A Family Laughs During Admissions Tour
Admissions

Is ASIJ the school for your family?

Joining ASIJ

If you are moving to Japan for the first time, we are here to help you with a very important decision—choosing the right school for your children.

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. If you are moving to Japan for the first time, we are here to help you with a very important decision—choosing the right school for your children.

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 below.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you in the near future!

2020-2021 School Year: Currently, our ELC (Roppongi), Middle and High Schools are fully enrolled. Our Elementary School has extremely limited seat availability for the remainder of the school year. Please inquire prior to starting an application for the 2020-2021 school year.

2021-2022 School Year: Accepting applications for all grade levels


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
Appointments to visit the Early Learning Center can be made by contacting 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, please check back in early February for information regarding the re-opening of public campus tours.

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 orient parents, explain admissions procedures and answer questions about ASIJ.

Early Learning Center
This year, ELC Open Houses will be held in small groups, on-campus. To maintain our community's health and safety, we will be limiting the number of people attending each event. We ask for your cooperation and understanding as only families with children eligible to apply for the 2021-2022 school year will be invited, and only one parent per family will be allowed to join. Thank you for your understanding. Please contact us at elc@asij.ac.jp to sign up for the event.
