Capital campaign to help build the new Yokohama International School campus
Approaching the centenary of Yokohama International School’s founding in a few years’ time, the school has made the strategic decision to relocate to a new purpose-built campus in the Honmoku area of Yokohama with a target move-in date of January 2022. The new campus will provide myriad advantages for our learning community, including larger and more flexible learning spaces better aligned with our IB learning programs, greatly expanded athletic facilities, with a full-size soccer pitch, double gym and 25-meter indoor swimming pool, an integrated performing arts center with larger auditorium, black-box drama space and larger music rooms, dedicated parent/community room and much, much more.
The new campus is by far the largest investment in the school’s history and will be funded primarily from capital reserves that we have steadily built up over a decade, proceeds from the sale of our current property and low-interest loan financing. In addition, the YIS2C Capital Campaign invites the extended YIS community – including current and former families and staff, alumni, corporate employers and other supporters – to help realize this dream. The campaign seeks to raise ¥200 million (about $1.8 million) over the course of the project to fund enhancements in a range of areas, including sustainability, greening the campus, play spaces, performing arts and athletics.
