Our History

“Go into the world and proclaim
the Gospel to the whole creation.”

(Mark 16:15 ESV)

In obedience to this command, American evangelical Christians and the Japanese Christians who had joined them in their work founded MeySen in the early 1960’s. Over the past 50 years, MeySen Academy has grown from a humble “tent-making” enterprise into one of Japan’s premier educational institutions specializing in early childhood development and English as a Foreign Language (EFL). The foundation of MeySen’s educational model has always been a Christ-centered and holistic approach to English education, which incorporates the arts, nature, humanities, imagination, and physical education.
