St. Joseph’s Institution International (SJI International) is a non-profit co-educational school proud of its Lasallian Catholic foundation. The school offers a holistic, values-driven and international educational experience to a diverse student body of over 40 nationalities rooted in the context of Singapore. Celebrating a community of over 2,000 students across two schools on one campus, SJI International welcomes students, teachers, parents, friends and supporters of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.
Founded in 2007, SJI International is one of just three schools in Singapore with a licence to educate both Singaporean and international students together. Drawing upon the best practices of leading international schools, alongside the ethos of their global network of Lasallian schools, the school has gained an outstanding reputation for quality education and trust.
SJI International is also renowned for its commitment to character education which lies at the heart of the school. Core values of Faith, Service, Community, Excellence and Respect are demonstrated daily by the whole school community, be it within the classrooms, playgrounds, theatre, music rooms or sporting facilities.
Highly experienced and nurturing teachers create an environment where children feel safe, inspired and supported. Students are empowered to become resilient and critical thinkers, to develop their own curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, as well as to recognise excellence and how to achieve it.
Another fundamental part of an SJI International education is learning through ‘Service’. All students are given opportunities to support a range of charities and organisations, going beyond their self-interests and serving the needs of others. These activities promote an appreciation of the world, develop skills and understanding that are driven by experience, and create significant opportunities for personal development.

Students have a wealth of CCA options in the High School. Our CCA programme enables students to develop an understanding of themselves and others, as well as build resilience and a desire to learn in different contexts. We encourage our students to select activities that will allow them to build life-long passions and interests they may wish to pursue as part of a healthy and creative lifestyle.
Throughout the year we also celebrate, raise awareness, and much-needed funds for other charities in Singapore and abroad. Once children reach the Upper Elementary School, they start working towards their CASS Awards. This stands for Community, Activity, Sport and Service and is used to encourage children to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and give up their time to help others both in our school community and beyond. For each badge at Bronze and Silver levels, children have to carry out 3 acts of Service, such as a sponsored event or volunteer for a day. Those children who reach the Gold level have to plan and carry out their independent service project, making contacts with agencies and working out the logistics of supplies.
In High School, all students are involved in regular direct service activities from Grades 7 to 12. Tutors or service leaders supervise all service projects. As students progress through High School, they are given more opportunities to voice their perspectives and select the projects that are of their interest. However, they are encouraged to be actively engaged in each stage of service learning (investigation, preparation, action, reflection and demonstration) at all grade levels.
