Board of Governors
The Board and its membership have three core responsibilities:
To preserve the Vision, Mission and Values of the School and to ensure that all aspects of the School arise from them through sound policy governance; to ensure financial planning and management which focuses on, protects and helps create SJR’s future; and to support, evaluate, and nurture the Head of School.
SJR is proud to be accredited and affiliated with several local, national and international educational organizations.
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
