligation of accountability for the school, to maintain and conduct a school for the Catholic religious instruction of young men and women and to further other Catholic religious and charitable work through the efforts of our students. The board’s temporal activities, business and affairs are managed by the President of the school, under the direction of the Board of Trustees. We are grateful that our Board of Trustees have embraced this model and our members are working to advance the mission of SPSV.
