Yishun Junior College (YJC) is one of the 18 junior colleges in Singapore, offering two-year pre-university programmes for students who graduate from secondary schools after the General Certificate of Education 'Ordinary' Level Examination. The two-year programme prepares students for education in local or foreign universities.
Yishun Junior College was listed as one of the top-ten value added junior colleges in 2005 and 2006, and attained the gold academic value-added award for three consecutive years between 2007 and 2009.
The construction of Yishun Junior College was completed in December 1986 and the college was officially declared open by Mr. Tang Guan Seng, Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Education on 28 May 1988. The college began with 634 students led by 34 teachers.
On 20 April 2017, it was announced that YJC would merge with Innova Junior College, with the merged school located at the current site of YJC. This was in view of the declining cohort sizes since 2014, which was attributed to the fall in Singapore's birth rate.
