Welcome to the 2013 Nagoya International School Summer Program!
Thank you for your interest in the 2013 NIS Summer Program. Applications are now being accepted for summer 2013. The goal of the NIS Summer Program is to provide 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.
2013 Session Dates:
- Session 1: June 17-21 *
- Session 2: June 24-28 *
- Session 3: July 29-August 2 ** (DATE CHANGE!)
