Aoyama Gakuin Yokohama Eiwa starts to be a coeducational school in 2018. We teach that you can find your mission from God, and you can spend life pursuing a career. We have chosen to teach both boys and girls. Our school motto is to “Purify your heart and serve others.” – We are going to carry this out and make an effort to produce people who can help others and contribute to society.
