Ryan Wood

School Principal/CEO

Welcome to RJC High School!  As Principal of RJC I have the privilege of working alongside some of the finest students, staff, and supporters of my career.  Their supportive presence combined with RJC’s mission to prepare leaders for lives of faith, service and peacemaking gives me the energy to do my job each and everyday.  What is my job? To, in turn, support students and staff as they pursue their goals. It is truly an honor to work at RJC, and to witness firsthand the difference an RJC education makes.  I hope you consider joining our supportive and vibrant school community.
