Welcome to all returning and new students of Yokohama Christian School for the 2017-2018 academic year. All staff and teachers are excited to begin the new year. This year our school theme is: Stewardship: It’s not Mine; It’s God’s. The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Psalm 24:1. Stewardship is one way we can teach children to care for themselves, their school, and their personal belongings. A school theme lends cohesion to the entire school year and ties classroom and school wide activities together.
For families new to Yokohama, we welcome you and encourage you to explore our website. One of the best things about living in Yokohama is the educational options for children. This makes selecting the “right” school a challenge, as each school has its own distinct culture. At YCS, we are excited to serve the Yokohama community in providing:
- A Christian school for children 2–11 years old (preschool through grade 5) in mixed aged classes.
- A family-focused school – helping parents be successful in their parenting is top priority.
- A simple structure to our school day and activities to allow families to spend quality time together
- An academically strong program to students who possess strong, God-given intellectual gifts and come from families who desire a rigorous, classical Christian education for their child.
We look forward to a fruitful 2017-2018 school year and thank you for your support!
Serving our Lord,
Rev. Linda Schmidt
