Welcome to MeySen Academy
Over its 50 year history, MeySen Academy has become one of Japan's premiere educational institutions specializing in early childhood development and English as a Foreign Language (EFL).
The standards of our management are rooted in the ethics and guiding principles of Christianity, though the school has no special affiliation with any denomination or religious organization. The expectations we have of MeySen students, teachers, and staff are based on the character principles of Christianity and our curriculum openly incorporates Biblical principles and values. About one third of the teaching staff plus all of the administrators are Christians. However, there is open and dynamic interaction among teachers, students, and parents of all faiths, enhancing the international teaching experience for our teachers.
"Go into the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation."
(Mark 16:15 ESV)
MeySen was founded by American evangelical Christians who came to Japan in the 1960’s in obedience to this command, and by the Japanese Christians who joined them. Over the past 50 years, MeySen Academy has grown from a humble “tent-making” enterprise into one of Japan’s premiere educational institutions specializing in early childhood development and English as a Foreign Language (EFL).
The foundation of MeySen's educational model has always been a Christ-centered and wholistic approach to English education, which incorporates the arts, nature, humanities, imagination and physical education.
