Welcome to our school website!

Fuji Sacred Heart is a Catholic missionary school for girls from Grade 7 to Grade 12, surrounded by beautiful nature at the foot of Mt. Fuji. Our school is a welcoming community with students from 17 different prefectures, where they learn to build a relationship of trust within our “Family.”  

Our aim is to educate girls as women of wisdom with a sense of global citizenship willingly committing themselves towards building a better world.  We offer a variety of extra-curricular activities and programs as well as a high-standard of academic learning.  We are a UNESCO associated school and are part of the network of the Sacred Heart Schools both in Japan and in the wider world. 

Students are the hope for the future. We believe Fuji Sacred Heart School is an ideal nurturing environment, where each student can learn to recognize their unique gifts and talents, and live life to the full.          

We look forward to welcoming you to our school soon.

Philosophy of Education

Fuji Sacred Heart School endeavors to help the students grow to be women of wisdom, who know that each one is unique and precious in God’s love, have a sense of solidarity and mission as a global citizen, and are ready to commit themselves towards building a better world.
