PreK-Grade 12 International Day and Boarding School in Kobe, Japan | Since 1913


Over 3,000 students have graduated from Canadian Academy since the school was founded in 1913. Many of our alumni - whether they were here for a short time or much longer - consider their CA education and experiences some of "the best years" of their lives.

Being a member of Canadian Academy is more than joining a school; it's becoming part of history. The Alumni Association has a network of over 70 Class Representatives from the Classes of pre-war 1940s to the present. This network of volunteer Class Representatives plays a very important role, providing a link between their class and Canadian Academy. These volunteers help keep their classmates connected with CA, organize class reunions, and provide resources that support our students. 

We also stay in touch by publishing the digital Canadian Academy Annual Report and sharing it with alumni all over the world. But we can't do that if we do not know where you are!

We hope that you take a moment to complete the form that is linked at the right, letting us know where you are and how you are doing.

And as always, please let us know when you are in town-- we'd be happy to show you our beautiful campus as well as a peek into what our students are doing. We think you'll agree- although CA has changed over the years, the unique experiences we offer our students has not. 

Canadian Academy has served and been an integral part of our local and international communities in many ways over the years. 

On January 17, 1995, the Great Hanshin Earthquake struck leaving 6,434 dead, 43,792 injured, and over 249,180 houses and buildings destroyed. The following is a collection of diary entries written by our grade six students at that time.

We would like to thank Sachiko Riley, Anil Mamtani, and Natasha Mackinson for sharing this project so we can all learn and remember.
