Dear Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Canadian Academy in Kobe, Japan. We are very proud to showcase our diverse, inclusive, and innovative international school to you through our website. You are welcome to contact our admissions office if you are interested to learn even more about Canadian Academy or better yet, come for a visit!

Our rich history as an international school in Japan has allowed us to develop connections with the local and international communities giving our students exceptional learning opportunities from PreK to Grade 12. Whether students enjoy the creative process in our design labs, take part in our mentor program with multinational companies, adventure in our outdoor education program, or experiment in our state of the art science labs, Canadian Academy supports all learners inside and outside of the classroom.

Inspiring teachers and an abundance of academic opportunities build a strong foundation for our students to be successful not just during their time at CA but once they graduate. With the guidance of our world class college counseling program, CA students matriculate to top universities around the world. Our alumni keep Canadian Academy close to their heart, often returning to Kobe sharing their experiences with current students, visiting teachers, and giving back to the community. 

We look forward to the prospect of your family joining the Canadian Academy community and for your children to experience an exceptional, world class education.
