During each two week stay, participants attend select classes, clubs, and sports in order to fully explore the student experience abroad. Students will stay with the same Keio students who will visit Lawrenceville in February and will attend the Japanese school for two weeks. They will visit local attractions with their host families on the weekends.
This relationship is almost completely funded by Keio School and is offered to our students with reduced expenses related to travel insurance and vaccination/immunization needs only. With only two students able to participate each year, those interested will need to complete the general international program survey, as well as a specific Keio program application
Important Considerations / Student Expectations
Interested students must host their Japanese counterparts during the 2 weeks of winter term from January 28 to February 11, including the long weekend of our "Winter Gathering."
Travel to Japan immediately follows the end of school in June. In consideration of hosting, be sure to discuss this possibility with your Head of House, roommate if you have one, and parents. Selected students must host their Japanese counterparts in their House room (boarders), or home (day students).
This trip is not chaperoned by a Lawrenceville faculty member. Students will travel together from Newark Airport to Tokyo where they will meet the Keio program supervisor and their host families. Students are responsible for getting themselves to Newark on their own and at their own cost. No itinerary deviations are allowed on this program.
