2020 Theme: Olympic Minds Change the World

Our Academy has 4 age categories. 4~7, 8~11, 12~14, 15~18. English is the main language of delivery at 3 levels: native, intermediate, and basic. We also have an optional Japanese language and culture stream. The program includes classroom based learning of weekly themes, combined with experiential and hands on learning projects, activities, and outings, Overall, the program is locationally & experientially diverse, and it is designed according to our philosophy of communicative skills building through engagement and problem solving.  Weeks 1, 2, 3, 6, and 7 are held in Tokyo on a day camp basis (Mon-Fri, 09:00~16:30). Weeks 4 and 5 are away weeks to locations outside of the city that are socially, historically, and culturally relevant to the themes of the Academy (during these weeks, accommodations & board are included).

Our summer academy is a full summer of fun, learning, challenge, and discovery. The Academy runs for seven weeks each summer, from mid July through the end of August, and is located at exciting locations in Tokyo, Okutama, and Akiyoshidai in Yamaguchi Prefecture (flights included). Further deepening our collaboration with the UNESCO Chair on Global Education,  2nd Annual International Youth Summit will be held during Week 5 . The 2019 Youth Summit was held on the Akiyoshidai Karst Plateau in Yamaguchi Prefecture. We will be announcing an equally exciting location for the 2020 International Youth Summit in the New Year. Stay tuned! Whether you choose to participate in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or the full 7 weeks of camp, you will experience different places, people, and challenges each week. You may choose any combination of weeks, starting on any Monday and finishing on any Friday. The theme of the Academy is “Olympic Minds Change the World,” and within that, each week has its own unique focus. 

Important Note: We are currently in process of making improvements to the Cross Summer Academy. In 2020, we are planning a unique and even better experience than the 2019 Academy. As a consequence, while we are not planning major change, some of the events, activities, and locations may change accordingly.
