UPDATE: June 19, 2020

Dear Parents,

We hope you are doing well.

It has been great to welcome the student body back to the KIUA campus this week. Thank you very much for your cooperation with the school's Health and Safety Policies and patience with all the inconveniences that this causes. We hope and pray that things may be able to return to normal in the near future.

In the meantime we must continue to be prudent and minimize risks. We are doing our best at school, but we are still concerned about our students riding crowded trains in the morning. Because of this, we have decided to keep the shortened school schedule (starting at 9:40 and ending at 3:20) until the end of the spring trimester.

We are sorry to inform you that we cannot take daily orders (individual orders) of school lunches when the shortened schedule is in effect. However, we are able to take bulk orders for the entire rest of the term (school lunch for every school day until the end of the term). Please contact the school office by 13:00 the day before you want your order to start (if you want to order from Monday, please contact the office on the previous Friday). We apologize for the inconvenience.

As for after school activities, we have decided to provide at least a few days of "Open Gym" for the secondary students. Participation in "Open Gym" will be restricted to students who have parental permission to join. Please click on the links below for more information:

Several other programs are being planned for the summer. Please click on the links below for more information:

2020 KIU Academy Summer Program (Grades 1-6):

  • On Monday, June 15, the link to the application form for the special 2020 KIU Academy Summer Program was sent to all of the KIU Academy gmail accounts for students who are now in grades 1-6. We request that parents please read it and respond by Monday, June 29.
  • As announced in March, we will be having a special three-week summer program (July 13-31 on weekdays from 9:45 to 3:15) this year to make up for the three weeks at the end of the 2019 school year when there were no elementary classes at school due to the coronavirus. All students who were enrolled at KIU Academy in grades 1-5 at the end of the 2019 school year are invited to participate in this program free of charge.

4・5年生の登下校について For Students in Grade 4 and 5




Dear parents,

Since all of the elementary students will be coming to school every day next week, we would like to ask all fourth and fifth graders who usually ride the bus to walk to and from the station to make room for the first, second, and third graders to ride the buses with social distancing. 

Students should walk with their classmates rather than walking alone. We are teaching all of the fourth and fifth graders the safest route to use to walk to and from school and an explanation with photos is available through this link.

UPDATE: June 10, 2020

Dear Parents and Students,

We hope that you and your family are doing well.

KIU Academy is moving forward in the process of resuming classes on campus. 

As you know, our plan for for resuming school is going to enter "week 3" starting next Monday, June 15th.

This will be the first time our entire student body will be present at school at the same time since the end of February.

We must ask you for your continued cooperation with the KIUA Health and Safety Policies so that we can minimize the risk of infection at school.

Thankfully the number of COVID-19 cases in the Kansai area is decreasing, but we must still be careful.

In addition to the measures school is taking (see KIUA Health and Safety Policies), we have decided to avoid activities outside the KIUA campus.

Because of this, elementary school excursions and the MS / HS Camp will be either canceled or postponed until further notice. This includes the senior camp.

This means that July 1 - 3 all students (including the MS / HS students) will have regular classes at school (due to camp postponement).

Thank you for your cooperation.

Regarding the "High School Tuition Support Fund " system (for parents of 10th to 12th graders)

The "High School Tuition Support Fund" system has been amended so that the amount has been increased starting from this year. Current beneficiaries (those who already applied) do not need to take any new action. But please contact the school accountant if your family composition or address has changed after application.

Please feel free to contact the school accountant if you would like to apply for the first time or make a new application. We can accept it at any time.


Dear Parents,
