St Andrew's Junior College (SAJC) has its origins in St Andrew's School, which was founded in 1862 by the Anglican Diocese of Singapore. SAJC is an aided mission school which was started as a vision of faith when the Anglican Church took up the challenge of building a junior college in line with national educational developments in the 1970’s. The Lutheran and Presbyterian Churches also joined in the building project. The College began in 1978.
SAJC is a two-year co-educational institution that takes in top students from the year's cohort finishing their Singapore-Cambridge General Certification of Education (GCE) at Ordinary ‘O’ level (the equivalent to Year 10). The College prepares these students for the Singapore-Cambridge General Certification of Education at Advanced ‘A’ level.
The College’s vision is to be a Home of Servant Leaders who bring life to the Nations. The College believes in nurturing Saints who are principled servant-leaders, upholding the WISE and TRUE values that define who we are and how we act when we stand together as a village.
Besides attaining academic success, its students also excel in co-curricular activities. Many of the sports are placed in the top 4 positions at the national championship competitions. The performing arts groups also clinch distinction awards at the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation. In addition, the students make an indelible impact in serving the less fortunate and needy members of the communities, both locally and overseas. All in all, its students enjoy an exceptionally high quality education during their years in the College.
 WISE stands for Wonder, Integrity, Self-Discipline & Excellence
