To represent the Academy, the Board of Directors of the Academy consists of members that represent the interests of all three branches. The Collegiate Academy and Student Academy have separate boards and meet separately to handle their routine business, but Senior Academy business is addressed during the main board meeting along with items that need to be coordinated between the three branches.

The Board of Directors is composed of elected officers and appointed individuals. The Board meets four times per year to consider business related to the activities and functions of the Academy.
