Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Infant Jesus Convent, commonly referred to as Infant Jesus Convent (IJC) is a secondary school for girls in the city of Melaka, Malaysia. It is also sometimes referred to as the Main Convent or the French Convent (as opposed to the Portuguese Convent, Cannossa).
SMK Infant Jesus Convent Melaka is a semi-government funded daily school. This means that syllabus and school activities are regulated by the Ministry of Education, but the school receives little help for repairing and maintaining its condition, because the land is still under church authority.
As of 2008, IJC is the last remaining IJ Convent in Malaysia whose land is still under church authority.


IJC is located in the heart of Melaka town, and is a stone's throw away from the historic A Famosa fort and a number of shopping malls. It is situated exactly in front of SK Convent Infant Jesus 1 and 2, its primary sister schools. IJC is located on Jalan Parameswara, which was named after the Palembang prince credited for the opening of Melaka around 1402.
