The Stargate School Board of Directors is elected by, and represents, the members of the Stargate Community. Board members set the general direction and policy of the school, with a focus on longer term and “big picture” issues. The board is responsible for the Stargate budget, review of the annual audit and evaluation of the school's executive director, as well as compensation, policy approval and corporate level sponsorships.

Stargate Board members are elected to three-year terms, during which time they are expected to serve as a voting member of the board, to develop policies for the operation of Stargate School, and to monitor and evaluate its finances, programs and performance.
