May 4, 2024 Open House

Please follow these instructions to attend our Open House for the 2024-2025 academic year.

  1. Fill out all Student Information here.
  2. Fill out the Language Background survey here. Preschool-age students (4 years old and fully potty trained) are exempt from the Language Background Survey.
  3. Fill out the Appointment time slot here.
  4. Please review this video here about the school and our curriculum before attending Open House.

During Open House, you will have the opportunity to:

  1. Have your child(ren) sit in class to observe and participate in one of our classes.
  2. Please bring any questions you may have.
  3. Students for JHL placement will be assessed.
  4. If you are interested in registering for the following school year, we will put your information in the Parent Portal and place you on a waitlist for the class.*

*Please note that you are not guaranteed a spot when you are placed on a waitlist in the Parent Portal.


Once all the existing families have re-registered for the next school year, we will know the availability and contact you to complete the registration process when spots become available. We will continue filling spots until the beginning of the school year.

The OCG school year runs between August and June. We hold Open House days in the spring (usually February and May), where prospective families have the opportunity to visit classes and register for the upcoming school year.

New families may also enroll during the fall when the school year begins, depending on class availability. Students who already have Japanese language ability may also set up a language assessment appointment for enrollment options during the school year.

Please visit our Contact Page to set up registration appointments for Open House, fall enrollment, or assessment opportunities after enrollment closes.


Our basic tuition for 2023-2024 is $1350 per student annually ($135 per month).

Starting in 2023-2024, tuition will be collected monthly through our Parent Portal, and all families will be required to have an up to date payment method on file (auto-pay). Parents have the option of using ACH or a credit card as their payment method.

Multi-student discounts are available for students within the same family.


New Student Registration Fee

New students pay a one-time New Student Registration fee of $100 per student ($50 if you register during our Open House.)


Multiple Student Discount

We offer discounts if you have more than one child in any of our classes:


  • 1 child: $1350 per year
  • 2 children: $2250 per year
  • 3 children: $3150 per year
  • 4 children: $3900 per year
School Management Fee

OCG assesses a School Management Fee of $250 per family ($125 for a single-parent family) per year (2023-2024).

OCG may offer opportunities for families to work off all or part of this fee through participation in specific fundraising activities such as a Huntington Beach Fireworks booth. These opportunities are contingent on OCG’s participation in such events.


Committee Requirement

OCG is a parent-run school and requires all families to participate in one of our committees.

Families that do not fulfill committee requirements will be assessed a $500 Committee Opt-Out Fee per year ($250 for single-parent families).

Please see the Committee Descriptions page for details on each committee.
