What is the Sakura Japanese Language School?

The Sakura Japanese Language School at Renison University College provides an environment for students (junior kindergarten to grade six) to enjoy learning Japanese while fostering the four language skills: speaking, listening, writing, and reading. Our goal is to expose our students to Japanese language and culture while developing a broader perspective for the multicultural society we live in.

How to Register & How to Pay (SAK)

How to register

Registrations must be submitted through our student portal.

Please note that there is a slightly different process for registration of those under the age of 12, such as those who participate in our Sakura programming.

Parents will need to use their first name, last name and contact name to create a profile on behalf of their child as those under the age of 12 are not able to create their own profile through the system.  All Sakura Language School participants will be asked to provide a completed survey / registration form upon the completion of the registration process to allow us to connect portal information for parents and children.

Follow these steps to register for a continuing education course:

  1. Visit the Continuing Education Courses page in portal.
  2. Select ‘Details’ next to your course of interest.
  3. Select ‘Details’ next to the course session you want to register for (if there are no course sessions listed, dates have not yet been confirmed for upcoming classes; please check back later).
  4. Select ‘Add to Cart’; if you are not signed in to or signed up for an account, you will be prompted to do so now.
  5. Once in your shopping cart, select ‘Checkout’.

You will receive confirmation of your registration through e-mail to the e-mail address attached to your account.  In addition, Sakura Language School participants will receive another e-mail communication where they are to provide a completed survey / registration form to allow us to connect portal information for parents and children.
