St. Joseph’s International School is a Catholic School managed by the Board of Directors, St. Joseph’s Private School Management Berhad (Company No. 981967-X). It was granted a license (Ref.: KP.BPS.SPIPS700-2/9/190(7) dated 28 November 2014 by the Ministry of Education, Kuala Lumpur to start in January 2017.

The school will be located at the former SK St. Teresa, Padungan, Kuching. In 2017, St. Joseph’s International School will open its doors to Year 7 (equivalent to Form 1). Classes are expected to be small as the license does not allow us to exceed 25 students per class. The fees will therefore be higher than St. Joseph’s Private School.

The school will be managed by the Marist Brothers (official name is Fratres Maristae a Scholis (FMS) – The Marist Brothers of the Schools, founded by a French priest, St. Marcellin Champagnat in 1817), and they will be aptly assisted by a team of trained, experienced and dedicated teachers.

St. Joseph’s International School will offer the Cambridge syllabus leading to the Cambridge ‘O’ and ‘A’ levels examinations. The books to be used will be sourced from the United Kingdom. All subjects will be taught using English as the medium of instruction. Malaysian citizens are required to study Bahasa Melayu, Pendidikan Islam or Pendidikan Moral, and Sejarah Malaysia.

St. Joseph’s is a single session and co-ed school with lessons from 7.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m., followed by extra-curricular activities. Development of soft skills such as the creative arts – music, drama and dance, and the nurturing of interpersonal skills and leadership qualities are all provided in a holistic education.

St. Joseph’s International School welcomes both foreign and local students.
