NJC is a one-year school annually welcoming 60 to 80 students in their final pre-university year to study the Enriched Ontario Grade 12 curriculum as well as Advanced Placement.
In search of students who might be interested in such an adventure, founder Leonard Wilde travelled to Canada, and taught at Shawnigan Lake School, on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, to become acquainted with the Canadian school system and Canadian students. With this experience in hand, he was able to recruit the college’s first 42 students from Canada in 1956.
Classes at Neuchatel Junior College are taught in English, but each student is required to take at least one French course. In addition to this, students live with a local family in what is called a pension. This allows the students to interact in French and truly understand Swiss and European culture.
