  • Step 3: Interview

    Students and parents are invited to the School for an interview. Note: International students can be interviewed over Skype or in-person during one of our many international recruitment trips.

    * Please note that SJR admission decisions for day students begin in the middle of March each year. This allows us the time to assess students and conduct interviews. Parents are encouraged to apply by January so as to allow ample time to coordinate the admissions test/assessment and interview process. Kindergarten assessments are conducted in groups on one of the above Kindergarten assessment dates. Registration for the Kindergarten assessment dates begin in late January.

    * Boarding student admission decisions are made as students complete the admissions test and interview process.
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.
