Admissions Visit

Tours are only offered on a limited basis due to the current pandemic. Strict safety measures are required such as temperature checks at the entrance and masks at all times.

Early Learning Center
To learn more about our Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten programs at our ELC in Roppongi, or if you would like to inquire about visiting the Early Learning Center, please contact ELC Director, Christy Carrillo at elc@asij.ac.jp or calling 03-5771-4344.

Chofu Campus
Campus visits are currently restricted to newly enrolled families. As many families have recently arrived in Japan and have yet to see the campus where their children will attend, our priority is to give these parents a chance to see the campus.

If you are interested in learning more about ASIJ, please contact enroll@asij.ac.jp to schedule a Google Meet. Due to the pandemic, we are not offering public campus tours at this time.

During your visit, you will have an opportunity to meet with a member of the Admissions staff and to see the campus and its facilities. Please note that there is no formal interview required prior to admission. The visit will help you learn more about ASIJ and whether the school is a good fit for your child's learning style and your family's educational objectives. We appreciate the chance to meet families and children prior to admission, but please view the visit as your opportunity to ask questions and gain the information you need to assess your school choices in Tokyo.


Open Houses

For those in the early stages of the school research and application process, several open houses are held each year. The purpose of the Open House is to explain admissions procedures and answer questions about ASIJ.

Early Learning Center
The Early Learning Center offers open house events for prospective parents throughout the year. These events provide insight into our philosophy and approach, and into the experiences of our children and families. ASIJ seeks to know, value, and care for each member of our community and this effort starts during our application process. We know this is an important decision for your family and we are honored that you are considering our program.

Our open house events are scheduled at 9am on the following dates:

October 14 (full)
October 21 (full)
November 11 (full)
December 9 (full)
February 24
March 10

Please note that due to our health and safety guidelines, we are only inviting families with children who are eligible to apply for the 2023–2024 school year and only one parent per family.

Please contact the ELC at elc@asij.ac.jp with any questions or register here.

Chofu Campus

The American School in Japan Chofu campus offers a variety of in-person and virtual open campus events for prospective families. We host these events to give applicants insight into our school’s culture, educational philosophy and our approach to teaching and learning. The American School in Japan seeks to know, value, and care for each member of our community and this effort starts during the application process. We know that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and we are honored that you are considering our program.
