Dear Viking Parents,

Welcome to Archbishop Wood High School! Our Motto, "Faithfulness Merits the Crown", is the foundation and heartbeat of our school. Each day, our students have the opportunity to shine academically, serve others, and serve God. Remaining faithful to God-given talent and ability is the hallmark of our student body. Each proud Viking embodies an experience of academic encouragement, faith-filled community atmosphere, and activities that promote collaboration and excellence. Our students are educated within a strong culture for learning, and the opportunity to excel!

Please feel free to access our Course Guide. With 12 Advanced Placement Courses, Dual Enrollment, and high interest electives to foster career discernment, we serve the needs of all students. Academically, Archbishop Wood National Merit Scholars, Commended Students, and Semi Finalists exemplify the work ethic and triumph of our efforts. Our wide-ranging extracurricular activities, including our Champion Robotics Team and strong Athletics Program compliment the high school experience. Our newly renovated College and Career Counseling Center provides state of the art technology and in person meeting space for College Representative visits, Instant Decision Days, and one on one sessions with three full time Academic Counselors.

I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve as Principal of Archbishop Wood. As a parent of a proud alumnus, I've experienced Viking Pride.  As Principal, I vow to continue a path to growth and excellence.
