KIU Academy - New School Year

Dear Parents,

We hope that you have been able to enjoy the spring break.

The teachers and staff at KIU Academy are looking forward to starting the 2021-2022 school year on April 12 (Monday).

Because of the recent increase in covid-19 cases in the Kinki region, KIUA will be starting the spring term with the delayed scheduled (the same schedule that we used in the winter term; with school gates opening at 8:30 and homeroom starting at 9:05 [9:00 for high school] ).

Please make sure to take your child's temperature every day before sending them to school (use the Health Checkup Sheet to record the temperature). Students who have a fever or are showing flu-like symptoms should stay home. Students who come to school must present the Health Checkup Sheet to the homeroom teacher.

For more details, please read the documents below:

Last year the KIU Board of Directors decided to make changes to our foundational statements. The updated version is as follows:

Equipping students as cross-cultural leaders who impact the world for Jesus.

Students communicate in English and Japanese; collaborate with people from different cultures; are prepared for college, career, and citizenship; and have increased openness to and understanding of Jesus.

We believe bilingual, internationally-minded, American-based, Christ-centered education within a caring community equips students.

The updated version of the school handbook includes this and other changes. Please read the handbook carefully and return the "Notice of Agreement" (page 61) signed to the school office.

Thank you for your attention and support.
