Advisory Board 2018-07-16T19:50:12-05:00

Norwood-Fontbonne Academy, as a sponsored work of the Sisters of St. Joseph, has an established Advisory Board to help further the vision and mission of the Academy. In their deliberations, the Board reviews current and future trends for Catholic/independent schools, studies subcommittee input, and makes formal recommendations to the Academy’s President and through him to the General Council of the Sisters of St. Joseph.

The full Board, comprised of alumni, current NFAPA president(s), parents of alumni, and community members, convenes four times annually. Three subcommittees (facilities, finance, and development ) meet regularly– often monthly– to study and prepare proposals for the full Board. Subcommittees include board members and members-at-large drawn from the broader community; they bring additional expertise and perspectives to the goals/topics per committee.
