Grade 11: thrive

We believe that students learn best when they are engaged and involved in their own learning.

RJC’s Grade 11 THRIVE program provides unique out-of-the classroom experiences for our students, to help them meet curricular and personal goals. By emphasizing hands-on learning and inquiry, education at RJC equips students with learning that is relevant and meaningful.

“A highlight of the Grade 11 THRIVE program is the out-trip we get to take as a class. RJC is all about community and it felt like we really had the opportunity to bond as classmates and friends.”

– Kylee Warkentin, RJC student
