"Share a vision and make it happen. "
Alumni and Former Students
Seisen Former Students’ Association (SFSA) was established in August 2010 to unite all former students of Seisen.
Our key mission is to establish a global community of Seisen former students and provide a network for everyone to connect with each other, remain connected to Seisen, and keep updated on the school’s current news and events.
Our association is over 5,000 former students strong. Over ninety-five percent of our former students live outside Japan. Under the guidance of Sr. Asunción Lecubarri (Former School Head), Sr. Concesa Martin (Former School Head), Sr. Margaret Scott (Former School Head), and Ms. Adelfa Armentia (Former Faculty), we are active throughout the year with over 70 former students working for the association from around the world.
SFSA organizes the Alumni Booth at Festival of Nations every year with former students volunteering and donating from within and outside Japan. We fundraise for the association and school, give scholarships to Seisen current students, donate to Seisen, share internship and job information.
Since 2012, we present the Seisen Spirit Award at Graduation to a graduating senior for her outstanding school spirit and pride. In November 2018, Seisen Former Students’ Association officially joined the Seisen Schools Alumni Board to represent Seisen International School as one of six Seisen schools in Japan and attend the annual meeting at various Seisen schools.
We work together from around the world to strengthen our Seisen bond, spread Seisen spirit, and make our association as great as it can be.
