The CCES Board of Trustees has 19 voting members for 2019-2020. A simple majority of trustees must be Episcopalian. At least two (2) trustees must be members of Christ Church, one of whom is a representative of the Vestry. The Vestry representative serves as a voting member.
The Board meets five (5) times per year, and trustees are not compensated. Trustees serve terms of four (4) years, with an option for two (2) consecutive terms. Trustees may rotate off for one year and stand for election again.
Standing committees include Finance, Trustees, Advancement, Religious Life, Executive, and By-laws. The Committee on Trustees also serves as the nominating committee. The Head of School serves as an ex-officio (non-voting) member of all committees—standing and ad hoc.
