We aim to:
1. provide a place of bilingual and bicultural secondary education for the children of Japanese parents assigned abroad
2. educate talented young students who, with a full international experience, will be capable of understanding diversity and who will play active and significant roles in a global society
3. serve culturally the neighboring communities in which the School is located
4. promote academic, cultural, and educational activities overseas.
The curriculum at Keio Academy of New York is based on both the American and Japanese systems. Depending on subject needs, classes are taught in mainly in English, but Japanese is compulsory for all. Teachers encourage students to participate in class and cultivate independent thinking with a broader, flexible perspective while respecting diversity. In this way, students learn to deepen their insights and how to express themselves clearly and concisely.
