Profile

Keio Academy of New York was established in 1990 by the Keio Gijuku (Keio Private School System) of Japan (which also operates Keio University, one of the most prestigious private schools in Japan) primarily to meet the needs of Japanese living overseas.

Inheriting traditions established by Yukichi Fukuzawa, Keio's founder, (whose picture appears on the Japanese 10,000 yen currency) Keio Academy of New York is a unique international private academic institution.

This school is making every effort to be a precursor in educating future leaders for the international scene as society heads into the 21st century. Keio Academy educates its students through a unique bilingual and bicultural educational curriculum.

Keio Academy is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees made up of both Japanese and Americans who are Keio University staff members and alumni, local community members, and corporate leaders committed to the philosophy of bilingual and bicultural education.

Keio Academy of New York is accredited by the New York State Department of Education and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan. In 2001, the school was accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS). Memberships are also held in the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), the College Board, the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), and Association of International Educators (NAFSA).
