University Advisement

As a university preparatory school, SJR offers comprehensive guidance on selecting post-secondary programs and institutions through our University Advisor.
Senior School course selection is managed by our University Advisor, ensuring that students are aware of the effects of their choices and are given insight and guidance to help them make well informed decisions. This process begins in Grade 8 providing students and parents with information and support as they prepare to enter Senior School.

Grade 12 students are provided with a university preparatory period once a school cycle and receive information and guidance on their upcoming advancement into post-secondary education. This non–credit course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the admissions and scholarship processes and to provide information and links relative to events at SJR, Canadian, American and international universities and colleges, and scholarships, as well as brief guides to university planning, interviews and visits.

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.
