About Us


Founding of the Academy and School Principles

Tetsuei Mizuki, founder of Chikushi Jogakuen, the then President of the North American Ministry of the Jodo Shin Shu, Honganji Sect, observed the development of education for women in the United States and realized the importance of providing education for women in Japan as well.

That led him to establish Chikushi Jogakuen. The religious foundation of Chikushi Jogakuen is Buddhism, and above all, the teachings of Shinran, the founder of Jodo Shin Shu. Three of his main teachings, "Autonomy," "Harmony," and "Gratitude," comprise the Academy's Codes of Conduct. "Autonomy" refers to the state in which one reflects on oneself with his mind's eye, makes judgments, and disciplines himself. It helps one to nurture a heart that will truly treasure oneself.

The spirit of Autonomy will enhance "Harmony." Within the relationships in which people can respect one another, we understand that our own existence is supported by the existence of others. This will help us develop the sense of "Gratitude." The spirit of "Autonomy" will enhance "Harmony," which will nurture the spirit of "Gratitude." Our Academy's Codes of Conduct are the essence for the human development which will help each of us grow as a human being with a sound mind in a sound body.
