Learning to Love, Loving to Learn

Seisen is a Catholic, international, college-preparatory, girls day school with a coeducational kindergarten, which educates world citizens to become men and women for others and with others, in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Seisen's mission is to provide a safe environment in order to empower each student, through shared responsibility, creativity, and human interdependence, to develop their unique talents and to become competent and compassionate players in our global society, capable of empowering others and of bringing hope and peace to our ever-changing world.

Seisen is operated by the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and is part of the Seisen Educational Foundation. Seisen is accredited by the Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. Seisen serves the international and diplomatic communities in Tokyo, with an enrolment of 635 students representing over 50 nationalities. Development of international mindedness and respect for the diversity of cultural and religious differences is central to life at Seisen.

Our guiding principles give our students at each level of the school a sense of their own amazing self-worth, a sense of personal dignity and a sense of respect for others and the environment. The service and leadership opportunities available to our students enable them to become, from a young age, agents of positive change in the world.

In addition to the support given by homeroom teachers, advisors and subject teachers, qualified counselors are available to all students. A college advisor helps students in college selection and career orientation. Opportunities in a wide range of extracurricular activities in both the Elementary, Middle and High School levels complement the Montessori, IB-PYP and IBDP programs and prepare the students to be motivated, responsible and active participants in a diverse, international community, and our young women have garnered a reputation of being talented, focused, and highly successful in these various pursuits on the local and international competitive levels.
