The NJC Advantage

Student-centred education, enhanced by experience –
that is the NJC approach. Progressive and thought provoking, NJC's experiential education has at its core a rigorous academic program. Students gain an uncommon edge through exposure to world history, unfolding current events, different languages and cultural traditions.

Prepared for university and for life, NJC graduates are defined by:


NJC’s enriched academic, social and global environment promotes personal and intellectual maturity, awareness, curiosity and a lifelong commitment to the pursuit of knowledge.


NJC students take the personal and social risk of leaving all that they know behind to explore all that is new, emerging as positive, secure, adaptable, decisive and self-aware young adults who embrace change and the future with confidence.


NJC students live and travel in new countries, cultures and languages, away from home for an extended period of time. In successfully making choices, they develop profound personal responsibility, drive, accountability and independence.


NJC's transformative experience empowers students to apply their knowledge, to have confidence in their unique abilities, and to be exceedingly independent so that they can take action to lead their own lives and others' in making a positive difference in the world.
