Seisen International School is a Catholic School run by the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus operated under the auspices of the Seisen Jogakuin Education Foundation. It is recognized by the Ministry of Education of Japan and accredited by the European Council of International Schools and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Seisen International School provides a college-preparatory programme which serves the needs of the diplomatic, business and professional members of the international community and of Japanese children who have lived abroad and wish to continue their education in English. The Montessori Nursery and Kindergarten accepts boys and girls from age three to five. Grades 1-12 are for girls only. Instruction is in English. The IB programme is offered and USA College Board examinations (including AP) are held at the school. The administration and faculty endeavour not only to educate the students in academic areas but also to foster their spiritual and emotional growth. A counsellor is available to all students at all levels. Teachers are also involved in counselling and advising students. Religious education is offered to all students.

Teachers hold university degrees and teaching certificates in the grade or subject for which they are responsible. Many of them have training beyond the Bachelor degree. Seisen has 701 students from more than 60 countries. Virtually all graduates go on to college in the USA, UK, Japan or other countries.

Classes are held five days a week from the end of August to mid-June. Students can take part in various co-curricular programmes (debate, speech, drama, artscape, brainbowl, maths field, choir, bell choir, dance), general activities and in organisations like the National Honor Society and the Student Council.
