Saint Elizabeth High School is owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Welfare Corporation of the Diocese of Oakland.
The school is established to carry out the teaching ministry of the Catholic Church. As such, the religious and educational work shall at all times be in accordance with the teachings and laws of the Roman Catholic Church and the Diocese of Oakland. Ultimate responsibility for the school resides with the Bishop of the Diocese.
A Board of Trustees with limited jurisdiction was created in 2003. This Board of Trustees has as its primary concern the ministry of Catholic school education: the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of the students. The Board of Trustees, operating under the guidance of the Department of Catholic Schools, and in conformity with the policies of the Diocese of Oakland and consistent with the policies and plans of the Diocesan School Board, concerns itself with planning and policy issues pertaining to the general excellence of Catholic education at Saint Elizabeth High School.
Working in close collaboration with its chief administrative officer, the Principal, and hearing its many publics, this Board of Trustees formulates policies and plans that will enable the school to reach its agreed upon goals. These goals shall be related to, but not limited to, the overall goals established by the Diocesan School Board.
