In February 2013, SJR launched the Build Our Tomorrow Campaign — the most ambitious campaign in our history which supported the construction of the new Richardson Senior School and Riley Fitness Centre.
We are grateful to the many families and alumni who helped us to raise $13.5 million towards this project. Our sincere thanks to our donors who made a contribution to this campaign. A full list of donors can be viewed here.
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.
