A Life-Changing Experience!
ISAK Summer School is an exciting opportunity for middle school students from around the world to live and learn together at the beautiful ISAK campus in Karuizawa, Japan. Summer School brings together bright, curious, motivated young people from a diverse range of countries, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds for what many students say is a “life-changing experience.”
“I learned that my life and the impact I have is composed of the choices I make, and that I have the power to make a difference in this world.” -Estella, Singapore
ISAK Summer School focuses on leadership, mindfulness and design innovation, enabling students to become aware of themselves and others, to identify and solve problems individually and with a team, and to gain the inner strength necessary to overcome various real-world challenges. Students become more globally-minded as they develop the skills and confidence needed to become change-makers who can make a positive impact for the greater good.
