We’re Seed Academy Japan.

A little about us.
In business since 2014 with locations around Shinagawa / Kita-Shinagawa / Mizonokuchi / Yokohama / etc.
Our Schools are a mix between a cram school (Juku) and an International school but with a much more close and family vibe.
We are not a Conversation school or Nursery.
Our Students range from 4 to 18 years old (
average around the middle) with a wide variety of needs.
We offer much more customization in lessons and other services like International/national camps and study abroad programs. Our tutors have opportunities to take part in these fun and interesting programs all over Japan and in other countries.
We have a main curriculum with set books and homework.

Most of our tutors teach the same students weekly and become friendly. We hope for our tutors to be a kind of role model and mentor to students. Not just about their studies but life also.

If this sort of genuine desire to help students grow in many ways is something you can relate to then we’d love to have you at Seed Academy.
