Chinzei Gakuin High School was originally founded in 1881 as Cobleigh Seminary or Kaburi Eiwa Gakko. It was established as a missionary project of the Methodist Church, at Higashi-yamate, Nagasaki. The school was then renamed Chinzei Gakkan in 1889, and then as Chinzei Gakuin in 1906. Later, in 1930, the school relocated to Urakami in the same city, but was severely damaged by the atomic bomb. After that, the school was reconstructed in Isahaya, about 20 km to the north-east of Urakami, in 1947.
Today, the institution consists of three schools: Nagasaki Wesleyan University, Chinzei Gakuin High School, and Chinzei Gakuin Kindergarten.
