KIU Academy is following the directives from the Japanese government. Therefore, school will be closed from March 2 (Monday) until the spring break.

Currently the school office will continue to open weekdays from 9:00 - 17:00.

However, since we will be operating with reduced staff, we ask you to contact us at kiu@kyotoiu.ac.jp as much as possible. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

(UPDATED) School Closed From MONDAY (3/2)

Dear Parents,

 KIU Academy is following the directives from the Japanese government. Therefore school will be closed from March 2 (Monday) until the spring break. The exact date for the end of the school closure at KIUA is not defined yet. We will announce it when it is decided.

 For Elementary students, the academic year will be concluded today (February 28). Students will be issued final grades based on the work submitted up to this point. Next week we will also mail you a package with study materials for your children to use at home. We hope that this will help them retain the knowledge they gained this year and be prepared to return to school next April.

 For Middle and High School students, assignments will be made available online (on FACTS Family Portal and through email, etc.) so that they can complete the essential content for this term. This means that your child will need access to the internet and a computer or tablet. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.

 During this period of school closure, students are NOT ALLOWED on campus under any circumstances. All communication with teachers is to be done via the online resources we make available, or by standard mail. Middle and High school students should spend school hours at home doing school work. All students should avoid unnecessary outings, public transportation and crowded areas.

 We ask parents to avoid calling the school phones because we will be operating with reduced staff.  Information for parents will continue to be posted on FACTS Family Portal and on the “News and Communication Portal” section of the school website ( kiua.kyotoiu.ac.jp ). If you have questions that are not addressed in the announcements, please email the school at kiu@kyotoiu.ac.jp

 A final decision regarding the Graduation ceremony for High School seniors will be made in the next two weeks. We will keep monitoring the COVID-19 situation before reaching a decision. If a ceremony is held, it will probably be held with the minimum number of people possible (as per governmental recommendation).

 KIUA will continue accepting applications for admissions, but for the time being all inquiries will be handled by phone and document reviews. Visitors to campus will be kept to a minimum.

 

Thank you for your understanding and support,

KIUA Administration

KIU has just taken the First Step toward a New Campus

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Thank you so much for your continuous support and cooperation on behalf of KIU Academy.

We would like to update you on our search for a new school location within the Kyotanabe area. Since the land where A and B buildings are located is rented and lease renewal is not an option, we have been looking for a new location for several years. Below you will find basic information about our progress. When there are further developments, we will be sending out updates to you and other supporters of Kyoto International University Academy.

On Friday, February 1, KIU signed the purchase agreement contract for land located four hundred meters north of Shintanabe Station. This is the first step in the long process of buying and developing property to move KIU to a permanent new campus. For completion of this process, there are several steps that will need to be accomplished.

Upcoming phases of the process:

  1. Land sale contract
  2. Kyoto Board of Education campus move approval
  3. Kyoto Prefectural Land Development approval
  4. Bank Loan formal approval 
  5. School Building Permit

It will take about a year to obtain the necessary official permits before the purchase of the property becomes final.  Although a new building has not yet been designed, our goal is to increase classroom space and build a gym on our own property.

As we proceed with planning, we are looking for experts with experience in land development, concrete construction, and green energy to advise us on this project.  If you or someone you know well would be willing to help us, please make an appointment to meet with Peter Blocksom. Since we expect to encounter many challenges, we ask for your prayers, as well as understanding and cooperation.

 

Thank you very much,

Peter Blocksom

President
