The purpose of this study was to explore board members' perceptions of their roles at an independent Christian school. The study was exploratory and interviews were used to elicit the members' perceptions. The participants included eight board members and the head administrator of a K–12 Christian school in the Midwest. Interviews were conducted with each participant two times during the school year. Questions focused on topics derived from the available literature dealing with public and private school boards and from the experience of the researcher. Qualitative data analysis methodology was used.
