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.
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.
