Board Directory

All current parents are members of the Miquon Corporation and therefore, are invited and encouraged to attend monthly board meetings. These meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm in Louis and Jeri’s classroom. Often there are opportunities for parents to get involved with board committee work as well. If you have questions about the board or would like to get in touch with a board member, please contact Director of Development Charlotte Boulay at

Miquon makes me happy. I have never encountered a school experience or an approach to learning that even comes close to what happens in this magical, nearly hidden valley.
