Japhet is an independent day school that is known for its teachings of character and ethics through individualized programs. The school runs a preschool, pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, grade school, and latchkey program. Although founded in 1973 as a school for the children of Christian Scientists, religious instruction has never been part of its curriculum. Enrollment was opened to students of all faiths in 1996. In 2001, the school won the National School of Character Award. Other recognition came when Target Stores named Japhet an Outstanding School in America and the National Council of Spiritual and Ethical Education chose the school to host and participate in a national conference on honor codes.
