The Santa Fe Waldorf School is committed to an active, alive, and transparent process of governance. The school continually strives to integrate and maintain a leadership and administrative structure that is collaborative, efficient and effective. 

Leadership and governance at the school is divided among three primary bodies: the Board of Trustees, the College of Teachers, and the Administration. The Board and College share the management of the school’s operations. The Board is primarily responsible for financial, fiscal, and legal matters, while the College is responsible for pedagogical matters, although each group supports the efforts of the other in various ways. The Administration works to facilitate communication between the different governing bodies, provides the logistical structure required for safe and effective operation and implements the policies and recommendations of the Board and College.
