Interested in participating in a Cultural Exchange Program without leaving the country? 


High School Diplomats is a ten-day program at Princeton University for American students to interact and forge friendships with Japanese students.


The program is sponsored each summer by the AIU Insurance Co. of Tokyo, along with the Freeman Foundation. During the stay each American student is paired with a Japanese roommate.


Cultural Exchange


The High School Diplomats program is devoted to bringing students from both American and Japanese cultures the most informative and engaging cultural exchange possible.

In addition to the daily activities, both groups of students attend daily language classes ranging from beginner to advanced and taught by native speakers.

Every student is also given the opportunity to present a unique part of their culture. Topics assigned each year vary and often include history, leisure, social issues, and education.

The HSD academic curricula provides the students with small, seminar-style language and culture learning opportunities.

Attention Freshmen and Sophomores


The United States Air Force Academy is a more challenging and competitive environment than a typical college or university. The Academy offers a top-ranked education and a world of opportunity to those applicants who can meet our admissions requirements.

While you are still too young to apply to the Academy, it is never too early to start preparing. As a matter of fact, the earlier you start, the better your potential to be accepted. There are four things we look for in a future Academy cadet:

  • Academics
  • Athletics
  • Leadership
  • Character

So how do you prepare for a future at the Academy?

  • Study hard. Get the best grades you can in all subjects — especially English, math and science.
  • Join a sports team. If your school does not have an after-school sports program, you can usually find one at your local community park or recreation center.
  • Become a leader. Join a scouting program like Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts or Civil Air Patrol. Or join another school or local club and go for a leadership position like club president or secretary.
  • Demonstrate character. Consider activities that help others. Get involved with church groups or other organizations that may be helping members of your community.

These activities will help you demonstrate your academic performance, athletic potential, leadership and character traits. Starting early and being prepared are your best shots for earning an appointment to the Academy. We hope to see you in a few years!
