Our Program

Our classes (except foreign language) are taught in English, and we use an American-style program that addresses the whole person, is Biblically based, recognizes all truth is God’s truth, emphasizes sharing the Gospel and discipleship, and encourages Biblical thinking and living.

Our elementary program includes Bible, core academics, specialist instruction (art, computer applications, Japanese language, music, physical education, library skills), and activities:

  • Year-round activity: chapel
  • Fall activities: walkathon, zoo trip (grade 1), cave visit (grade 3), Neo Park (grade 4), camp (grades 4-5)
  • Winter activities: Christmas program, kite day, character parade, aquarium visit (grade 2)
  • Spring activities: field day, kid city (grades 1-2), culture fair (grades 3-5), book fair (grades 3-5), authors’ tea (grades 4-5)

Communication

We post grades online, send home report cards, e-mail a newsletter once each month, and have conferences twice a year. We can be contacted by phone or e-mail.
