Founded in 1905, Rosthern Junior College (RJC High School) has a strong reputation for delivering well-rounded academic experiences to students for over 100 years. RJC offers Grades 10-12, and is accredited by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education and a member of the Saskatchewan Association of Historical High Schools; holding a high standard of education. As a high school that teaches from the Christian perspective, RJC places value on faith, service, leadership, and community in the education of its students.
Learning at Rosthern Junior College during COVID-19
What learning looks like now: Over the past several weeks RJC High School has successfully shifted to an online and distance learning program to ensure that our students are able to continue their studies and meet their academic goals. Utilizing internet-based platforms and virtual tools, learning spaces now exist for students to engage. with school remotely.
While it has always been true that RJC offers far more than academics, the current crisis is an inflection point that brings that to the fore. Right now, our students need comfort and compassion. We have prioritized regular connections with teachers and classmates through weekly chapels, phone call check-ins, and virtual choirs. We have already observed a positive impact on student well-being through initiatives like this. Ultimately, this student-oriented approach to online and distance earning ensures that RJC is nurturing the development of the whole student in the context of a supportive, Christ-centred community.
RJC offers bus transferring.
Service options offered are airport pick-up, regular rider, regular rider AM only, regular rider PM only, occasional rider, door-to-door pickup .

Additional notes: We offer a shuttle service to pick up students around the area for $100/month
A.L.S.O - Alternative Learning & Service Opportunities. This cornerstone program allows students to leave the classroom to experience and learn about various understandings of faith and social justice. Students have the opportunity to travel to Guatemala, Calgary, Toronto, and Saskatoon.
Spring Musical Production - This is one of the biggest events at RJC during the school year. Each year RJC performing arts will perform a full broadway musical, which is seem by approximately 900 people each year. Students are able to develop their musical abilities while also creating a sense of community during this event.
Grade-based programs - Each grade explores a theme throughout the year that helps students build connections between the academic disciplines. The Grade 10 IMAGINE class considers the theme of peacebuilding. Grade 11 THRIVE considers the theme of relationship development. Grade 12 EXPLORE considers the theme of leadership development, with a particular focus on post-secondary education.
Dormitory - The on-campus school dormitory is a space for students to make their home. Living on campus with other students can help develop leadership and independent living skills. There are also a number of fun activities planned by the dormitory staff for students to create friendships and develop a sense of community.
Student/Teacher relationship - At RJC students call teachers and staff by their first names. We believe this helps create a sense of belonging and eliminate barriers between students and staff, while also encouraging collaborative education.
Educating the Whole Student - At RJC we focus on teaching more than just academics; we encourage students to explore their artistic, athletic, emotional, and spiritual abilities.
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.

Central to your child's school experience is the underlying curriculum taught in the classroom. "Curriculum" refers to both what is taught and how it's taught. When considering the different curricula outlined in the next few pages, keep in mind that few schools fall neatly into one category or another. Most schools' curricula comprise a blend of best practices drawn from multiple curriculum types. Having said that, most schools do have a general overall curriculum type. These are identified for each school on OurKids.net.
Curriculum approach at RJC: Progressive
RJC has a Progressive approach to Curriculum (as opposed to Traditional, Liberal Arts, Montessori, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf approach).
[Show: About Progressive?]
Progressive (sometimes called "in- quiry-based") curricula attempt to place children's interests and ideas at the heart of the learning experience. Instead of lessons being driven by predetermined pathways, progressive curricula are often "emergent", with learning activities shaped by students' questions about the world. Instead of starting with academic concepts and then tying it to everyday experience, progressive methods begin with everyday experience and work back to an academic lesson. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources to help students investigate a topic or issue. Students are encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers or solutions.
Curriculum at schools on OurKids.net
Progressive - 27%   Traditional - 44%   Liberal arts - 17%   Montessori - 10%   Reggio Emilia - 1%   Waldorf - 1%
What RJC says: All academic programs at RJC meet curricular standards set by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education.
IMAGINE - Grade 10
Imagine a Better World
IMAGINE is a full year, multi-credit grade 10 global-citizenship program that emphasizes collaboration, hands-on learning and community building. Students will spend periods of time outside the classroom applying their classroom learning in practical settings.
THRIVE - Grade 11
Live Your Values
THRIVE is a Grade 11 character development program that will assist students to grow and develop as individuals and as contributing members of their communities.
EXPLORE - Grade 12
Discover Your Potential
EXPLORE is a grade 12 leadership program focused on exploring post-secondary opportunities.
These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.
Mathematics at schools on OurKids.net
Equal balance - 69%   Traditional math - 28%   Discovery math - 3%
What RJC says: Each mathematics teacher has his or her own classroom dynamic and structure. Our methods are rooted in traditional learning and an understanding of fundamental math skills. Inquiry activities and problem-based lessons are integrated throughout the courses as is appropriate for students' needs and abilities.
Textbooks and supplementary materials: As a school we use the textbooks developed for the latest provincial math curriculum.
Calculator policy: Math teachers ask students to own a calculator suited to his or her course choice. We encourage students to use their calculator as an aide to their education.
Teaching approach: All of our science teachers have years of experience in their content areas and are accredited in 30 level subject matter. Our school is transitioning to more inquiry-based and authentic learning in all areas and our newly renovated labs, as well as off-campus experiences help to support this type of education.
These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.
Literature at schools on OurKids.net
Equal balance - 77%   Traditional - 20%   Social justice - 3%
What RJC says: In each of our ELA courses students encounter a variety of texts in both contemporary and "classic" styles, the study of which always emphasizes the development of critical thinking and communication skills. Off-campus and inquiry-based experiences are used to expand the students' framework for authentic learning.
What RJC says: Given RJC’s emphasis on faith, service, and peacemaking, courses in the humanities and social sciences emphasize contemporary experiences and real-world problems. With a firm grounding in the way the past continues to shape the present, students are engaged with relevant questions about the condition of communities at home and around the world. The use of projects and tasks as primary assessment tools reflect our underlying goals of critical thinking and real-life skills.
What RJC says: RJC’s Spanish 10 course is offered to all grade 10 students as an opportunity to practice learning an additional language. With an emphasis on conversation, students participate in activities and games designed to improve language learning skills and build confidence. A global awareness component also introduces students to contemporary issues facing the Spanish-speaking world. Ultimately, Spanish 10 invites students to try learning a new language in a relaxed and safe environment.
Creative arts programs are studio-driven. While historical works and movements may still be taught to add context to the program, students mainly engage in making art (visual, musical, theatrical, etc). The goal is use the actual practice of art to help educate students’ emotions, cognition, and ethos.
What RJC says: Fine arts allow students to tap into their own creativity, develop strong communication skills and connect cross-curricular ideas in new ways. In many of the fine arts offered at RJC, students must learn to work together and for each other, requiring trust and reliance upon other students (ex. Putting together a play requires communicating ideas, teamwork to build sets, choral singing necessitates interdependence to create a fully-formed musical idea). Fine arts allow for a physical expression of mental, emotion and spiritual themes and ideas and so students should be allowed to access these internal feelings and to express them in ways that they may not feel able in other, “traditional” classrooms. This promotes self-agency, requires self-motivation and fosters co-operation. In this way, fine arts do not only improve skills within themselves, but impart students with the skills and tools to thrive in all areas of life.
A major effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy throughout the curriculum and in everything students do. Digital literacy is understood to be a fundamental skill in the 21st century: it therefore follows, the idea goes, that teachers should find ways to connect every lesson back to technology. Effort is made to ensure the use of technology is meaningful and advances students’ skills beyond what they would otherwise be from using computers outside the classroom.
Computers and Technology at schools on OurKids.net
Heavy integration - 34%   Light integration - 18%   Medium integration - 48%
What RJC says: In Communication Media Class, the students are taught to use the computer as a creative tool in digital picture creation/manipulation, movie making, and audio engineering. Students use all three elements to produce digital media creations in class.
What RJC says: Rosthern Junior College’s physical education program seeks to combine skill development with engagement and participation in physical activity. Our goals include promoting attitudes which will lead to lifelong physical activity, engaging students in volunteer activities, and fostering safe conduct in physical activities. We are less focused on competition, and more focused on community and team building. The grade 11 class participates in outdoor education, which usually takes the form of either a hiking trip or a canoe trip.
What RJC says: RJC’s core mandate lies in preparing students for a life of faith, service, and peacemaking. To accomplish this, students are invited to consider and reflect on the biblical account, especially the importance and example of Jesus. Emphasis is placed on living out one’s values, and frequent service opportunities are provided to students. Through the Alternative Learning and Service Opportunities (ALSO) program, students partner with communities throughout North and Central America to respond to issues of injustice. RJC’s approach to religious instruction is invitational and open to discussion; all are welcome.
Sex and health education approach at RJC: Saskatchewan curriculum
RJC has a Saskatchewan curriculum approach to Sex and health education (as opposed to Does not follow prrovincialcurriculum approach).
[Show: About Saskatchewan curriculum?]
The structure, pacing, focus, and tone of the sex education curriculum reflects that of the provincial one, taught in public schools.
Sex and health education at schools on OurKids.net
Follows provincial curriculum - 55%   Does not follow prrovincial curriculum - 45%
Approach to sex and health education: Mostly value-neutral
RJC has a approach Mostly value-neutral (as opposed to Fairly value-based approach).
[Show: About Mostly value-neutral?]
By and large, students are taught about sex free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. The school doesn't impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on students when teaching sex and related issues.
What RJC says: This information is not currently available.
This refers to the rate at which students move through the curriculum (e.g., topics, textbook material, skills, etc.). Curriculum pace is often defined in comparison to provincial standards.
Curriculum Pace approach at RJC: Student-paced
RJC has a Student-paced approach to Curriculum Pace (as opposed to Standard-enriched, Accelerated approach).
[Show: About Student-paced?]
The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.
Through the collective mindset of teachers, administrators, students, and parents, each school develops and maintains its own academic culture. This generally relates to the norms and expectations created around academic performance. Many parents look to private schools because they want a specific type of culture. Some want a rigorous environment that will elevate their child to new heights. Others want a nurturing environment that will help their child develop a passion for learning.
Academic Culture approach at RJC: Supportive
RJC has a Supportive approach to Academic Culture (as opposed to Rigorous approach).
[Show: About Supportive?]
A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.
Academic Culture at schools on OurKids.net
Supportive - 49%   Rigorous - 51%
What RJC says: With a smaller size class, students are able to have more one-on-one opportunities with the teachers, and a tigher relationship with their classmates. The teachers get to know each student really well, both academically and personally, creating a stronger learning community.
Schools have specific goals regarding how they want their educate and develop their students. This is part of a school's overall philosophy or vision, which is contained in its mission statement. While they tend have several developmental aims, schools tend to priortize certain aims, such as intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional, or physical development.
Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
The goal is to cultivate "academically strong, creative and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions."
Secondary Developmental Priority: Social
The goal is to cultivate "socially aware and active citizens, motivated to change the world (or their community) for the better."
What RJC says: To be living and learning in this community, students will have the opportunity to be independent of their parents, and learn to live with other people. Through arts and sports, students are able to improve socially outside of the classroom, and gain support from the community.
Schools offer a wide range of approaches and services to support students with special needs. This may include individualized learning, one-on-one support, small classes, resource rooms, and learning aids. These supports may be provided in a number of different environments such as a dedicated special needs school or class, an integrated class, a withdrawal class, or a regular class with resource support or in-class adaptations.
RJC offers Indirect Support
Students remain in a regular classroom for the whole day; the teacher receives special training in accommodating special needs and/or learning disabled students.
Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation
Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties
Mild but clinically diagnosed ADHD:
Summary: We strive to work with students where they are at and modify our program to meet specific student needs. Building a relationship with the student is key to our success.
This is a learning disability that can limit a child's ability to read and learn. It can have a variety of traits. A few of the main ones are impaired phonological awareness and decoding, problems with orthographic coding, and auditory short-term memory impairment.
Auditory Processing Disorder (APD)
This is a sound differentiation disorder involving problems with reading, comprehension, and language.
This is a kind of specific learning disability in math. Kids with this math disorder have problems with calculation. They may also have problems with math-related concepts such as time and money.
This is a kind of specific learning disability in writing. It involves problems with handwriting, spelling, and organizing ideas.
Language Processing Disorder
This is characterized by having extreme difficulty understanding what is heard and expressing what one wants to say. These disorders affect the area of the brain that controls language processing.
Nonverbal Learning Disorders (NLD)
These involve difficulties interpreting non-verbal cues, such as facial expressions and body language. They're usually characterized by a significant discrepancy between higher verbal skills and weaker motor, visual-spatial, and social skills.
Visual Perceptual/Visual Motor Deficit
A characteristic seen in people with learning disabilities such as Dysgraphia or Non-verbal LD. It can result in missing subtle differences in shapes or printed letters, losing place frequently, struggles with cutting, holding pencil too tightly, or poor eye/hand coordination.
Refers to a range of conditions that involve challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, and speech and nonverbal communication. They also involve unique strengths and differences. For instance, there are persons with both low- and high-functioning autism (some claim the latter is identical to Asperger's syndrome).
On the autism spectrum, Asperger's is considered quite mild in terms of symptoms. While traits can vary widely, many kids with Asperger's struggle with social skills. They also sometimes fixate on certain subjects and engage in repetitive behaviour.
his is associated with impairment of cognitive ability and physical growth, and a particular set of facial characteristics.
This is a condition characterized by significant limitations in intellectual functioning (e.g., reasoning, learning, and problem solving). Intellectual disabilities are also known as general learning disabilities (and used to be referred to as a kind of mental retardation).
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is an umbrella term used to describe the range of effects that can occur in an individual whose mother consumed alcohol during pregnancy. These may include growth deficits, facial anomalies, and damage to the central nervous system, which can lead to cognitive, behavioural, and other problems.
roubled teens tend to have problems that are intense, persistent, and can lead to quite unpredictable behaviour. This can lead to behavioural and emotional issues, such as drug and alcohol abuse, criminal behaviour, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety.
This is a mental health disorder also called "major depression." It involves persistent feelings of sadness, loss, and anger. According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms are usually severe enough to cause noticeable problems in relationships with others or in daily activities, such as school, work, or one's social life.
This is a mood disorder involving intense, relentless feelings of distress and fear. They can also have excessive and persistent worry about everyday situations, and repeated episodes of intense anxiety or terror.
This involves persistent thoughts about ending one's life.
Drug and alcohol abuse
This involves the excessive use of drug and/or alcohol, which interferes with daily functioning.
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
This is a disruptive behavioural disorder which normally involves angry outbursts, often directed at people of authority. This behaviour must last continuously for six months or more and significantly interfere with daily functioning.
This is a condition of the central nervous system. It affects the brain, optic nerves, and spinal cord. Symptoms can include fatigue, loss of motor control, memory loss, depression, and cognitive difficulties.
his refers to a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. CP is caused by abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance, and posture.
Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular disorder which weakens the body's muscles. Causes, symptoms, age of onset, and prognosis vary between individuals.
This is a condition present at birth due to the incomplete formation of the spine and spinal cord. It can lead to a number of physical challenges, including paralysis or weakness in the legs, bowel and bladder incontinence, hydrocephalus (too much fluid in the brain), and deformities of the spine.
Dyspraxia (Developmental Coordination Disorder)
This is a Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Also known as "sensory integration disorder," it affects fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults. It may also affect speech.
Visual impairment is a decreased ability or inability to see that can't be fixed in usual ways, such as with glasses. Some people are completely blind, while others have what's called "legal blindness."
Hearing impairment, also known as "hearing loss," is a partial or total inability to hear. The degree of hearing impairment varies between people. It can range from complete hearing loss (or deafness) to partial hearing loss (meaning the ears can pick up some sounds).
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited genetic condition, which affects the body's respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems. It affects young children and adults.
Accommodating a wide range of physical conditions and disabilities.
Schools support students with gifted or advanced learning abilities in a several ways. Whether they offer a full-time gifted program or part-time support, they normally provide some form of accelerated learning (delivering content at a faster pace) or enrichment (covering content more broadly or deeply). Many schools also offer a wide range of in-class adaptations to support advanced learners, such as guided independent studies, project-based learning, and career exploration.
Dedicated gifted programs:
Full-time gifted program (parallel to rest of school)
Part-time gifted program (pull-out; parallel to rest of class)
Curriculum delivery: Acceleration and enrichment (There is an equal emphasis on acceleration and enrichment.)
Homework is work that's assigned to students for completion outside of regular class time. There's a long-standing debate over homework. Should homework be assigned to school-age children? If so, in what grades? And how much homework should be assigned? In selecting the right school for your child, it's important to look closely at a school's homework policy.
In grade Gr. 12, RJC students perform an average of >2 hours of homework per night.
This school frequently "flips the classroom": asks students to learn material at home and do the "homework" in-class (with teacher support).
What RJC says about their flipped classroom policy: This information is not currently available.
While all schools measure individual progress and achievement in students, they have different ways of doing this. For instance, many traditional schools gauge progress through report cards, which give students lettered or numbered grades. Other schools, meanwhile, measure progress in other ways, either in addition to or instead of giving grades. For instance, they may offer prose-based feedback (i.e, comments), academic achievement reporting, habits and behaviour reporting, and parent-teacher meetings. In choosing the right school for your child, take a close look at its policy for measuring the individual progress of students.
While academics remain the priority for most private schools, many also place a strong focus on a well-rounded education and encourage participation in extracurricular activities such as sports, music, arts, or clubs. Involvement in extracurriculars helps stimulate students in their studies, makes them more motivated to learn, and can make school more enjoyable and fulfilling. Extracurricular activities can also provide students with a much-needed break from the stresses of academics, while helping them to develop skills and allowing them to take part in valuable social situations.

This can depend on a number of factors, including the type of school, living arrangements, what’s included in tuition, school location, resources, and facilities. Many private schools in Canada have tuition that ranges between $6,000 and $12,000 a year. While some schools, such as schools which provide room and board, can be more expensive, many of these schools provide ways to defray the costs of tuition. For instance, they may offer merit-based scholarships or needs-based financial aid (often referred to as “bursaries” or “subsidies”).

Private schools come in all shapes and sizes. Some larger schools have enrolment numbers in the thousands, while some smaller schools have only a few dozen students. Boarding schools tend to be on the larger side, while alternative schools, such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, and Waldorf, are normally smaller. Besides the overall size of school, there are other important facts you’ll want to know about a school’s enrolment. For instance, here you can learn about a school’s enrolment for separate streams (if they have them), such as day and boarding, its average class size, and its average enrolment per grade.

Private schools in Canada have admissions policies. All schools have some required application materials, though these vary between schools. These may include letters of application, application fees, essays, and exams (such as the SSAT). Many schools also require interviews with prospective students, either with their parents, on their own, or both. Schools also have different standards and priorities when evaluating student applications, different acceptance rates (which may vary between grade levels), and target different kinds of students. To improve your child’s chances of acceptance, you should find out everything you can about a school’s admissions policies and how they assess applicants.

RJC is a Christian day and residence high school offering Grades 10-12. It is based on a Christian foundation and provides a sound academic and residential program. While about 40% of our students are from Mennonite background, the other 60% come from all walks of life. The school offers the Saskatchewan approved and inspected high school curriculum, and is staffed by highly qualified instructors. We are geared for students intending to continue their education; therefore, the smaller population of students lends itself to individualized attention. Many students and parents often identify this as being a significant factor in improving grades.
Where graduates of a school do their post-secondary studies can be an important factor in choosing a private school. Do you want your child to go to a Canadian university, an Ivy league school in the US, or some other institute? Regardless of your inclinations, take a look at a school’s university placement record, and the services they offer to support university applications and decisions.
