Governance at Phillips Exeter Academy lies with the Trustees. They work closely with the principal and administrators, who lead the day-to-day operations of the Academy, and with the faculty, who focus on matters related to the student experience. While each group has its own role and responsibilities, they work together with all deliberations informed by a collaborative spirit and a shared commitment to Exeter's educational mission.

See the Academy bylaws, adopted on October 27, 2023, and the review update from the Committee on Trustees.
