Catholic Junior College (CJC)
is a junior college
, offering a two-year course for pre-university students leading up to GCE 'A' Level
examination. Founded in 1975, CJC was the third junior college established in Singapore. Its campus is located at Whitley Road, near one of its affiliated secondary schools, Saint Joseph's Institution
CJC was founded in 1975 by the Roman Catholic Archbishop
, Michel Olçomendy
in an effort to coordinate the pre-university education provided by the different Catholic schools, and provide all Catholic
schools with pre-university classes. All students enrolled in the fifteen Catholic
secondary schools in Singapore are given a two-point deduction from their 'O' Level L1R5 score when applying to CJC.
Junior College since its inception has always been led by Catholic
religious men and women. The first principal of CJC was Brother Patrick Loh, who moved from one of CJC's affiliated schools, Saint Joseph's Institution
, to head the college. CJC was headed by Brother Paul Rogers from 2002. He officially stepped down as Principal at the end of 2009 after eight years. Mrs Christine Anne Kong, the first lay person to helm the college, took over in 2010.
