School Emblem and Mottos

■School Emblem

Our School Emblem is made by the integration of the symbols, “髙” and “W”.

“髙” stands for High school’s “High”, and also is a symbol of the triple-layered turret and stone walls of Akashi Castle. It shows that students at Akashi Josai are independent and stand up to any trials like the turret and stone walls.

“W” is the first letter of “west(西)”. Its shape reflects Akashi’s city flower, the chrysanthemum, and Harima’s open sea’s waves, which symbolize “deep love” and “far-reaching ideal”, respectively.

Appealing points


Our systematic and precise career guidance considers students’ various personalities and aptitudes. In the integrated study time of the 1st grade, we focus on global education and career education through activities such as career lectures, group discussions and poster sessions. In fiscal 2015, we were sellected as a “Super Global High School Associate” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, so we are striving harder to improve our global education.
We provide students with appropriate curriculum and class division based on their degree of academic achievement. While we expect our students to understand their own personalities, and to consider their career paths thoroughly, we ensure our students receive the best possible support based on the “Josai 1000-Day Plan”
