Educational Curriculum

The Senior High School has 50-minute classes, six periods a day, five days a week.
Our curriculum is created with the goal of "striving to nurture people with comprehensive discernment and insight who blaze their own trails in life."
We build on the basic scholastic ability emphasized at the Junior High School, while integrating students entering from other junior high schools.

To help our students cope with diverse university and career choices, including internal advancement to Aoyama Gakuin University, we offer elective subjects from second year; over half of the subjects taken in third year are electives, allowing students to study more of what interests them.

Compulsory English language classes are divided into levels of difficulty across all years. The faculty of Aoyama Gakuin University and Women’s Junior College also hold "Academic Introductory Courses" on Saturdays to help guide students as part of their comprehensive learning.
