Board of Directors
Gig Harbor Academy is an independent school governed by a Board of Directors comprised of current and past parents of Gig Harbor Academy students and community members who volunteer their time and expertise.

1. Fiduciary: concerning itself with the stewardship of tangible assets and ensuring the school is financially sustainable;
2. Strategic: building a strategic partnership with the Head of School to develop long and short-range goals and plans;
3. Generative: concerning itself with setting the future direction of GHA. The Board of Directors provides direction through planning, developing, and evaluating its policies.
