About Us | Board of Directors


The Sisters of Christian Charity organized Josephinum Academy's inaugural Board of Directors in 1985 to assume “governing, legal and financial responsibility for the school." Today, guided by the Goals and Criteria of the Sacred Heart Network of Schools, board members are fully committed to the mission of Josephinum and pledge their support to its students, faculty, and staff. Each member serves at least one three-year term, attending quarterly board meetings and serving on at least one of the board committees, which include: Marketing Committee, Finance Committee, Development Committee, Buildings and Grounds Committee, and the Committee on Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of Josephinum alumnae, Religious of the Sacred Heart, as well as business and community leaders with experience in a wide range of industries.
