St. Joseph’s College, Trincomalee

St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is a national school in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka.

History

The school was founded on 27 July 1867 by Rev. Fr. Louis Mary Keating. On 1 April 1931 the Roman Catholic Diocese of Trincomalee-Batticaloahanded the school over to the Society of Jesus of the Province of Louisiana. Most private schools in Ceylon were taken over by the government in 1960 but SJC chose to remain as a private and non-fee levying school. The school struggled financially thereafter and ten years later the school was handed over to the government.
