Holding Ourselves Accountable
The Whigham School is a non-profit organization. All operations and finances are overseen by one of school’s two active boards: the Operating Board of Directors. All financial transactions and systems will be reviewed by an outside, independent accounting firm which will report annually on the financial health of the organization. All future planning and development, as well as operational and financial oversight will also be managed by the Advisory Board of Directors and a separate group of Student Investors & Program Donors to ensure The Whigham School is being managed properly both in terms of operations and finances.
The Whigham School is a non-profit organization dedicated to the training of future leaders to do substantial good in the world. Everyone that works for the school, invests in the school, or attends the school will pledge to keep The Whigham School accountable to its original purpose—and given the means to raise concerns as needed.
Because of The Whigham School’s commitment to accountability and responsibility, the students of The Whigham School will be held to the same standard as the school holds itself. All students will sign a pledge to uphold the mission/vision of the school and its statement of values.
