Ryan Wood

School Principal

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 make.  I hope you consider joining our supportive and vibrant school community.

Statement from

Tammy Forrester

Board Chair 

As RJC Board Chair, alongside the work of the Board and Staff, we want to encourage alumni, supporters and friends to engage and re-engage with RJC as a high school that has transitioned into a Mennonite school for the global student. A student who longs for a safe and secure place to learn and grow and become an independent thinker participating in leadership experiences and service opportunities beyond their local communities. A school where their sense of belonging is explored and lived, and where students can be their whole selves, exploring their own spiritual path while participating in every sport, musical and artistic adventure. Where teacher-student ratios are low and academics are enriched to support each student and where they are at in their learning journey.  Where living in a student community helps build personal resilience and independence needed for a student to succeed beyond their high school years. RJC is a school for the future and I am pleased to continue to participate in its mission through the work with the Board of Directors and staff.
