History

Outram Institute (1987 - 2004)

Outram Institute (OI) was the first centralised institute open in 1987, and the oldest before her annexation into MI. In 1989, Outrum Institute was the first pre-university centre in Singapore to offer the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) examination, on top of the GCE Advanced Level examination. The first batch of its students achieved a commendable 80 percent pass rate in the examination.

Jurong Institute (1989 - 2004)

Jurong Institute (JI) was the third centralised institute when it was established in 1989 and was initially located at Jurong West Street 91. The Institute moved to 2 Toh Tuck Terrace on 18 November 1994.

Jurong Institute was known for its stringent examination standards, which hit the news in 1990. The uproar involved the institute's policy that all advancing students of the promotional examination are required to re-take all subjects in the supplementary exam, including the ones cleared by the students in the promotional examination.

Merger as Millennia Institute

On 26 July 2003, decision was made public by the Ministry of Education on the merger of Outram Institute and Jurong Institute to conglomerate the sparsely organised three-year pre-university institutions into a single entity. This move was to allow consolidation of expertise and teaching resources of the two institutes, and provide students with more customised programmes and facilities, thereby enhancing the delivery of the three-year pre-university education programme. As a result, Millennia Institute was established on 3 January 2004.
