Overseas Short-Term Study Abroad Programs

ISA, including its five overseas subsidiaries and educational organizations, works with schools and companies in the Western world and Asia to provide schools and individuals with short-term overseas study programs tailored towards the interests, level of challenge and potential of each teenager. The programs are designed to maximize learning outcomes not only during the study abroad period, but also before and after, and emphasize experiences that will lead to the children's future development, while taking care to ensure a safe environment and transportation overseas.

Intensive English Training Programs in Japan

These programs are designed to foster an understanding of diversity, self-understanding, collaboration, reflection, leadership, and presentation, which are necessary elements for global learning. The programs are held in an all-English, multicultural environment with ISA's foreign instructors and international students. The programs emphasize communication in English while working to ensure that students learn the importance of these skills and how to put them into practice. In addition, the curriculum and textbooks are all ISA originals, providing practical global learning in Japan. These programs attract approximately 70,000 elementary, junior high, high school, and university students from all over Japan each year.

Long-term Study Abroad Programs

We provide support for study abroad programs, targeted towards high school students, ranging from one semester to full high school study abroad programs leading to graduation from a local school. Studying abroad during high school is a rare opportunity to spend time at a local school with other students of the same generation. There are two types of study abroad programs: exchange programs that allow students to live a "normal high school life" and deepen their international understanding through direct contact with the local society and culture, and privately funded programs that allow students to choose the country, period of study, time of admission, and type of stay according to their individual needs and aptitudes. We also provide information, career guidance, and application support to junior and senior high school students who wish to enter universities overseas, helping them to realize their dreams.

School Education Innovation Support Program

In today's society, which is facing major turning points such as the fourth industrial revolution, climate change, and social inequality, there is a worldwide shift away from industrialized education based on a standardized curriculum. In Japan, a new curriculum has been introduced based on a new view of academic achievement, and trial and error is being conducted at various sites. Under these circumstances, ISA provides comprehensive support for essential issues at school sites and offers more valuable global learning opportunities by utilizing ISA's domestic and international resources with a focus on global education and English education.
