History[edit]

In 1993, the Sarawak state government has agreed to provide land for the construction of what it is to be the first MRSM in East Malaysia.

MARA Junior Science College(MJSC)Kuching or the official name Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (MRSM) Kuching began in the early 90s when the State government finally agreed to provide land for the construction of the first MRSM in East Malaysia. In September 1993,the basic infrastructure of a school was completed and was handed over to MARA in December 1993 and was ready to take in students the following year. MARA Junior Science College Kuching is so,named because it is located in Petrajaya in Kuching area.The college is now facing CIDB Campus of Sarawak and adjacent to IKM(Institute Kemahiran MARA),Kuching.What is more stunning is the amazing backdrop scenery of MRSM Kuching which is the legendary mountain,Mount Santubong.

The first group instructors or,teachers,to be precise,came at the end of 1993, and their arrival were quite slow as the distance was far and there were a few affairs that needed to be resolved first. MRSM Kuching started operating in 1993/1994 and there was only 16 instructors and a principal.

While the recruitment and placement of students started in the second semester of the 1993/94. The total intake of the First batch of students were 106 for Lower Secondary One. This amount did not meet the quota that should have been 150 students because of late offers and problems from the Secondary Education Division, Headquarters Division and Ministry of Education. Although starting late and the number of students did not meet the quota, the first session went smoothly and well.
