Catholic Junior College (CJC) is a junior college in Singapore and was established in 1975. It is located in Novena, offering two-year pre-university courses leading to the GCE Advanced Level examinations.

Catholic Junior College was founded in 1975 by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Singapore, Michel Olçomendy in an effort to centralise the pre-university education provided by the different Catholic schools, a move in the nation's adoption of the junior college system. At current standings, Catholic Junior College is regarded as the first government-aided junior college in the island city-state.
