Sundai Preparatory School (駿台予備学校 Sundai Yobigakkō) is the oldest[1] and one of the most prominent extracurricular college-preparatory schools (juku) in Japan. It was founded in 1918 by Toshiharu Yamazaki (山崎 寿春 Yamazaki Toshiharu), a Japanese English Literature scholar and a graduate of Amherst College, Harvard College, and Yale University (Graduate School). [2][3]Along with Kawai-juku and Yoyogi Seminar, it is one of the three largest groups of preparatory schools, and is known for its academic rigour that often goes well beyond the high school curricula. Sundai Preparatory School is regularly ranked as first by the number of acceptances to the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University, both considered the most competitive universities in Japan. [4]
