> About SJR
Founded in 1820, St. John's-Ravenscourt School is a university-preparatory school for boys and girls. We offer a day program for students in Grades K – 12 and boarding for students in Grades 8 – 12.
Within an enviable environment of smaller class sizes with a low student/teacher ratio, SJR’s faculty and staff successfully encourage the development of social, emotional, physical and academic skills, as well as promoting independence, decision-making abilities and a positive self-concept.
In the SJR community emphasis is placed on community values, generosity, respect and the understanding of others; these values are interwoven throughout the development of intellectual and scholastic pursuits.
As one of Canada's leading independent schools, SJR has a consistent record of achievement. To date, SJR 's debating and public speaking program has an unprecedented record of wins at 14 out of 25 World Championships. We have produced 18 Rhodes scholars and numerous athletes who have competed at national and international levels, including the Olympics. Our graduates receive top scholarships and go on to study in prestigious universities around the world.
