School Governance

Cayman Prep & High School

Leadership and Management

The school is governed by the Board of Governors, which is appointed by the Council of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) and is responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of the school, using the agreed Articles of Association.

The Board is the steward of the school’s mission and resources. This model espouses the Director as responsible for operational and academic matters at the school, as per Board policy.

The Board is responsible for setting policy and approving the annual budget, strategic planning, performance, risk management, financial controls, employment terms, facilities, accreditation and memberships, marketing and mission attainment.

Included in the membership are the two School Chaplains and two members appointed annually by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
