Seasonal, Ongoing, and Customizable Programs

Our Summer Academy is by far the most diverse and intense program we offer.

Ongoing school programs are also located at appropriate class and studio locations in the city. Seasonal and Adventure camps (Spring & Winter) are delivered in unique locations around Japan and the world.

Study Options for Kids, Youth, Teens, and Young Adults

Our Summer Academy and Seasonal Camps are open to all ages from 6 years to 25. Those from 6 to 17 years old are enrolled as students, and those 18 years and older participate in the integrated leadership skills program. Our Ongoing and Workshop program series cater to specific learning objectives and age levels.

English Language Program Delivery

English is the main language of all Cross programs: the Summer Academy and the Winter, Spring, and Adventure Camps. Our teachers are as much professionals in their fields as they are professionals in communication skills building.

World Class Education Programs

Our school, academy, and camp, programs emphasize learning in fundamental skills for kids, youth, and young adults. What they learn, they then apply in fascinating locations using exciting tools and technologies, guided by inspirational teachers and mentors.
