Established in 2007, St. Joseph's Institution International offers a holistic, values-driven and international educational experience to a diverse student body of 40 nationalities rooted in the context of Singapore.
As a school with a Lasallian Catholic foundation, our community welcomes students, teachers, parents, friends and supporters of all faiths and cultural backgrounds. Our mission is to enable students to learn how to learn and learn how to live, empowering them to become people of integrity and people for others. Our core Lasallian values are central to everything that we do: spirituality, mutual respect, internationalism, leadership, experiences and service.
Today, we celebrate a community of 1,900 students across two schools on one campus. The Elementary School offers the International Primary Curriculum for pre-school Prep 1 - 2 (ages 4 turning 5 - 6) and Grade 1 - 6 (ages 7 - 12), while the High School offers the IGCSE followed by the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 7 - 12 (ages 12 - 18).
The IB Diploma Programme
The attributes of the IB Learner profile underpin much of the teaching and learning throughout SJI International with a desire to develop curious, independent and confident learners. The most important principle within the school's educational philosophy is that of active learning. Crucially, active learning is about students doing. This involves a wide range of activities within the programme which will vary according to the subject: research, role plays, simulations, thinking exercises, decision-making exercises, debates, presentations and so on. These provide a stimulating educational environment and one that is intellectually challenging for the students.
Values, education and character-building are achieved through a range of challenging activities in sports, adventure and creativity, with a special emphasis on service, featuring weekly service activities and overseas projects that help students connect with and serve the local and global community.
We are justifiably proud of the outstanding achievements of our IB Diploma students. Many of our graduates have continued their studies at many of the top universities around the world. But outstanding academic results are only part of what we strive for. Our students leave SJI International ready for lifelong learning.
