The vision of the International Christian Academy of Nagoya is to grow as an international school that provides for the English-based academic needs of both Japanese and expatriate families within an atmosphere that fosters Christian character and growth.
The International Christian Academy of Nagoya is a Christ-centered school that impacts the world by providing students with an education based on a biblical worldview in an environment of academic excellence, while cultivating respect for people of all cultures and religions.
Philosophy of Education
ICAN is a Christian school founded on the belief that God is the source of all truth and that true education is based on His revealed word, the Bible (John 14:6, 17:7). We believe the qualities of such an education include the following:
A traditional and well-rounded curriculum coupled with high expectations for student achievement and
lifelong learning that equips them to become biblically-informed individuals, effective communicators,
responsible citizens, and engaged learners.
Biblical integration expressed through all subjects and aspects of school life.
A distinctively Christian environment in which students are nurtured and experience grace
in the context of a caring community.
Cooperation with Parents
Cooperation with parents in the education and character development of each individual student.
An international atmosphere that provides a welcome environment for children of all cultures and
nations and fosters self-worth and mutual respect.
