Q. Are there any other Japanese students in the program?
Since it’s a well-known summer camp in the U.S., many local students are the participants. There can be a few Japanese students, but the majority of the classmates will be local students, and students from other countries are also expected to attend; English speaking environment is guaranteed. Since there are international students, teachers are all accustomed to taking care of them.
*One class consists of 1-15 students. 70% are locals, and 30% are internationals.
*This ratio can differ depending on the registered particular course
Q. Staying in a dorm
It depends on the camp, but 10~12 years or over (normally 12) are allowed to stay in the Stanford dorms. Students who are 18 years old are required to submit forms for background checks. Each room in the dorm usually has 1-3 students in it, and the shower rooms and bathrooms are shared. We will arrange host families or hotels when necessary.
