Simulated Day of an International student
Students enroll in a first or second-year high school class, and follow the same schedule as Kenmei Academy students. In addition to attending general practical lessons, international students participate in special programs and extracurricular lessons that give them opportunities to experience both traditional and modern Japanese culture.
Students will ride the train or take the bus from their homestay to school.

Kenmei Academy's traditional "Stop, Bow, and Smile."
Students stop to greet one another with a warm, friendly smile.
8:30 Morning prayer
Students sing the week's hymn, say the daily prayer, and listen to the week's scripture reading.
Students then have a minute of silence before classes start in order to calm their mind for the day ahead.
8:40 Morning reading, quiz
Junior high school students improve their reading comprehension abilities with a morning reading, and high school students confirm their learning progress through quizzes.
These activities form a unique habit of repetition and thus solidify all that they have learned.

Teachers provide support to every student’s individual needs and provide detailed guidance in order to enhance a student's understanding of their respective fields.
Everyone shares the responsibility of cleaning classrooms and common spaces.
Students and teachers clean together to keep the school neat and tidy.
15:20 End of day prayer
After cleaning, a minute of silence is performed to reflect back on the day and calm the mind.
The schedule for the day ahead is then confirmed in SHR (short home room).
16:00～ After school
Each student’s personality shines through in his or her sports and cultural activities. Their bright and energetic voices make the school feel immersed in positive energy.
