We recognise that selecting the right school for your child is a big decision, one that requires research and careful consideration. After all, you are about to make the most important investment in your child’s future.

The best way to get a true flavour for KTJ is by attending an open event or booking a visit. This will give you the opportunity to experience our impressive 80-acre campus and the warm and energetic atmosphere within our school first-hand. Secondary campus tours are usually provided by our school prefects, who are happy to offer you their own unique and honest perspective of life at KTJ. Meetings with senior leadership staff and subject teachers can also be arranged to ensure that you get the most out of your visit. 

Once you’ve decided KTJ is the right fit for your child, the next stage is to fill out the online application form. You will be requested to pay a RM500 registration fee. Once your online application form has been submitted, a dedicated member of our admissions team will guide you through the entry requirements stage. Please read our Admissions Policy before making an application.
