By offering Wood's Annual Fund Report/Viking Magazine in a digital format, we are able to direct the thousands of dollars saved towards tuition assistance to help families facing economic challenges.

As a tribute to our Viking Alumni, we have dedicated this year's AFR/Viking Magazine cover to our Alumni health heroes/essential workers who submitted their stories to us throughout the pandemic - this is our way of saying
THANK YOU for all you do and sacrifice for the betterment of our world!

Back to School News...
On September 10, 2020, Archbishop Wood welcomed 175 freshman students and our returning sophomores, juniors and seniors. Wood’s staff and administration worked tirelessly throughout the summer so we could open our doors on time and continue to provide an excellent college prep education for our students while keeping them safe and healthy. 

THANKS TO YOU, our Viking Family, Wood had the funds to transition in March 2020 to an online learning academy, open in September with a hybrid model and now prepare for the day when we can return to 100% in-school learning.
