We appreciate your interest in opportunities to serve at Kansai Christian School. As a small school maintaining its goal of serving missionary families, KCS remains a small, no-frills school with a strong Christ-centered focus. The staff, families, and students form a supportive and caring community that strives to demonstrate exemplary Christian service as well as academic excellence. Teaching assignments at KCS are frequently across multiple grade levels and content areas; however, our student / teacher ratio is low and provides great flexibility and opportunities for building strong relationships.

Direct compensation for your work at KCS will provide for much of your livelihood; however, most teachers receive supplemental support through affiliated mission organizations or from churches and friends at home. This helps meet the cost of additional living expenses in Japan, as well as keeping staff connected with the greater body of believers and their home church communities. Teaching assignments are for a minimum of two years, but several staff have been involved with the school for decades.

Living and working in Japan can be an immensely rewarding experience. Most foreigners with a degree of cultural sensitivity will find the Japanese culture welcoming and endearing. While Japan embraces many Western influences, it still has an extremely low percentage of Christians (less than 1%). Opportunities for Christian ministry are plentiful but not without challenges as overcoming language and other cultural barriers can be frustrating at times.
