Principal's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Kansai Christian School!

Kansai Christian School serves in  a unique role among learning institutions in Japan. While having a clear international flare, we also strive to remain connected to the local community as one of only a few Christian organizations in the area. Students travel to KCS from major metropolitan areas throughout the region including Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara, but many students also attend from the smaller towns and neighborhoods near the school. This creates a school community that has both an international and local flavor; connecting the cultures of the world with that which is distinctly Japanese. A primary goal of our school is to remain an active member of the local community while also helping students recognize their international responsibilities and opportunities.  

The school has no exclusive denominational affiliations and seeks to rely on biblical foundations for the operation and educational goals of the school. We feel strongly it is our responsibility to work with parents and families to provide a quality education that instills Christian values in the next generation. While the school relies heavily on US and international curriculum standards, the biblical view of life, which understands God's truth to be the standard of all truth, permeates every area of academic and social life at KCS. 

KCS has a distinctly Christian family atmosphere, quality teachers, low student-to-teacher ratios and many of the advantages associated with smaller schools. Our students are able to study under Christian instruction and example in the context of high academic standards. Within this framework, students are able to obtain a strong foundation from which they can fulfill their God-given callings and service to society.

KCS has been accepted as an official Candidate for Accreditation. Approved by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), anticipating completion of the accreditation review by the spring of 2021. WASC accredited schools are officially recognized by the Japanese Ministry of Education for acceptance into Japanese Universities. KCS is also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

Please explore the web site and feel free to contact the school if you would like more information. Thank you again for visiting!
