St. Joseph’s Institution International

St Joseph’s Institution International’s mission is to enable youth to learn how to learn, and to learn how to live, empowering them to become people of integrity and people who care for others.

Founded in January 2007, St. Joseph’s Institution International (SJI International) is one of just three schools in Singapore with a licence to educate both Singaporean and international students. We aim to offer a values-driven international educational experience within the context of the Catholic faith and the local community. To do so, we draw upon the best practice of some of the leading international schools in the world as well as the ethos of the global network of Lasallian schools.

Consistent with our Catholic and Lasallian ethos, at SJII we continually evaluate all our processes against our values. These are the six pillars of our institution: Spirituality, Mutual Respect, Internationalism, Leadership, Experiences and Service.

The school aims to nurture students who:

are sensitive and considerate in their dealings with other people; lack prejudice and are enterprising in establishing relations with people who are different from them;
are willing to lead and to accept responsibility in society, particularly in order to serve others; are risk-takers, willing to seek challenging experiences that will facilitate their personal growth; strive to make full use of their talents.

We are committed to developing our students to become thinking and caring global citizens who are at the same time securely rooted in their community, share common values and have a genuine spiritual awareness.

Programs Available
Extra Curricular Activities
From the rhythm of dance and music, to the grit of soccer and rock climbing, and intra-and inter-school competitions, there are ample opportunities for students to develop talent, share passions and even initiate their own activities. In total there are more than 50 activities on offer each week.
Enrichment Activities
The school currently supports 40 different service activities, including local community events and overseas projects that provide opportunities to engage with various communities. These activities promote an appreciation of the world, develop skills and understanding that are driven by experience, and create significant opportunities for personal development. The experience of outdoor education provides opportunities to learn through experience and develop resilience, determination and resolve. Self-discipline and team work are challenged during these residential activities where students step out of their comfort zones and support others around them. Students gain confidence in their own abilities, discover innovative ways to overcome obstacles, and turn challenges into positive life experiences. Our Grade 7, 8, 9 students participate in week-long expeditions overseas, while Grade 11 students plan and implement the milestone tradition of Challenge Week, where they travel to another country to serve a charity of their choice as a self-organised group. Other educational trips and personal development programmes - like the National Youth Achievement Award - are encouraged, challenging students' learning as far as they are willing to go.
