Membership Qualifications


SSS was established to help Christian evangelical missionary families in Japan who homeschool their children or supplement Japanese schools with English studies at home. Over the years we have welcomed other families to SSS who desire this same kind of Christ-centered educational help. We have quite a few families from international marriages.

What SSS is not…

  • SSS is not a school to teach English to non-native speakers, though we can help students maintain and progress in English skills.
  • SSS does not provide regular classes. SSS parents teach their own children or hire tutors. SSS supports parents and tutors to help them teach their own children by providing resources and consultation.
