Gaudior Academy is built on the power of the team. Many teams, with various levels of responsibility, work together to produce the learning experiences that are unique to our school.
Gaudior Academy is governed on a day-to-day basis by the Director and the Advisory Team in matters that concern the operations part of the school program. The Advisory Team consists of one teacher from every level, one specialist and the Director. The staff, as a team, recommends major policy, calendar, budget, etc., to the Gaudior Board.
