The University was established in 1949. The first president Yoshishige Abe emphasized to Gakushuin students the importance of having a sense of responsibility and to take pride in being a “spiritually” chosen person. Today, the University has 4 faculties with 17 departments as well as graduate schools and professional graduate schools.

Boys’ Senior High School

To meet the interests and career paths of each of our students, the school has adopted small-size classes while increasing the proportion of elective classes. Because students from overseas are regularly enrolled in the Boys’ Senior High School, our students are exposed to a wide variety of international perspectives.

Tracing back its origins to the Peeresses’ School founded in 1885, the school made a fresh new start as a private school in 1947 to instill female students with appropriate noble character and intellectual capabilities in a way that goes with the times. The schools provide an integrated education from junior to senior high school and are filled with an energetic and free-spirited atmosphere.
