Board of Trustees

Chapin School Board of Trustees 2017-2018

The Chapin School Board of Trustees is the primary governing body of the school.  It functions according to by-laws established in 1951 and most recently revised in 2014.  The Board bylaws provide for up to 24 term trustees, eight of whom must be parents of current students at the time of their election.  The Board is responsible for the establishment of policy, the appointment of the Head of School, and the preservation of the school's mission, finances, facilities, and programs.  

The Head of School and the President of the Parents' Association are ex officio members of the Board of Trustees.


Chapin is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the New Jersey Association of Independent School (NJAIS), and most recently reaccredited in 2015.  The school is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
