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


School is about nurturing talents and passions as well as discovering new ones, learning in meaningful ways, and gaining a greater understanding of oneself and one's place in the world. It's also about friendships, creating memories, and having new adventures.

Our Spaces and Places

With our recent renovations, school (and learning) has become so much more...well, fun. Our science labs, maker spaces, library, cafeteria and atrium offer ample areas to explore ideas, perform experiments, and make your imagination come to life. 

Break a Leg!

With our P&G Black Box Theater, main auditorium, or flexible performance space in our atrium, we are ready to shine the spotlight on you. Whether it is a dramatic performance that you've written or a traditional pantomime with audience participation, or just jamming with friends in our Coffee House, our multiple stages are waiting for you.

Give Yourself

Service is important to us-- it's even embedded in our Mission Statement. And our students take it to heart-- with nearly twenty service oriented clubs to choose from, you'll find that giving of yourself is not only the right thing to do, it's also the fun thing.

Ancient Japan

Located within an hour of Kyoto, you'll be ready to spot a geisha, meditate in a thousand-year old temple, and follow in the footsteps of samurai past. With 23 World Heritage Properties, Japan's past is never far away.

Modern Japan

From manga and anime to cosplay and karaoke, Japan is definitely on the cutting edge of culture. From fun and funky to brash and bold, Japan's unique style can be found in Kobe and neighboring Osaka!

Week Without Walls

Learning doesn't stop at the walls of our school. Grab an oar, set your sails, strap on your hiking boots-- our students head to the hills, lakes, and beaches of Japan for a week of fun-filled learning. You'll be amazed at how challenging it can be-- and how successful you'll be in meeting that challenge. And don't worry, you'll have plenty of friends to help you along the way.

Hit the Slopes

We're not trying to pick a fight with Utah and Colorado, but...Japan has some of the best powder snow in the world. Our middle school powderhounds hit the slopes, and whether new to the sport or born with skis on their feet, the variety of slopes ensure there is something for everyone.

Our After School Clubs and Activities

We have great diversity at CA-- nationalities, languages, and interests. With three different sessions, our after school athletics and activities on offer are just as diverse, from coding and robotics to soccer and softball. You'll have the chance to try something new, or to further hone your skills.

Our Diverse Community

Walking down the hallways is pretty amazing-- mostly because of the diversity of our student body.  Although we all learn in English, we celebrate the range of languages heard on our campus. Differing perspectives and values further offer an opportunity to develop a sense of international mindedness. With nearly 40 different nationalities represented, we truly offer an international experience.

Academic Excellence

We are a school, after all, and learning with and from you is why we are here. Our dedicated and professional staff have experience teaching all over the world, ready to challenge, support, and celebrate you. As one of the first International Baccalaureate Continuum Schools in Asia offering all three programs, you'll be well prepared to enter the college or university that is right for you.
