Apply to NJC

Every September, teenagers from across Canada and beyond choose to step outside of their comfort zones at NJC. While studying Grade 12 curriculum and AP from their new home in Switzerland, they explore a dozen countries, mature rapidly, and make the best friends of their lives. Academic preparedness and international exposure lead to acceptances from the finest universities. New independence enables them to understand who they are and realize how their passions and talents will one day contribute on a global scale.

"I submitted my application, thinking that even though it was totally outside my comfort zone, it couldn’t hurt to put myself out there. In that moment, I made the single best decision I have made in my entire life. As the pieces began to fall into place for me to attend NJC, I began to feel a unique sense of excitement that I hadn’t felt since I was a child waking up on Christmas morning.”
