St. John’s College Junior College was founded in 1952 as a post-secondary institution offering programs that are generally the equivalent of the first two years of a four-year baccalaureate programme. The Junior College consists of the overall body of students and faculty who are overseen by the dean.
St. John’s College Junior College is a Belizean, Catholic, tertiary institution in the Jesuit Tradition. Through its commitment to God, academic excellence, humanity and service, St. John’s College Junior College aims to foster an atmosphere of respect, growth, and spiritual awareness that will promote the development of multifaceted individuals who love and care for themselves and others, their environment and their community. St. John’s College Junior College offers to traditional and non-traditional students an education that challenges the intellect and fosters the development of men and women in the service of others.
Mission and Identity is a shared responsibility at SJC Junior College. Recognizing that holistic development of students requires coordinated effort and multiple approaches, Mission and Identity is infused in all areas of college life. Offices from which Mission and Identity programs, services and activities derive include the Student Affairs Office, Campus Ministry Office, Academic Affairs Office, Academic Departments, Dean’s Office and President’s Office.
May the values you have gained, the experiences you have lived and the knowledge you have acquired be guiding forces as you strive for excellence and fulfillment remembering always your commitment to God, country and family.
To our returning students, I implore you not to let time pass by idly. Take full advantage of your time away from school to enhance your knowledge and your skills with the objective of greater achievements in the coming academic year. Success demands an unwavering determination to become better people than we are today and even greater people than we think we can be. I encourage you to seek out that preference by improving who you are and becoming a cause for good, a cause for development, a cause for prosperity, and most importantly, a cause for Belize.
Lastly, I want to thank those people who make St. John’s the special place that it is today, those people who, throughout the year, give of themselves unselfishly with the sole purpose of providing a holistic educational experience based on cura personalis – our faculty. The profession of a teacher is a challenging one, especially in these evolving times, but they spare no effort in ensuring that our students are endowed with the education, the values and the lessons they deserve. For this and for all that you, the faculty, do for our students, for our parents and for our institution, St. John’s College and I greatly thank you.
Mrs. Solangel Alvarado
Dean, St. John's College Junior College
It gives me great pride to pen these words because I have no doubt that within these pages are contained the faces of many of our future leaders, educators, professionals, clergy and parents, some of who will leave us this year whilst others will remain to continue their educational development.
To those of you who now venture unto another stage of your life, I congratulate you for the dedication, determination and hard work, which you have given these past two years. I also take this time to wish you the utmost success in your future endeavours.
Everything students need to stay connected to their academic and
extracurricular experience at the Junior College.
