A hearty welcome to Japhet School! Japhet School is an independent, coeducational school for preschool through 8th-grade students. We are located in Clawson, Michigan.

Founded in 1973, Japhet School provides strong academic fundamentals built on a foundation of character education. Each Japhet student shares in the responsibilities and privileges of the joyful, supportive and cooperative environment that is the Japhet School. Small classes, committed and caring faculty, and consistently high standards encourage every student to grow, question, learn and excel to his or her full potential.

At Japhet we are doing more than preparing our students for higher education; we are preparing them for life. We encourage students to be active life-long learners and enthusiastic participants in their school, community, and the world.

“Children develop character by what they see, what they hear, and what they are repeatedly led to do.”

— James Stenson

I encourage you to experience the Japhet difference first-hand by contacting me for more information or to schedule a visit.

Thank you for your interest and desire to learn about our school!
