About St Joseph's Institution International School & Elementary School

SJI International High School opened its doors in 2007, and was followed in 2008 by SJI International Elementary School. Together they are part of a group of seven Lasallian schools in Singapore with a history dating back to 1852.

The realisation of the vision of SJI International was a labour of love for a team of SJI Alumni, who, having benefitted so profoundly from their own education at Saint Joseph's Institution (SJI), one of Singapore's oldest and most respected schools, then sought a way to offer Singaporean and expatriate children a similar life-changing experience.

Our School is a non-profit organisation, overseen by the SJI International Board of Governors, comprising SJI alumni. The School's patrons are Dr Tony Tan, Mr. Teo Chee Hean, Mr. Mah Bow Tan and Mr. George Yeo. 

Saint Joseph’s Institution, a Catholic school founded by the De La Salle Christian Brothers in 1852, embodies the tradition of St John Baptist de La Salle, the French priest who, in 1680, started this order of religious Brothers to provide education for poor boys in France. It welcomes students of all faiths to be part of its inclusive community. From its inception the brotherhood has been dedicated to bringing education to all, especially 'the last, the lost and the least'. Its cornerstone values are faith, community and service. Today there are 4,450 Lasallian brothers and 50,000 Lasallian teachers, working in 80 countries around the world. SJI has been notable over the years for its capacity to develop leaders of Singapore society, including members of the current government. Underpinning the remarkable success of SJI has been the role played by the De La Salle Christian Brothers. They place a major emphasis on the need to give special care to each student and are held in the highest possible esteem by generations of SJI old boys.

At SJI International we are driven by the same values as SJI even though we differ in several respects, not least because of our fully co-educational, pre-university and international dimensions. The schools share a common mission: Enabling students, within a Lasallian community, to learn how to learn and to learn how to live, empowering them to become people of integrity and people for others.
