Tamagawa Academy (K-12) was founded in 1929 as an elementary education organization. Later a secondary education division was added, and in 1947 Tamagawa University received approval for establishment as an ‘old system’ (pre-war) university. As an academy (gakuen) which encompasses all school grades, we currently provide education from kindergarten to graduate school level within a single campus.
With our primary educational principle of ‘Zenjin’ Education, and as a private school with definite individuality, we aim to build rich and harmonious human culture beginning with scholarship, morality, arts, religion, the body and everyday life. It is through education that we become better people. Education is an activity that improves a person - starting at the time of birth and continuing on throughout life.
Tamagawa founder Kuniyoshi Obara characterized human beings as having an unique individuality from birth, and also a commonality with everyone in the world. The mission of Tamagawa education is to progress towards a realization of this principle and to produce outstanding individuals who can contribute not only to Japanese society but to the world.
