Board of Trustees

GFA is governed by a Board of Trustees representing various Friends churches, other supporting churches, and the Academy’s alumni. Regular meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the school library. Unless closed for Executive business (dealing with confidential issues), these meetings are open to the public.

If you wish to speak to the Board, you should contact the Principal who will be happy to assist you. Call (208) 459-6346 to confirm meeting times or for additional information.
