We can also provide in person school tours. These are available in a group tour format for each of Junior School, Middle School and Senior School. Fill out an inquiry form and a member of our team will send you an email with a link to book a date to attend.

SJR's History

Who We Are

Book an appointment to talk with one of our admissions staff directly. If you have any questions email admissions@sjr.mb.ca or call 204.477.2400.

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.
