School Immersion Programs

Japanese students are given the opportunity to experience the daily life as a student in the US.

Choose your area of focus:
science, math, agriculture, arts, music, and so many more
Choose your length of stay:
one day, one week, one month or somewhere in between
Choose your location:
City life on the east coast or rural mid-west? We have schools all over the United States

How does it work?
Japanese students typically stay with a host family and are matched with a US “buddy.” They attend daily classes, field trips, and after
school activities with their “buddy.” ESL class for the Japanese student can also be arranged. Depending on the goals of the student, GPI US can arrange for half day or full day site visits to local colleges, workshops, lectures, and tours.

Why?
Both Japanese and American students are given the opportunity to learn a different culture and foster new relationships from across the globe. They are pushed outside their comfort zones and forced to broaden their communication skills.

Academic Placement Programs

We help place Japanese middle and high school students in US public and private schools for a semester, full academic year, or longer.

How does it work?
Japanese students let us know their area of focus, location, and length of stay and we match them with the perfect school.

Why?
The benefits of studying abroad are almost endless.  It opens a world of opportunity and forces young learners to step out of their comfort zone and learn skills that will help them be successful in every part of their life from career to home.
