Why Saint Maur?

Preparing Students for Life

Undoubtedly, one of the most valuable benefits of a Saint Maur education is preparation for the future. We provide students with rigorous academics and robust extracurricular options, which results in a 100% matriculation rate into four-year colleges and universities.

A Caring, Family Environment

Since 1872, Saint Maur has functioned as a school community where moral values govern all that we do to help students, parents and staff reach their full potential. We are an inclusive center that supports each member of our school community, and students receive unparalleled care in a safe, supportive, diverse, and inclusive learning environment.

Traditional Values

For 140 years, strong character and moral citizenship have been emphasized in all areas of school life at Saint Maur. We believe that our Student Behavior Profile, Essential Outcomes and Zero-Tolerance Policy towards bullying are important guiding principles throughout the development of our students. A Saint Maur student works morally and cooperatively with all people, and assumes the responsibility required to combat social injustice.

Multifaith and Multinational

We prepare students from over 40 countries to be global citizens through dynamic, international curricula. As a Catholic foundation, Saint Maur functions as a community that respects and values cultural and religious difference. The cultural diversity inherent in our school is one of our strengths, and students develop the knowledge, skills, and internationally-minded approach necessary to contribute productively to an increasingly interdependent global society.

Progressive in Education

Although the school remains traditional in values, it is progressive in educational innovation. Saint Maur has continuously been among the first schools in Japan, Asia, and the world to adopt and develop the Montessori system, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) program, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Today, we continue to open new, state-of-the-art facilities, such as our dedicated Science Center, and introduce students to the most cutting-edge technology.
