Akasaka's public elementary and junior high schools are operated by the Minato City Board of Education ([2] in English, [29] in Japanese).

Akasaka High School [3] was operated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Board of Education. It closed down in March 2009. It reopened the next month as the Aoyama campus of Ōta Sakuradai High School [4].

Third Junior & Senior High School of Nihon University was previously in Akasaka, but it moved to Machida in 1976.[30]

The Akasaka Library has moved to a new building in 2007, near the Aoba Park and the Aoyama-itchōme subway station.[31]
