A new junior college that will open in 2017 for students from three Integrated Programme (IP) schools will likely be built on the site of the Asian Golf Academy near Bishan.

A statement on the Ministry of Education (MOE) website says the new campus will be at the junction of Sin Ming Avenue and Marymount Road, where the driving range is located.

The area is also zoned for an educational institution, according to the Urban Redevelopment Authority's Draft Master Plan 2013.

Singapore's 20th school to offer a JC programme will take in IP students from Catholic High School, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls' School and the Singapore Chinese Girls' School. It will also admit more than 100 students from other secondary schools who have completed their O levels.
