School Board

The goal of the School Board is to maintain a Catholic educational community that is in accordance with and subject to the standards, guidelines, and discipline of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces. The School Board consists of a maximum of 12 voting members. The Bishop of Las Cruces appointed four Priests from among the four area parishes to serve as voting members of the School Board. Not more than one-quarter of the voting members of the Board may be parents or other family members of children currently enrolled in the school.
