Aichi International School (AIS) was founded in the spring of 2000 with the mission of providing children with a more global-oriented style of education. As the 21st century begins, it is easy to see that the strong push towards globalization is changing the set of skills now required to be successful.  AIS has a kindergarten and an elementary school and provides education to children ages 2 to elementary grade 6.  The kindergarten is an English emersion program with classes conducted only in English.  The elementary is a bilingual program with the majority of the classes conducted in English with Japanese subjects conducted in Japanese.  The 2012/13 school year begins this April and we welcome interested families to come for a visit and get a tour of the facilities, meet the teachers and learn more about what we have to offer at AIS.

The International Christian Academy of Nagoya is an international school located on the outskirts of Nagoya, Japan. ICAN offers a quality education for students from Pre-Kindergarten through 11th grade. All instruction is in English. We are a partner school of the Network of International Christian Schools (www.nics.org) with headquarters near Memphis, Tennessee. ICAN is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Our mission is to equip students as generous servers, effective communicators, responsible citizens, determined learners and discerning thinkers.

Nagoya International School is a private, coeducational day school founded in 1964 offering an internationally recognized curricular program from preschool through high school. The mission for our community aims high: to inspire and empower our students to think creatively and critically, to pursue life-long learning, and to choose to consistently contribute to their communities. NIS is a full member of the Council of International Schools (CIS), accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and our curriculum is framed by the programs of the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The language of instruction is English, and our program is intended for the international and internationally-minded families of Nagoya. Currently there are 325 students representing 32 nationalities. NIS graduates can be found pursuing their dreams at universities and colleges around the world, and in professions that represent all walks of life.

Nanzan Gakuen the purpose of all Nanzan education, whether at the University (one of only three coeducational Catholic universities in Japan), at the junior college, our high schools, or our primary school,is to provide quality education with a difference,a broad, Christian, international, and academic education with the aim of increasing each person’s awareness of human dignity: not only the dignity of oneself as an individual, but the dignity of all people. The promotion of human dignity, by necessity, produces a sense of social responsibility and a commitment to the needs of others. This is, after all, the basis of Christ’s law of charity, the source of Nanzan’s motto: “Hominis Dignitati. for the dignity of all human beings.”
