• Classification

    The thirty-member Board of Trustees consists of three classes: Trustees of the Community, Trustees of the Corporation, and Trustees of the Sending Towns.

    • Trustees of the Corporation serve a 6-year term that may be renewed upon the recommendation of the Board of Trustee’s Nominating Committee. All Trustees of the Corporation have attended The Academy for a minimum of one year. Trustees of the Corporation must comprise at least one-third of the full board.
    • Trustees of the Community serve a six-year term that may be renewed upon the recommendation of the Board of Trustees' Nominating Committee. The number of Trustees of the Community cannot equal more than two-thirds of the total membership.
    • Trustees of the Sending Towns are representatives of a Board of Education that has chosen The Woodstock Academy as its designated high school. The term of each Trustee of the Sending Towns expires upon the re-organization of his/her Board of Education.
    • The President of the Alumni Association of The Woodstock Academy is designated as an Ex-Officio Trustee.
    • The Board of Trustees also confers the title of Honorary Trustee upon those individuals who have provided distinguished service to The Academy. Honorary Trustees are not entitled to voting privileges.
