Cultivating Respectable Japanese Citizens
We encourage our students to be respectable Japanese citizens who can be young global leaders by cultivating themselves and acquiring necessary skills and manners.
Our school has the following two distinct educational goals:
- To foster students with pride in their heritage, based on a deep understanding of their tradition and culture, and its underlying philosophies and moral code.
- To foster students with high level English and Japanese and the ability to succeed in the global arena, establishing meaningful international relationships using their deep understanding of other cultures.
Established in 1960, our school currently has about 1500 students. We boast a high university passing rate and provide education aimed at developing students into global leaders who will be able to play major roles on the international stage.

Okayama Gakugeikan Language School, Japan
Gakugeikan Language School was founded in 2012 as a Japanese language school. Since it is located in the same site of the high school, students of the both schools share the facilities such as cafeteria and the library. They also participate in some school events held jointly. What makes us unique among other general language schools is this location enables students to have a lot of opportunities to use Japanese language they have just learned in the classroom, beyond it. We teach not only Japanese language but also other subjects and support them to enter colleges or universities in Japan.
