Management

Mikuyuni Valley AcademyBoard

The responsibility of the Board of Management is to set and assess the policies of Mikuyuni Valley Academy and to ensure the school's spiritual, academic, operational, and fiscal health. 

The Board establishes the policies of the school, with the School Manager or Principal having the primary responsibility for the implementation of the Board's policies.  As stewards of Mikuyuni Valley Academy, the Board, through committee involvement along with staff and parents, assists in the overall planning process and implementation of policies and goals set for the school.

The Board meets as a whole four to six times per year and operates through a series of standing committees.  Each Board member serves on at least one committee and many more than one.  Committees include: Personnel, Finance, Facilities, Development, Governance and Master Planning.

The Board will evaluate the effectiveness of the Academy's programs and services in achieving its mission.  The Board's role in this area is to work with the Principal proactively to determine how to best achieve the Academy's vision and mission objectives.

Parents Involvement
Parent participation is a crucial element in why MVA has a reputation as a family-friendly, wholesome environment. Active and passionate parents join us on our service trips and class field trips to destinations in the country. Parents also help out at school-wide events such as the Back to School program and Graduation. Additionally, parents often bring siblings and extended family to help with events or service opportunities on school.

And, of course, we always depend on parent prayers for the safety of our students and in support of our goal to bring each student into a closer relationship with Christ. The relationships among parents create a caring community, as parents help each other with the parenting process and weave a web of support for our students.
