Message from the Chairman / School History


Message from the Chairman, Board of Directors of DENPA Educational Institutions.

DENPA Educational Institutions marked its 70th anniversary in 2022.
Our history began in 1952 when we opened our first school. Since then, we have grown to be a prominent school group consisting of a university, junior college, one high school, eight professional training colleges and a Japanese-language school.
Currently we have 9,000 students and over 189,000 successful graduates.
With over 1,000 teachers and staff to support the students. Learning and classes are based on teacher assignments given at each school.
We strive to create an atmosphere in which students and teachers feel grateful and say "Arigato," meaning "Thank you," to one another. This closely supervised learning philosophy has been a successful key in getting our motivated students difficult-to-achieve qualifications and highly desirable jobs.
We accept international students from all over the world and our international graduates play an important role in society and the workforce of Japan, as well as in their home countries. Through these international exchanges we can contribute to all of our students' global-mind.
Hearing "Arigato (Thank you)" even beyond our domestic borders would please us greatly and we look forward to having a world in which everyone would say "Arigato (Thank you)" from their heart.

Chairman Akiharu Ogawa
