Wesley Junior College (WJC) is a Christian college in Belize. It offers innovative educational programs at the junior college level in business, science. The college dates back to June 1882 when the Methodist Church inaugurated the first secondary school in Belize, the British Honduras-Wesley High School with just 5 boys and Reverend T.N. Robert as Principal. It moved to its present location in 1889 and in the 1930s, the first sixth form program in the country was added. However, after many years of successful running, the college ran into financial difficulties and was forced to close in the 1970s. In 1987, attempts were made to restart the college with a Business Studies Tertiary level program but lack of funding meant that the reopening of the college was delayed many years. In the year 1995 new efforts were started to reopen the sixth form; however, it was not until 2003 that Wesley Junior College had reopened. Upon reopening the Wesley Junior College had fifty students enrolled in two programs which are the associate degree in General Studies and the one Year Adult Continuing Education Program. On May 20, 2006 Wesley Junior College had its first graduation after reopening.
