It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the Sir John Thompson Catholic Junior High School Family. Parents, students, and staff have traditionally experienced and enjoyed a close working relationship at SJT as we believe this to be critical to the overall educational success of our students, your children.
Our Mission is truly lived and permeated on a daily basis as we celebrate our Catholic identity and our vision of Catholic Education. Further, we expect, on a yearly basis, to maintain or surpass the standard of excellence that our students consistently achieve in all our programs.
Our grade nine students have ranked in the top five of all Edmonton Catholic Junior High Schools in Provincial Achievement Exam results in all core subjects over the past five years. Our student Tell Them from Me survey and parent survey results indicate that our students and parents find the environment at SJT to be one inspiring, safe and caring, where students are respected and valued, and where student learning is paramount.
One should not assume that academics are the only focus at SJT. Our school has an excellent reputation for music, athletics and extra-curricular activities as well. As Tritons, boys' and girls' teams have many city championships to their credit. Further, we believe in a holistic education for our students where the psychological, emotional, and spiritual components of their adolescence are developed as well.
We look forward to working with you in helping your child achieve his/her highest potential.
Dr. Walter Kowalchyk
