The School

Mission Statement:

Within a Catholic community, Archbishop Wood High School provides a comprehensive, college-preparatory curriculum enhanced by spiritual, service, and extra-curricular experiences that will enable all students to be productive, responsible Christians in a technologically-complex, rapidly changing world.

About Us:

Archbishop Wood High School is located on a thirty-two acre tract of land in Warminster Township, Bucks County, just north of the intersection of Street and York Roads. The school is named to honor the memory of the Most Reverend James F. Wood, the fifth Bishop of Philadelphia and its first Archbishop. The school opened in September of 1964 as a twin facility to serve the youth of Central and Upper Bucks County along with areas of Eastern Montgomery County as single sex schools. Services were provided by dedicated religious and lay staff. Over the years, the religious serving the school have included Diocesan Priests, Fathers of the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (CICM), Vincentian Fathers (CM), Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales (OSFS), Sister Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM), Sisters of Saint Joseph (SSJ), Religious Sisters of Mercy (RSM), and the Religious of the Assumption (RA).

The twin schools earned a well-deserved reputation for Catholic formation and academic excellence, boasting numerous awards and honors over the years. The central lawn separating the two buildings was replaced with a beautiful auditorium uniting the physical plants in 1989, a lasting tribute to Mrs. Sophia Friedman and her Family who are long time Bucks County residents. The schools became one coeducation institution on July 1, 1990 with the official merger of the twin schools.

The President/Principal model of administration was introduced at the school in September 1994. Today, this vibrant educational community continues as strong as ever under the guidance and direction of dedicated administration, faculty and staff, both lay and religious, who strive together to provide the highest level of academic excellence with pride in the school’s Catholic mission of service to our students and their families.
