President's Message

S. J. C. Three legendary letters. One extraordinary address.

Welcome to Saint John’s College, a college of demonstrated excellence.

Founded in 1887 by Jesuit priests, S.J.C. is one of the oldest, largest and most diverse educational institutions in Belize, with nearly 2,000 students and over 125 faculty, administrators and staff.

Whether you wish to learn in the finest facilities or gain invaluable experience through new challenges and emerging disciplines, some of Belize’s most gifted and devoted educators are waiting for you.

Three unique campuses and communities – S.J.C. High School, S.J.C. Junior College, and St. John's College – combine to make St. John’s College the premier Belizean Catholic Jesuit institution.

We provide high quality instruction in an applied learning environment, comprehensive student services and development support, financial aid through the Landivar Scholarship Program, and vigorous academic and athletic programs in business and economics, social science, math and natural science, humanities, education, and computer science.

S. J. C. offers a variety of outstanding programs and distinguished concentrations that meet your needs and interests. Disciplines can be pursued at various levels that lead to certificates or diplomas, associate degrees, and through the College and/or partnering Jesuit universities, undergraduate and graduate degrees. Students can access undergraduate degrees from St. John's College starting August 2023. 

Anchored in our rich history and tradition are the twin goals of excellence in learning and excellence in engagement. We are guided by one all-embracing, all-encompassing rule: quality matters. Once you come, you know.

Educational institutions do not exist in a vacuum. They are influenced by myriad societal expectations and events that are constantly changing. We have Big Dreams and Bold Plans to dramatically alter the nature of the teaching and learning process.

We trust you will be embraced with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, an abundance of programs and activities, first-class educators, ambitious and talented students, and a campus acclaimed for its excellence, quality, safety, beauty and service.

Thank you for choosing Saint John’s College and do remain connected with us. I invite your inquiries at or or 223-3732; S. J. C. Junior College at or 223-3731; S. J. C. High School at or 223-3733.

President, Mrs. Mirtha Peralta, announces the roll out of the Bachelor's Degree programs at St. John's College starting August 2023.
