Our son's experience at Rosthern Junior College was all encompassing. He received a high quality education in a small town setting that allowed him to exercise his independence and become a mature young adult. There were many weekends that he did not want to come home. He wanted to stay at school to enjoy the activities and friends that were there. He was a part of numerous sport teams, the choir and other extracurricular groups. Our son enjoyed being a part of the community of Rosthern. It is a very welcoming and multicultural town. The school and the community exposed our son to many cultures and traditions. He has close friends around the world.

Our daughter, the last of our three children (and that put a smile on some teachers’ faces), became more and more apprehensive, as the registration day drew closer. In fact, on our way there, she started protesting seriously (putting it mildly), lamenting the loss of her friends from the previous year and uncertain about being away from home. Her tears moved me, I have to admit. We expected a rather protracted and slow integration and assimilation into her new school and surroundings. Well, that lasted all of half a day, before she changed her mind and became fully immersed, just like her brothers before her. More seriously, our three children have very different personalities and we expected, in certain situations, that they might experience some conflict and stress. The supporting and nurturing atmosphere, however, negated or minimized potential pitfalls. The staff does an amazing job of keeping a keen eye on everyone, ironing out problems and communicating with the parents. The quality of “student life” of RJC students, I dare say, is far better than most students in other schools!

Although they have very different temperaments, both of our children loved attending RJC. Because students not only attend school during the day but also live together in the dorms they have a unique opportunity to know each other deeply through the ups and downs of life. We see the spirit of the students through the candid photographs on the walls of the school of class retreats, classroom, sports, rehearsals, dorm life, out of school learning, Alternative Learning and Service Opportunity (ALSO) weeks and social events. We also see the student enthusiasm and participation in the hundreds of photos on the school website of all the events the school puts on over the year. The Staff and Deans are always available to support and encourage students to learn to live together in safe and healthy ways.

We had to persuade our first son to go to RJC but after 3 weeks, he was convinced it was the best place for him and he moved into the dorms (he started as a day student taking the commuter shuttle, which was a very good way to start). Our second son simply stated two years prior, after seeing his brother's positive experience. Our sons had opportunities to do things they would never have been able to do in a large high school i.e. play on every sports team, sing in the choir, act in musicals, have fun in coffee houses, travel and do volunteer work globally, go on class retreats, become Student Co-President and the list goes on. In a big school, it's too easy to slip through the cracks and become invisible, but at RJC, one can find their gifts, test them, and grow. RJC offers friendship, belonging, relationship with teachers and staff, and development for the whole student --- emotional, physical, and spiritual. They learn independence in a safe and caring environment.
