Canadian Academy offers an advanced college preparatory education based on International Baccalaureate programmes taught in English. In high school, students can take either the full Diploma Programme, or certificates in individual Diploma courses. CA is authorized for both the Middle Years Programme (MYP), taught from grades 6 to 10, and the Primary Years Programme (PYP), taught from age three to grade 5. CA and the IB provide the transferable education that international students require.
Canadian Academy’s nine-acre campus is a purpose-built facility, opened in 1990 on Rokko Island in Kobe. CA’s facilities include not only fully equipped classrooms, science laboratories, multi-purpose rooms, a fitness center, and specialty teaching areas designed with modern educational needs of the students in mind, but also two gymnasiums, and two theaters. CA is the center of students’ daily lives. The school itself is ideally located in the residential area of Rokko Island, a modern urban center, which also boasts a hospital, parks, shops, restaurants and other schools.
The Early Learning and Activities Center (ELAC), opened in January 2008 enabling CA to more fully meet the growing academic and extracurricular needs of its international and multiaged student body. ELAC contains specially designed classrooms on the first floor for our two- through five-year-old programs, as well as the P&G Black Box theater and a second gymnasium on the second floor. These facilities provide flexibility for the scheduling of a multitude of athletic and artistic events.
