A Message from the President

@@Although education has been shaken by recent, unprecedented changes here in Japan and around the world, we find ourselves filled with energy and optimism. We are looking forward to what tomorrow will bring. Many factors that are normally viewed negatively - low birthrates in developed countries, world-wide economic challenges and the ongoing reform of public education systems in many countries - have become sources of new inspiration for us.

@@What does the future hold for Chuman Gakuin and its group companies? Until recently, our industry has grown only within the confines of the exam preparation market. Exam preparation services will continue to be important in the future. However, if we broaden our viewpoint a little, we can see that future opportunities will arise from the basic educational goal of "forming people". It is the importance of this goal, which incites our passion to grow.

@@ As long as we ensure that each member of our gfamilyh continues to grow personally, while respecting universal and timeless truths, we will continue to prosper, no matter how the times may change.

Takanobu Chuman
