Ignite Programme

Questions, not answers, are the source of true knowledge. The CJC Ignite Programme is for the boldly curious, the analytical thinker, the budding scholar. If you are ready to raise the bar and create change in your community, you belong in our Ignite programme.

Our integrated curriculum prepares you to truly be a thinker with a mission, leader with a heart. As a critical thinker and future-oriented leader, you will be given the opportunities to ask difficult questions, uncover core theories and analyse complex problems.

The CJC Ignite student is ready to light the future.

The CJC Ignite programme is built upon the following principles:

  • Seminar-style pedagogy, encouraging exploration, reflection and expression of ideas
  • Smaller teacher-student ratio, allowing for greater tutor-student interaction and engagement
  • An authentic service learning project for a target community and / or advocacy programme
  • A residential programme at NUS UTown based on our integrated learning approach
  • Integration of subject disciplines, through a concept-based approach
  • Greater opportunities to develop life skills, communication and leadership skills

The CJC Ignite programe is a talent development programme in alignment to the College Mission “Building a generation: In Truth & Love” where every CJCian is a Thinker with a mission and a Leader with a heart.



To enter the CJC Ignite programme, students must first enrol in the college through the MOE Joint Admissions Exercise or Direct School Schools Admission.
