Our Educational Mission

Creating Young Global Leaders

To cultivate quality and academic ability that will make dreams come true. The Junten educational process makes it possible for students to visualize their future, and to find their future directions, and to identify the objectives.

Academic Standards

1. We value true academic integrity and curiosity.


True academic ability extends beyond the skills traditionally required to attend prestigious universities. Junten fosters unique academic qualities that top universities and the global community truly look for in young global leaders, including creative thinking, public speaking, and problem solving skills.

2. We value the individual and the global community.

Junten is focused on empowering students to develop and nurture their individual personalities. Junten then links these student leaders to the global community so they can evaluate and implement innovative ideas, creating a new generation of humanitarians.

Greetings from the School Principal

School Principal

Junten Gakuen was established in 1834, with the spirit of “Junten Kyuugou,” natural truthfulness, in mind. Junten was founded as a private mathematics school, reformed into a boys Junior High school in the Meiji period, became a girls Senior High school under the new post-war system, and then in 1990, adopted the modern six-year junior and senior integrated high school format.

Currently, Junten Junior and Senior High School is focused on its goal of “creating knowledgeable global leaders”, and is implementing various educational activities for students to understand the value of a global education. The success of these challenges can be seen in Junten graduates’ academic and career achievements.

At Junten, we value personality development. We emphasize two pivotal developmental stages. During the Junior High stage, we nourish the students’ “independence,” and in the Senior High stage, we establish “identity.” In addition, in Junior High School, we feature categorized studies based upon the student’s preferences. In Senior High School, we expand on those preferences, broadening the students’ academic skills in order to achieve advanced goals, such as attending prestigious universities in Japan and abroad.
