Justin BoyleHouse Director
Justin Boyle is the House Director for Runnymede School. In 1998 Justin (16 years old) was a student at a school similar to Runnymede where Mr. Brandon was one of his teachers. Mr. Brandon was very instrumental, together with God, in bringing Justin to repentance at this time in his life. Justin spent 2 years working as a mentor in another boarding school and found he had an affinity for working with boys who faced the same difficulties and temptations that he once faced. Justin also has 10 years experience in the construction field and in October, 2015 left a Project Manager position with a local Information Technology company to once again be able to work with troubled boys in need of direction in their lives. We are very thankful that God led him to partner with us at Runnymede. Justin has been married to his wife Yuko for 7 years and together have 5 children who she actively cares for and schools from home.
