At SJR, we are proud of the achievements of our alumni and are pleased to spotlight a selection of their accomplishments.
Jordan Farber '96
“It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since graduating from SJR,” says Jordan Farber ’96. “It seems like just yesterday that Colin Kiddell was doing his ‘shirt-blazer trick’ at one of our Lower School assemblies.”
It truly is a testament to the strength of our community that our alumni continue to be as passionate and involved as they are in their years after graduation. We are proud to shine the spotlight on Hillary Samson ’86.
David Odhiambo '83 currently resides on O'ahu, Hawai'i, with his wife Carmen and two dogs. They are both Assistant Professors of English at the University of Hawai'i--West O'ahu. He is the author of four novels, and his latest, Smells Like Stars, was published by Book*hug in October. The novel was selected by CBC Books as a work of Canadian fiction to watch for in the Fall of 2018.
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.
