True freedom nurtures the will and strength to grow independently.
Josai has three founding principals; extension of natural aptitude, respect for individuality, and respect for individual ingenuity. This is all enveloped within the philosophy of “ho’on kansha”, or “returning kindness with gratitude”. There is an environment in which students’ talents, academic abilities, and other core parts of education are developed. We consider the relationship of teachers and students as well as that between students when considering class organization. While respecting individuality, we foster the abilities for our students to be contributing members of society during their time at Josai.
Working to realize student goals
Our students often have very high hopes of going on to university. Going to college, however, is not the ultimate goal. Going to college is a prerequisite for achieving the student’s future goals. I would like to do my best to support them in their endeavors. We give them the opportunity to think about their future through “learning how to live from their parents” and get a job that makes the most of their personality, and contribute to society 10 or 20 years after graduating from high school. I would like to send out a large number of graduates who are doing this.
Because Josai is a private school, we have been able to make some fine adjustments to the educational content in these changing times. The essence of Josai education, however, is education that emphasizes our students, an education that nurtures individuals who can appreciate people and things, an education that brings people in contact with real things through hands-on learning, and an education that values freestyle learning, both to students in and from out of Japan. These core policies will continue without change as we face future challenges.
While keenly aware of the joys and responsibilities of being involved in junior and senior high school education, our faculty strive to make this a school where dreams can become reality.
