We Shape Future Leaders
St. John School is proud to offer the LeaderinMe® process is based on program, which is based on Franklin Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, nurturing leadership skills in every child. The program began when a principal in the U.S. identified leadership as a critical skill based on community feedback. She, alongside FranklinCovey, developed a leadership model which drew on the 7 Habits: Be Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First to Understand and Then to Be Understood, Synergize, and Sharpen the Saw. Working with charities and local seniors is also part of how St. John School teaches children to play a positive role in the community. SJS recognizes that every child has the ability to lead and we foster an environment where they are supported and challenged to be the best person they can be. This process is an essential part of an education at St. John School. 

Natural Learning Environment

St. John Nature School is offered in many grades with a certified practitioner. This program takes advantage of the beautiful spaces offered in Northwestern Ontario. Nature School touches on all subjects and disciplines: in any given moment an experience can cut across math, science, art, language and physical education. Our students love exploring outdoors and seeing how the lessons they learned in their classroom can transfer out in nature. We are also fortunate to have a forest behind our school where the students and particularly the Kindergarteners can discover.
