Walking through the hallways at Canadian Academy is an incredible experience; our students come from countries all over the world, speak a variety of languages, and have varied interests and abilities. From this diversity comes understanding and acceptance. It is what creates a warm, friendly feeling at Canadian Academy.
We understand that transitioning to a new school can be overwhelming. The Admissions Office is here to help with that process, and answer any questions you might have about the school or life in Japan. We would be happy to arrange a tour of Canadian Academy as well. We always enjoy showing off our school!
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Director of Admissions
We are very proud of our students, programs, faculty and facilities. It would be our pleasure to arrange a tour.
With over 36 countries represented within our school, we welcome families from overseas as well as from within Japan to join our community.
We welcome applications for all grade levels. As we are a highly sought after school, we currently have a waiting pool at several grade levels. When a seat becomes available, we review all the applicants in the waiting pool and make a selection.
Families coming to 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 welcome applicants from overseas at any time throughout the school year. So we can make sure your child has a smooth transition to CA, please be sure to submit your application three weeks before your anticipated starting date.
Families coming to us from Japanese schools or outside the Kansai area
Our school welcomes students coming from Japanese schools and other international schools outside the Kansai area. We accept applications at any time throughout the year.
Families coming to us from international schools in the Kansai area
We welcome transfers from other international schools in the Kansai area with the expressed consent of the other school. If you have questions regarding this possibility, please contact us.
Families with younger children
If your child is too young to attend our PreK3 program, Peter Pan International Pre-school may be a good option.
