Our Program

Our classes (except for Bible) 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 kindergarten program includes Bible, core academics, specialist instruction (music, physical education, art for K5, and library skills for K5), and activities:

  • Year-round activity: chapel
  • Fall activities: sports day, Yomitan No Sato visit, walkathon
  • Winter activities: Christmas program, kite day, character parade, zoo trip
  • Spring activities: church visit, picnic

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.
