A Life-Changing Experience!

UWC ISAK Japan’s Summer School is an exciting opportunity for middle school students from around the world to live and learn together on our beautiful campus in Karuizawa, Japan.

Summer School brings together bright, curious, motivated young people (ages 12-14) from a diverse range of countries, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds for what many students say is a “life-changing experience.”

Students become more globally-minded as they develop the skills and confidence needed to become change-makers who can make a positive impact for the greater good.
