Governing Board

Berean’s Board of Education is comprised of five members who freely dedicate their time and energy to serving our school community. Our board members know that our scholars come first, and they make every decision with only the best interests of our students in mind.

Since Berean Academy operates under the 501(c)(3) non-profit status of the Cochise Community Development Corporation (CCDC), our board makes decisions regarding both the Corporation and Berean Academy during its meetings.

Please Join Us

We value the input of our community and invite you to provide comments regarding items open for review during our regular meetings. We meet at various times throughout the year according to the schedule posted on this website. Please make plans to join us.
