Educational Philosophy

The parent body of Hyogo University, the Mutsumi School Foundation, was founded in 1921 with the aim to guide children through the spirit of harmony. It currently has three campuses in Hyogo Prefecture. The Kakogawa campus is home to Hyogo University (the Graduate School, Faculty of Economics and Information Science, Faculty of Health Science, Faculty of Lifelong Welfare, and Junior College) and a university-affiliated kindergarten. The Suma campus is home to the Hyogo University-affiliated Sumanoura High School and Suma Kindergarten. Kobe International High School and Junior High School are both located at the Takakuradai campus. We have evolved into an educational institution with seven different schools. The founding spirit of the Mutsumi School Foundation is expressed by the “spirit of harmony.” As such, we value gratitude, tolerance, and compromise while also respecting the individuality and independence of each student. This spirit of harmony is rooted in Buddhism.
