At GKA, 70% of the instruction is given in English. Thus, our students’ English abilities get higher as they advance to the higher grade. For this reason, transfer students are expected to be well prepared for classes taught in English. Also, as the instructions for Japanese Language Arts and Social Studies are in Japanese, transfer students are also expected to be fluent in Japanese. Please check out the information below regarding qualifications for transfer students.

※New grade 1 students are required to take an entrance examination in the fall prior to the April start of school. Entrance into the junior high and senior high school is by entrance examinations and interviews for transfer students only.
