Course introduction

  • Shoshi Course

    This course is designed so that the students can study from a wide and varied curriculum leading on to higher education or employment. Especially, the study of English, Sendai feudal clan manners, and club activities (at national level) are the center of this course, and the students learn about the skills and attitudes required to become members of society. During the class "Sendai feudal clan manners," students take lessons in traditional manners inherited from the age of Masamune Date.

  • Type 1

    Aiming to pass directly into highly-selective universities upon graduation, students in Course Type 1 study intensively for nine periods a day without club activities. Through study in high school, they can acquire academic skills needed not only for entrance examinations, but also for their future paths in life.

  • Type 2

    Course Type 2 is a unique course that includes a wide variety of educational opportunities such as the acquirements of foreign language, international understanding, and global education. We are the course that can acquire real world competence by learning the methods and abilities to recognize the issues and solve them."We do our best in everything we try!"

What is "Global"?

Globalization describes the interplay across cultures of macro-social forces.
These forces include religion, politics, and economics. Globalization can erode and universalize the characteristics of a local group.


  • Students will show awareness of the Japanese role as a member of the Asia Pacific region.

  • Students will learn to imbibe both 志, which means motive, and 智, which means wisdom, so that they may apply this knowledge to their role in society.
