On December 2021, 12, Meiji University signed a basic agreement with the school corporation Nihon Gakuen to make it an affiliated school. From April 23, 2026, Nihon Gakuen Junior and Senior High School will be co-educated as an affiliated school of Meiji University, and the name will be Setagaya Junior and Senior High School attached to Meiji University.In addition, from 4, we will start accepting new students through the entrance examination recommended by the attached high school to Meiji University.
Nihon Gakuen Junior and Senior High School, located in Matsubara, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, is a traditional boys' school founded in 1885 as the Tokyo English School.The educational policy is "to utilize each person's genius rather than to create a genius", and respects individuality and emphasizes personality education.The graduates have produced a number of celebrities, including Mr. Shigeru Yoshida, who served as Prime Minister, Mr. Shigeo Iwanami, the founder of Iwanami Shoten, and Mr. Taikan Yokoyama, a Japanese painting.
Meiji University has an educational philosophy of "strengthening" individual "", and the two schools, which have overlapping ideas, have built a relationship through a regional alliance project since 2012.From now on, we will provide consistent high school-university collaborative education through affiliated schools, and accept many students who have received education based on the educational philosophy of Meiji University from an early stage.
In the future, we will establish an affiliated school joint council with the school corporation Nihon Gakuen based on the basic agreement, and proceed with discussions toward the conclusion of the affiliated school agreement including more detailed contents.In addition, we will continue to provide more detailed information for the opening of affiliated schools in 2026, such as measures to develop educational characteristics different from existing affiliated schools, measures to improve the educational ability of teachers, details of the recommendation system, and corporate cooperation measures. We will hold discussions.
At Meiji University, affiliated schools established by a separate corporation are affiliated schools.This affiliated school is the Nakano Junior and Senior High School attached to Meiji University (April 24 affiliated school) and the Nakano Hachioji Junior and Senior High School attached to Meiji University (April 4 affiliated school) established by the school corporation Nakano Gakuen. It will be the third school following the conversion.
