Temasek Junior College (TJC) is a junior college in Singapore and was established in 1977. It is located in Bedok. The college admits students for the six-year Integrated Programme and the two-year pre-university course, both culminating in the GCE Advanced Level national examination. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall wife of Prince of United Kingdom, visited Temasek Junior College in 2017.

Temasek Junior College was established in 1976 as the second government junior college in Singapore, with the intake of its pioneer batch of students the following year. The College was the second to bear the reference to the nation, after National Junior College. The name "Temasek", a reference Singapore which meant "a maritime island", was adopted to honour the resilience, fortitude and courage of the nation's forefathers.

In 1982, Temasek Junior College became one of the pre-university centres to offer its variation of the Humanities Scholarship Programme (HSP), co-ordinated by the Ministry of Education.
