Applying for the 2024-2025 School Year

  • We accept applications at any time one year prior to the school year.

  • Starting in November, we begin processing and interviewing our applicants. 

  • Admission results will be shared in March.
  • If the application is received after Jan. 31, it will be reviewed after Feb. 28, pending grade level availability.

Families from overseas

With over 36 countries represented within our school, we welcome both international and local families to join and enrich our community.  For families joining us from overseas it is an exciting time in the life of your family. Living abroad is an experience that will shape and influence your family and children for the rest of their lives, and finding the right school for your child is of utmost importance.

We understand that an expats life is often unpredictable, and that employment changes and international transfers pay little regards for the rhythm of a school year.  To help accommodate this, we welcome applicants from overseas at any time throughout the school year. 

Families from Japanese schools or outside the Kansai area

We welcome students from Japanese schools and other international schools outside the Kansai area. We accept applications at any time throughout the year.

We understand that transitioning to a new school can be overwhelming - wherever you are coming from. The Admissions Office is here to help with that process, and answer any questions you might have about the school or life in Japan. 

Places at Canadian Academy are highly sought after, which can sometimes result in a waiting pool at some grade levels. 

We encourage families to apply as soon as possible as  student numbers can be fluid and when a seat becomes available, we review all the applicants in the waiting pool and make a selection.

To be entered into the waiting pool, applicants need to have completed the entire application process. 

For information on specific grades, please feel to contact us for additional details prior to applying. We are here to help!
