Each year the NCEA Department of Boards and Councils of Catholic Education recognizes a few of the many outstanding boards, councils, and commissions of Catholic education. The purpose of this award is to acknowledge outstanding work, share ideas and best practices, and encourage excellence.

The forty-five (45) year old Santa Fe Catholic High School Board of Directors has thirteen (13) members with diverse qualifications such as community development, advertising and marketing, engineering, real estate, finance, higher education, and business.
This award recognizes the major accomplishments of the Santa Fe Catholic High School Board of Directors during the past three years. Significant strides have been made in the areas of board recruitment, organizational strength, orientation, and training. A major strategic planning program was initiated by the board that resulted in the establishment of a Parish Task Force, a Technology Task Force, and a Focus Group. The Board had a major role in the selection of a school president, the recruitment and hiring of a principal, and a director of institutional advancement. The board finance committee is working closely with the administration and community experts to develop a thorough marketing strategy and a cohesive plan for implementation.
Congratulations to Santa Fe Catholic High School!
