Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ) provided and continues to provide a Christian education for many students. A comment I have heard from teachers and principals from other Kanto Plain (Tokyo Area) International Schools, is that CAJ will accept students who have some learning difficulties. We do have a support team that is willing to work with students who struggle, but we are not equipped to meet the needs of a large number of students who struggle. So, we challenged ourselves to to find English International schools who work with these students. We found one such school, International Secondary School (http://www.isstokyo.com/).

It was an interesting visit and a good opportunity to make us think outside the box with regards to education. Sadly, we have not been able to find an English option like this, that is a Christian school. I will continue to pray for families who have difficult decisions to make for their children wanting a different style of English Christian education, here in the Tokyo.
