"I know sometimes we think we live in quiet and quaint Greenville, South Carolina, but what we are doing here at CCES is at the forefront of education. We are the leaders and the innovators. We are giving these kids, not just the facts and figures they need to know, but the value systems and skill-sets they need to be successful adults in a rapidly changing world. We are teaching kids to be human in a world that needs humanity." - Cary Weekes, Board Chair
The CCES Board of Trustees has 19 voting members for 2021-22. 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 three (3years, with an option for three (3) 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.
Christ Church Episcopal School (“CCES”) admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileged, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at CCES. CCES does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national or ethnic origin, creed, religion, or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid, scholarship or other programs, or athletic or other school-administered programs and activities.
