Thank you for your interest in The American School in Japan. In the Admissions pages, along with the information you will need to obtain a clear understanding of the admissions process for our campuses in Chofu (grades K to 12) and Roppongi (nursery, pre-K and Kindergarten), you will be able to review admissions procedures.

Admissions staff at both campuses are available to answer your questions via phone and email. We welcome your requests for an appointment for an admissions visit, a tour of the campus, or to attend an open house event. Further information about admissions visits and open houses at both campuses can be found in the Visit ASIJ section.
