Keio Academy Programs
GPI US specializes in creating short-term study abroad programs for Japanese high school students. The team at GPI US can provide your son or daughter with a life-changing home-stay experience during their school vacation. Immersive homestay programs are one of the most impactful opportunities we offer for our 200+ students every year. Over the years, we’ve seen the difference an experience like this can make in a student’s ability to communicate with people from around the world.
We believe that through the combination of our caring and dedicated staff, future focused group of experts, and clear vision for how to help our students thrive in a time of great change, we can inspire and empower the next generation. We are grateful for the opportunity to support young people, who inspire us to continually strive to improve our programs and services so that we remain at the forefront of global education.
We are committed to making the perfect, customizable program for your child. Programs can be held in your location of choice - New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, or San Francisco. Students can either commute to a local high school for native english immersion, or be chaperoned by GPI US staff to explore their destination.
Below are some sample itinerary's for possible trips - a homestay and school immersion program in Pennsylvania, a specialty GPI US Empowerment Program in New York City, and a specialty GPI US Global Citizens Program in Boston.
