Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Kansai Christian School was established in 1970 as an English-language school serving the evangelical Christian missionary community in the Kansai region. Today, over 50 years after its founding, KCS continues to provide a Biblically-based 1st-12th grade education to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.

KCS campus, situated between flower fields and rice paddies in Nara Prefecture’s Heguri Town, provides a peaceful setting for a Christ-centered and truly international community of learners.

Teaching approach of the school

KCS' curriculum, based on American curriculum standards, is designed to prepare students for college and to prepare them for Christian service.

The biblical view of life, which understands God's truth to be the standard of all truth, is the foundation upon which the curriculum is based. The curriculum thus serves to reaffirm the biblical view of the home. KCS recognizes that parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children, therefore KCS functions in cooperation with parents.
