The NIS Summer Program provides students with a dynamic environment that helps them learn and have fun. The program does this by incorporating activities that challenge the student through five main areas - Creative, Cognitive, Collaborate, Cultural, and Cardiovascular. We believe that a truly engaging summer program is built around these areas of focus. Activities for students vary weekly, but will include arts, crafts, team games, IT exploration, cooking, science experiments, and more!
Please note that the NIS Summer Program is NOT intended to be a learning program to enhance academic English skills. The language of instruction for the NIS Summer Program is English and students are expected to be able to communicate and participate fully in English. Students are expected to use the common language of English at all times while on the NIS campus, and may be asked to withdraw from the program (or denied enrollment) if it is deemed that the English level of the student does not qualify for full participation.
Admission to the NIS Summer Program is open to students age 4-12 (entering Preschool 4 through grade 5/6), and must fall under one of the three admissions categories below:
- Students who are currently studying full-time in an international school (or school outside of Japan) which uses an English-based school curriculum AND who are not enrolled in the Japanese school system;
- Japanese returnee students (returned within the last two years; students must submit grade reports or transcripts of former school(s) attended) who previously studied in an English-language curriculum while outside of Japan;
- Students who are non-Japanese or multi-cultural (i.e. one or both parents have a non-Japanese passport and a native language that is not Japanese) and who have sufficient English language skills to participate.
Participants for all sessions must submit a completed application form. Sessions 1 & 2 are open to NIS students and students from categories (1), (2) and (3).
