Our Perspective

How we see Rosthern Junior College High School

Rosthern Junior College began in 1905 with one teacher and eight students and a desire to fill a need within the Mennonite community. It’s grown in every way, though remains true to the initial goal of educating students through their interests and through their faith. One aspect of RJCs development that the founders perhaps couldn’t have foreseen in 1905 is the extension of the offering to international students, who now make up 15% of the student population, adding a unique perspective to the lived experience of the school. While half of the population of the school is Mennonite, the other half includes other denominations and non-denominational students, all drawn by the range of programs on offer, the personal focus, a dedication to service learning and character development. Classes are small, with lots of personal attention, which students rightly appreciate. Faculty make it a priority to take learning out of the classroom, and to build relationships with the community, something that has become a focus of the programming. Students are encouraged not only to excel academically, but also to apply their skills, abilities, and time to making a difference in the world.

What do you do differently and uniquely well?

"A distinctive of RJC from other boarding high schools is our focus on cross-curricular and interdisciplinary learning. Our goal is for students to learn more about themselves and the world around them through the courses they take. This is done through our grade-based initiatives (Grade 10 IMAGINE, Grade 11 THRIVE, Grade 12 EXPLORE). In these programs, RJC utilizes academic best-practices and community partners to offer unique, out-of-the-classroom learning experiences."

To your knowledge, why do families choose your school over others?

"Families often choose RJC because of the tight-knit community and small class sizes. In this environment, students find belonging and grow in their confidence and ability. The strong relationships between students and staff often lead to academic and personal success of the students."

What aspect of your school is underappreciated?

"An underrated aspect of RJC's school community is our focus on student health and wellness. This is done through our student BELONG program, led by our dormitory deans. All RJC students have access to diverse academic, physical, and emotional supports during their time as a student. Included in this is an incredible meal plan, which offers healthy and diverse food options for students. If students require additional supports, they are welcome to connect with the VP of Student Life."

What might families find surprising about your school?

"The level of participation in school activities is very high at RJC. In a typical year, approximately 80% of our students are involved in the athletics program, 91% are involved in the music and arts program, and 80% of RJC students join a school club. We believe when students are invested and involved in activities they are able to thrive in all aspects of learning."
