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


Providing service is a core part of who we are. Canadian Academy inspires students to inquire, reflect, and choose to compassionately impact the world throughout their lives. 

What is Service?

Service is an activity that goes beyond ordinary school or family responsibilities, is performed without payment, and helps others. Service Learning is when service is an integral part of the learning and curriculum. While doing for others starts in elementary, our service program becomes more formalized in secondary school. Service at Canadian Academy is student-initiated, meaningful, and committed to providing continued support. 


What are the aims of Community Service at Canadian Academy?

  • Encourage students to continually engage in activities that help others and the environment

  • Foster responsibility as a member of the global community

  • Embrace human diversity through Community Service and enhance understanding of perspectives of different cultures
  • Develop open and respectful communication skills necessary for working collaboratively with others in a diverse community
  • Reflect on what he/she learned to take for future action

The Director of Service and the Director of Admissions help students with logistics and verify that the service follows CA's service philosophy. Faculty and parent support for service activities is crucial. Many of these opportunities cannot take place without adult support.


Service Activities include:

  • Animal Rescue Kansai (ARK)
