Jurong Junior College (JJC) is a junior college in Singapore and was established on April 1981 offering two-year pre-university courses leading to the GCE Advanced Level examinations. Jurong Junior College was first situated at West Coast Road, next to Pandan Reservoir. The college became functional in April 1981 and opened its doors to the first batch of students in 1982. In January 1985, Jurong Junior College was relocated to its current campus at Corporation Road.

JJC was announced as the 4th Language Elective Programme (Chinese) Centre by the MOE on 9 April 2005. The Chinese Language Elective Programme (CLEP) aims to encourage students who have the interest and ability to take up H2 Chinese Language and Literature. Hence from 2006, the college began offering the CLEP together with 3 other JCs, and later Dunman High School when it was announced as the fifth centre to offer the same programme.

Jurong Junior College will merge with Pioneer Junior College in 2019 as announced on April 20, 2017. The merged school will be named as Jurong Pioneer Junior College, which is a combination of the two schools' names, having the "older" school's name in front. The current principal, Dr Hang Kim Hoo will be the new principal.
