Welcome to St. Andrew Junior School! 

The staff at SAJS is preparing for a great 2022-23 school year and are very much looking forward to greeting students on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.

SAJS is a Grade 5-8 school that offers students a host of amazing opportunities for personal development and growth as they continue their educational journey through junior high. Our primary responsibility is student well-being, success and achievement in a positive, safe and inclusive learning environment where all students are offered educational opportunities that will maximize their potential.

With students arriving at SAJS from feeder schools in Grade 5 (AEC), and Grades 7 (SAC and HM MacDonald), as well as from a variety of settings both nationally and internationally, SAJS offers a wide range of programming to support our students in their transition from elementary school to a middle school/junior high setting. SAJS offers a variety of instructional streams, with options for French Immersion, Core French, Core Gaelic and Intensive French.  We also offer a wide range of hands-on learning opportunities especially designed for the junior high learner beginning in Grades 7 and 8 including Outdoor Education, Yoga, Technology Education (Textiles, Food Studies, Woodshop, Brilliant Lab, etc.) in addition to extracurricular offerings ranging from inter-school Sports and Intramurals to Band and a variety of clubs.  There is something for everyone at SAJS!

For students new to SAJS, school tours will be offered on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. until noon. Please contact our School Counsellor, Marie Kennedy at [email protected] should you have any questions about the tours.  

Parent and guardians are welcome to visit the school on our upcoming Meet the Teacher night, which will be taking place on Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This will provide a great opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and put faces to names as we work together to ensure that this school year is a successful one for all students. 

Parent and guardians are also asked to consider joining our School Advisory Council (SAC). Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, at 6:30 p.m. at SAJS (conference room).
