Short-term Study Abroad
Special Experiences Abroad
Studying Abroad from a Young Age
Students are studying abroad at increasingly younger ages. Even if it's only for a short period of time, the experience of living away from their parents and being in an environment that is very different from Japan helps children to grow strong and resilient.
From a young age they will develop diverse perspectives and values that will be required in the future. It will also provide an opportunity to become aware of the purpose of learning English and learning about other cultures.
Although a year abroad is required (*) for first year students at CGK Middle school, since there is a possibility they may struggle with homesickness, we recommend that students become accustomed to studying abroad on their own for a short period beforehand.

Countries and Types of Programs
Study abroad programs in New Zealand and the United Kingdom are available. In the future we may introduce other countries.
Choose between short-term and long-term (one-year) programs (CGK Middle school students only), depending on the maturity and circumstances of your child.
Study Abroad Costs
While parents are responsible for the cost of studying abroad, since we use an affiliated company, the price will be lower than usual.
