Board of Directors
The GCA Board of Directors constitutes the authority for the Greenwood Christian Academy School Corporation’s school policy, programs, and academic development. The policies it establishes, the personnel it employs, and the manner in which it functions affects the daily life of the faculty, staff, and students.
Responsibility ultimately rests upon the Board of Directors for policy directing the growth and quality of GCA programs; conversely, the growth and quality of GCA programs are a direct reflection of the Board of Directors’ decisions.
Membership on the Board of Directors is as prescribed in the By-laws of GCA. Acceptance of the appointment implies the willingness to sacrificially donate the time and effort necessary to the operation of a private Christian institution of academic excellence. Specific duties of the Board of Directors are outlined in GCA’s By-laws. Areas of responsibility for which the Board is accountable are listed below.
