Grade Placement

ES Reading in Library

Moving between school systems can be confusing. To help place your child, please consult our table below. Class placement is based on your child's educational background and age on October 1st.

Although our school year follows a North American school calendar (mid August through mid June), we are happy to accept students at any time during the school year. Please note that Japanese schools start from April, with the child being six when entering Grade 1.

Student placement decisions for those coming from a different school calendar is based on several factors, among which include age, educational history, and the percentage of school year already completed and still remaining at CA.
