Board of Directors


Menlo Park Academy’s Board of Directors is responsible for setting the school’s strategic goals and establishing policies based on our mission, state laws, and the school’s charter. The volunteer members of the Board represent a diverse set of professional backgrounds and have expertise in finance, education, technology, operations, non-profit organizations, strategic planning, and fundraising.

The Board of Directors meets at least twice per month (one working session and one regular session) on the first and third Thursday. Each year, MPA publishes an Annual Report that highlights the achievements and progress the school has made from the previous academic year.
