Our Mission Statement

We are a school of inquiry and engagement. Grounded in our Episcopal heritage, we prepare and inspire students to lead lives of curiosity, courage and compassion.

2019-2020 Board of Trustees

Volunteers fill all board positions. Our board is made up of alumnae/i, parents, educators and professionals in multiple fields. Trustees are carefully selected based on demonstrated service to The White Mountain School and a clear commitment to our goals and philosophy. The members of the board set policy for the School and review the implementation of its policies.
