Founded in 1973, Japhet School is an independent school, serving children the metropolitan Detroit area in preschool through eighth grade. Its mission is to nurture and prepare each child for life by integrating character education with a strong academic program. The school provides small classes of fewer than 20 students in each, which enables teachers to challenge students with academic material that is appropriate for their intellectual readiness, regardless of age or grade. Integrated with strong academics is Japhet School’s national award-winning character education curriculum, which builds a peaceful community within the school and creates leaders with integrity. Japhet is a National School of Character: it was the first school in Michigan -- and the first independent school in the country -- to receive this award.
Like most private schools, tuition covers a portion of what it costs to educate each child at Japhet School. The remaining balance comes from donations, bequests, and grants. Japhet School is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, which means your donation is tax-deductible. Multi-year givers at a higher level are members of our Hands of Hope Society, who are recognized with a special reception each fall.
