> Home Away from Home
St. John's-Ravenscourt School's boarding program offers a home away from home for students for students from across Canada and around the world.
With a ratio of one resident staff for every four boarders, the program provides a tightly knit, family-like environment.
Boarding at SJR is open to both boys and girls in Grades 8 – 12. Students find our facilities offer a welcoming atmosphere with comfortable rooms and plenty of communal areas.
The girls’ area is located in the historic Thomson House, a lovely home that gives them their own space within the School. The boys stay in Burman and the recently upgraded Riverside residence, which offers lots of shared space as well as light-filled common areas.
Students eat in the dining hall alongside the day students. Meals are prepared with a view to maximum nutrition, high quality ingredients and above all, great taste!
Living in boarding offers an experience like no other—our program teaches independence, builds self-esteem, and provides a fun, active environment where character development and academic performance can thrive. Boarding at SJR uniquely prepares students, not only for university, but also for life well beyond academics.
