5. Muffles Junior College
Muffles Junior College is in Orange Walk District, Belize.In 1954 Jesuit Fr. Ring helped launch a high school in Orange Walk, named after Fr. Joseph Meuffels, S.J. (The spelling of the college name was adjusted to the way it is pronounced.) Sisters of Mercy took charge of the school in 1967. In 1992 the need for tertiary level classes in Orange Walk District led to the first junior college classes at Muffles, with an enrollment of thirty-eight students pursuing the Associate Degree in Business Science. The first graduating class on June 11, 1994, numbered 22. With the support of the local community and government, Muffles Junior College relocated to its own campus in 2002. By 2012 nine associate degree programs enrolled approximately 400 students.
