Warmest greetings and welcome as you explore the website of our newest Lasallian school in Asia:
St Joseph’s Institution International, Malaysia  (SJIIM).

The Lasallian Family of Schools has been an integral part of Malaysian education since 1852. Renowned schools such as St Xavier’s Institution in Penang, St John’s Institution in Kuala Lumpur, St Francis' Institution in Malacca and many more have made an invaluable contribution to nation building. They continue to exemplify the faith-filled, inclusive and caring qualities which are the hallmarks of our Lasallian mission for over 300 years. We can assure you that SJIIM will build on this noble tradition with courage and vision and express the ‘international dimension’ in a uniquely Lasallian way.

At the heart of our Lasallian mission is each  unique child, your child, entrusted to our care. Accompanying each child on its journey to self-fulfillment is a God-given privilege which we treasure.  Our Founder, St. John Baptist De La Salle, set the standard when he exhorted the Brothers to: “Take even more care of the education of the young people entrusted to you than if they were the children of a king.” 

The Brothers and teachers at SJIIM will be infused with this caring Lasallian spirit as they seek to provide your child with a truly holistic education which is academically rigorous and at the same time sensitive to the needs of each child.

We thank you for your interest in our new international school and welcome you to join our Lasallian family in this exciting journey marked by a spirit of faith, service and community.
