Strategic Plan

To the Future with Hope

Strategic Plan

Our Students Soar, the SJS Strategic Plan, was launched in 2021 after extensive community consultation.

Our community members’ responses revealed common themes and they were distilled into five strategic goals: Connected Communities, Beyond Academics, Healthy Living, Exceptional Talent & Teams, and Long-Term Sustainability. You can learn more about the Strategic Plan and download a copy from this webpage.

Year in Review

The SJS Year in Review is published each year and provides a snapshot of the school year. It is a guide to our school; what we’ve accomplished and where we’re going in the future.

Inside you will find information that includes:

  • Highlights from the school year
  • Destination data on the graduating class
  • The contributions of our Parent, Staff and Alumni communities
  • Financial reporting
  • Annual Appeal impact and donor recognition

The Year in Review in English and Simplified Chinese can be downloaded from this webpage. Community members who wish to request a physical copy, please contact the Advancement team at

Strategic Plan Update

Each year the school publishes a more detailed summary of our accomplishments against the goals outlined by the Strategic Plan. This document is available as a download on mySJS for parents and staff.
