CELEBRATING 130 YEARS OF CARING
At Olivet School, we focus on creating a warm, caring environment for our students through small class sizes and integrating Christian values and character development into all that we do.
Our teachers build a solid character education by cultivating each student’s gifts and talents, encouraging them to work to the best of their potential, and inspiring them to be caring, honest, and considerate individuals.
Founded in 1893, Olivet School is a private, not-for-profit elementary school located in central Etobicoke, in Toronto’s west end. Our rich history has provided young minds with the opportunity to grow academically and spiritually, while preparing them for future success.
If you seek personalized attention, a safe and supportive learning environment, and the development of a strong character as priorities for your child’s education, then Olivet School is the answer. Book a tour today to learn more about our unique caring approach to education.
Before becoming pastor at Olivet Church, Jon spent years as our assistant pastor. In between roles, he travelled and served many congregations in Canada, the US, and South Korea. Meeting new people and diverse cultures are among the experiences Jon is thankful for and has enjoyed.
In addition to his Master of Divinity degree from Bryn Athyn College of the New Church, he holds a doctorate degree in philosophy. He is interested in Kant’s moral theory, Confucianism, Daoism, and comparative philosophy.
In his personal life, Jon is the proud father of four.
Notwithstanding the remote digital learning, the output and quality of teaching materials and instruction remains impressively and remarkably intact from the Olivet teaching staff! We are incredibly grateful to you, and all of the Olivet staff, for the steadfast guidance in the Lord’s word and enrichment of the children’s spiritual teachings and intellectual development. In our family’s humble opinion, the ups and downs of using technology for our children’s schooling are but a small price for being the beneficiaries of Olivet’s storied legacy of spiritual and intellectual education. Mrs. Wilson, you, and the rest of Olivet teachers are unstoppable!
