  • History & Memorable Moments

The National Junior College (Abbreviation: NJC) is a junior college (JC) in Singapore, located in the Bukit Timah neighbourhood. Founded in 1969 to provide a centralised two year pre-university education leading to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE 'A' Level certificate, NJC prides itself in being the top government junior college as well as a pioneer and first in many ways, including pioneering the introduction of a specialised lecture-tutorial system in its pedagogy as well as the merging of the various language streams. Since then, other junior colleges have been established with this same model to provide the same opportunity to many more aspiring students who aim to go on to top universities, both locally and overseas. Since its inception, NJC has been producing numerous scholars, including the prestigious President's Scholars, SAF and SPF scholars as well as recipients of various PSC, government, statutory boards and private scholarships among others. NJC has to date produced 45 President's Scholars, a record among Singapore schools only recently beaten by Singapore's second oldest junior college, Hwa Chong Institution, in 2007.[1]

From 2009, NJC will be among the first 5 Singapore schools to introduce a comprehensive boarding programme supported by the MOE for both its local and foreign students in a bid to complement student all-round development. As the first junior college to implement this boarding programme, NJC's programme will be modelled according to the needs of each cohort to allow the college to organise the whole school experience for a cohort around boarding. This involves designing timetables and programmes to enable studies, Co-Curricular and Service Activities, leadership development and other enrichment activities to be woven together into students’ regular schedule. Through the NJC Boarding Programme, there will also be more time and space for students to take on additional non-examinable academic subjects, such as philosophy, political science and anthropology. Students will be able to pursue intellectual topics of their interest or even design their own multidisciplinary subjects in a closely guided environment, mentored by teachers and housemasters.[1]
