NOVA Middle School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees.

Through its fiduciary, strategic and generative roles, the Board is responsible for the overall sustainability of NOVA. The Board sets policy and hires and evaluates the Head of School, and uses the Real Time Strategic Planning (RTSP) format to create and monitor strategic priorities. The Board does not involve itself in program, curriculum, or other areas included in the responsibilities of the Head of School.

The work of the Board is done through a committee and task force structure and meets on the second Tuesday of the month September through June.
