The Monte Cassino School Board of Directors is a governing body that has been charged with the financial, operational and strategic oversight of the school.
The Monte Cassino Board of Directors is made up of between 12 and 18 elected or appointed individuals, plus four "ex officio" members (the Prioress, Sub-Prioress, Headmaster and PTO President). A list of current board members is provided below.
