About Us

** For the 2022-2023 school year, both the Youth and Adult Programs are held virtually due to COVID-19. **

Sakura Gakuen Japanese Language School is a nonprofit school which teaches not only the language, but the culture and tradition of Japan.

Our mission is to provide excellent Japanese language education for children and adults of diverse backgrounds. All are welcome to learn Japanese in a small class setting from our dedicated bilingual professionals.

The school was established in 1903 as a Japanese educational organization for Japanese immigrant children of Japanese immigrants, and has evolved to serve students from all backgrounds and prior exposure to the Japanese language.

Youth classes meet virtually on Saturday mornings September through June, divided in two semesters, and are held in parallel with the traditional public school schedule. For more information, click HERE.
