Our Vision

Global Step Academy International School is a school that focuses on nurturing students to become well-rounded individuals through the cultivation of their intellectual, creative, personal, social, and physical abilities. The school is committed to educating both local and foreign students to be international and independent thinkers. Also, the school focuses heavily on academic quality, long-term community development, an understanding of diversity, as well as language learning and communication, ethics, self-awareness and mindfulness.

We believe that classroom and co-curricular activities are essential in the child’s development and therefore we put a relatively high focus on sports, music and extracurricular activities where children can fully use their five-senses in the learning process, while learning effectively how to function both as an individual and as part of a group through active learning.

The ultimate goal is that every student gains the fundamental skill sets and knowledge to become Global Citizens and be well-prepared to enter elementary school and continue their education as a Global Citizen, whether it’s an international school or a local school in Japan or overseas.

Our Director

"Global Step Academy International School embraces diversity, which contributes to students' cultural awareness and mutual understanding of different cultures.

We believe that the age between 2 to 6 is a critical period for cognitive development. It is essential to spend quality time in such an international community to cultivate international mindedness.

We aim at achieving not only acquisition of fundamental knowledge, but cultivation of cooperativeness, grit, creativity, and leadership on top of international mindedness. Our school provides online support and educational counseling service to establish students' educational path."
