Board Of Directors

The Board is comprised of a committed group of volunteers whose only agenda is to provide the highest quality college-preparatory education to the 1000 students who walk through University Academy’s doors each day. University Academy’s board currently includes a dean of a university, a retired CEO, as well as five other members with significant business, finance, legal, and not-for-profit and corporate governance experience.  Two out of the four founders of the school continue to serve on the board which provides great continuity in regards to the school’s mission and vision.
