We are an independent, coeducational school located in Clawson, Michigan for preschool through eighth grade students.
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.
“Children develop character by what they see, what they hear, and what they are repeatedly led to do.”
— James Stenson
