Principal's message

  • Patrick Fife
  • Principal
  • Choosing a school for your son or daughter is a very important decision. While RICC does not boast a long history and rich heritage dating back to the 1800s, like many similar schools, it makes up for it in the strong commitment and dedication that our staff has for our students. It is a modern version of the traditional boarding school, emphasizing the values necessary to build character and pursue excellence, and to succeed at the next level. With that goal in mind, RICC has already experienced great success in educating young men and women from across the world and preparing them for the rigours of university. This year, 100% of students received acceptance to universities across Canada as well as in the United States and England.

  • While the opportunities we present are beneficial and rewarding to the students, this close-knit environment is also very rewarding to teach in; as this semester ended, I had a student thank me for making math interesting. I believe with our commitment to student growth and community, our students will continue to succeed and will view their time at RICC as instrumental in achieving their dreams.

  • RICC is dedicated to student growth and we work with these students, again, one on one, in our mentorship program. R.I.C.C is dedicated, ambitious, and passionate. With these qualities, we will continue to yield successful results as will the many students that come to our educational institution.

  • RICC has done a marvelous job fostering an unique and engaging experience for students to achieve their full potential. RICC has developed a positive atmosphere where students can learn and grow in a comfortable setting with educators that care deeply about student success.

    On the science contests held by the University of Waterloo for senior physics and chemistry, students placed highly in both disciplines, including a student finishing in the 80th percentile out of over 2000 contestants worldwide on each contest.

  • Sc. Honours, Biology/History B. Ed.
  • From academic contests, to holiday celebrations and school field trips, students were provided with opportunities that encouraged collaboration, leadership and cooperation. The variety of activities allowed some students to showcase their skills while others were able to try something out of the ordinary or learn something new.
  • Adam Nash
  • Teacher
  • B.A. History/Phys Ed., B. Ed.
  • I saw students achieve and go beyond their own expectations. The abilities of my students continue to amaze me even after 10 years of teaching. Seeing my students bravely act out scenes from “Death of a Salesman” or challenge themselves and write exquisite poetry, tells me that if you challenge students they will rise up to their ability and succeed.

The high university acceptance rates have been a strong indicator of the hard work, dedication, and motivation shared by both the staff and students of RICC.
