Founded by a small group of parents supported by 3M in 1956, EAC is currently sponsored by seven multi-national companies. They are: 3M (founder), Caterpillar, Goodyear, Hyundai, International Paper, Procter & Gamble, and WestRock. Each company appoints an employee to serve on the EAC Board of Trustees.
Members of the EAC Board of Trustees serve as stewards of the school and are deeply committed to providing effective school governance. Working closely with the school administration, the EAC Board of Trustees guides EAC’s strategic direction and continuous improvement. The Board also closely monitors the financial health and sustainability of the school.
