Discover Academic Excellence at SJK

Go Beyond.

SJK has a long history of academic excellence, with an unwavering commitment to student engagement. We know that an integrated approach and a love of learning are the best ways to meet the needs and expectations of our students.

Our International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes provide a solid academic foundation for our students right from Junior Kindergarten through to the end of Grade 12.

Students are encouraged to be knowledgeable, communicators, inquirers, thinkers, balanced, risk-takers, caring, principled, reflective, and open-minded. Together, these ten characteristics are known as the IB Learner Profile.

In addition to having authorization to deliver the IB Programme, SJK is also accredited by Ontario Ministry of Education and the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS), and is a member of the Conference of Independent Schools of Ontario (CIS).

Specialized teachers use innovative approaches to learning and collaborating, in technology-rich environments, preparing our students for their post-secondary studies. We are committed to equipping our students with a new kind of thinking in local and global contexts. Travelling abroad with the Five Worlds Program, experiential learning and service projects enrich the learning experience realized through the global classroom.

Our dynamic and diverse co-curricular program helps develop the whole child and extends learning beyond the School's gates. The community has the opportunity to try new things, discover passions and learn the value of different perspectives and cultures.
