Akita Refresh Academy (あきたリフレッシュ学園; Akita Rifuresshu Gakuen) is an alternative school in Kitaakita.

This facility itself is named the Aikawa School Children Study Center (合川学童研修センター; Aikawa Gakudō Kenshū Sentā), out of which the Academy operates.


The Refresh Academy is an alternative school established to rehabilitate students from elementary schools and junior high schools across the country who find it difficult to maintain daily school attendance. The Academy provides a safe space for students to maintain a regulated schedule. Attendance at the Refresh Academy is counted towards attendance at a student's home institution.
The Academy is equipped to allow students to commute daily, or to stay overnight. Meals and other facilities are provided.

It is located in Aikawa next to Suiun Park. Originally it was jointly operated by Kitaakita City and Akita Prefecture; currently it is operated solely by the city.

Brightly, purely, robustly
Strengthen your bonds with friends
