Leadership Insights

Lin Kobayashi

Co-Founder and Chair of the Board

The 2022-23 school year has indeed been unforgettable, for it brought into focus areas for growth both for myself as a leader and for our organization as a whole. There's a path ahead that calls for continued work and refinement. But the year has also been deeply moving, as our students and parents never wavered in their belief in our school. Amid challenges, the honesty and commitment of my colleagues, dedicated to our mission and the well-being of our school, have been truly inspiring. Remembering the saying, "If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together," it's my sincere wish that we, as a united front, journey towards our objectives. I extend my heartfelt thanks for the enduring support and trust placed in us over the years.

Mamoru Taniya

Representative Founder and Deputy Chair of the Board

This past year brought a major change as we bid farewell to our long-time principal, Rod, and welcomed Malcolm in his place. The shift was initially met with uncertainty. Despite this, we've experienced an even better year at UWC ISAK than we anticipated. This success is due to everyone's dedication, including our new deputy principals, Kyle and Michelle, our faculty, staff, students, Founders, and Catalyst supporters, all guided by our capable Chair of the Board and Principal. The graduation ceremony in May was particularly touching. Watching the student who hosted the ceremony tearfully send off the graduates truly showcased UWC ISAK as one big family. I felt immense gratitude for having the chance to build such a school alongside all of our supporters. In the coming year, I look forward to working together to make our school even better. Your support is deeply appreciated. Thank you.

Malcolm McKenzie

Head of School

Joining UWC ISAK Japan in mid-October 2022 has turned out to be one of the most delightful surprises of my career. Nevertheless, this has been a complex and challenging year. Leadership transitions are seldom easy, and when they are unexpected this causes extra pressure. That said, we have stayed the course this past year and stayed true to our founding impulses. Our combination of the original ISAK vision and mission with those of the UWC movement is distinctive and powerful. Every day we strive to live our ideals and, when we fall short of these demanding aspirations, we try to find ways of doing things better in future. Our students are remarkable, in their energy, motivations, and goals. Our adults are full of passion and purpose for the place and its values. What a fine, inspiring school and community we have here on the slopes of Mount Asama!

Year in Review


New National Committee Students

For the first time since 2019, we kicked off our school year with all students successfully joining campus on time for the commencement of classes. Notably, our Grade 11 class was the largest in the history of UWC ISAK Japan, with an impressive cohort of 92 students, which helped correct an imbalance caused by the global pandemic. The return of new international students in 2022 was a significant moment for us, reaffirming our commitment to intentional diversity.


UWC Day: Peace Begins With Us

Following an eventful Orientation Week, classes commenced, and our bustling Outdoor Education program began with thrilling hikes, including ascents of Mount Asama and Mount Fuji. On September 21, we commemorated UWC Day under the theme “Peace begins with us.” Engaging in workshops and role-playing activities focused on peace, environmental crises, gender relationships, and more, students, faculty, and staff took a moment to reflect on our school’s mission and explore solutions to global challenges.


Fall Project Week

Fall Project Week was a vibrant and action-packed experience. It marked the first foray for our Grade 10 students into the redesigned UWC ISAK Japan Leadership program. Additionally, we experienced a change in school leadership, as Rod Jemison transitioned to an advisory role for the 2022-23 school year, and Malcolm McKenzie assumed his position as the Interim Head of School, embarking on a two-year mandate at UWC ISAK Japan.


Ainu Cultural Activities and Workshops

Extracurricular activities flourished with 24-hour Theatre, a beloved tradition that challenges students to create a play in a day. Recently, in a first for UWC ISAK Japan, we hosted Ainu community members Kenji, Maki, and Maya Sekine, in partnership with SEKAI Education. This marked our inaugural collaboration with a Japanese indigenous culture, with our Ainu guests leading enriching workshops on diversity and intercultural understanding. This pioneering step deepens our connection to Japan’s history and sets the stage for future collaborations with indigenous communities. Read more here.


Human Rights Day and Winter Break Work

On December 10, in harmony with celebrations worldwide, we observed Human Rights Day at UWC schools, reaffirming our commitment to peace and human dignity, inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Afterward, students enjoyed their Winter Break from December 17 to January 8. Some remained on campus, participating in our successful holiday work program, which allowed them to work at local establishments, ski stations, and educational facilities. This experience not only honed their Japanese language skills but also fostered a sense of responsibility and independence.


Embracing Local Opportunities

As students returned to a snow-covered campus after Winter Break, they delighted in the winter wonders of Karuizawa, engaging in activities such as skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, and snowshoeing. Additionally, we strengthened our ties with local schools, hosting a visit from students in Karuizawa, reaffirming our commitment to cross-cultural exchanges, despite previous disruptions caused by the pandemic.


International Day 2023

UWC ISAK Japan International Day returned with a unique cultural event exclusive to our school, warmly open to the local community. Students dazzled with cultural performances, dances, and songs, while each country/region represented at UWC ISAK showcased its rich heritage at cultural booths, complete with information and local food prepared by students.


Spring Project Week

Spring 2023 Project Week was a transformative experience, allowing our students to refine their leadership skills by addressing critical issues and taking impactful action. The collaboration between Grade 10 and 11 students during this week was unprecedented, culminating in a compelling presentation to the entire student body and faculty. The remarkable projects spanned across Japan, Bangladesh, and India, leaving a lasting impact and highlighting the success of the Grade 10 Leadership Project redesign. More details can be found on our blog.


Celebrating Diversity Through Cultural Events

April saw an abundance of cultural events, such as the Chinese Culture and Language Day, French picnic, and Latin American Culture Week. Our Muslim students and faculty celebrated Ramadan by visiting the Tokyo Camii Mosque, where everyone was invited to try fasting for a period or the entire duration of Ramadan. Additionally, Danish and Maryam, two students, orchestrated a Q&A session about Islam and a secret survey to encourage open dialogue and understanding within our diverse community. Read more about this on our blog.


Graduation Day 2023

On May 21, we bid farewell to the Class of 2023 with a heartwarming Graduation Ceremony. This class faced significant challenges when some of their peers had to transfer to other UWC schools in the winter of 2022 due to pandemic related border restrictions in Japan. Despite this, the adversity brought them together, making their small Grade 12 class of 39 graduates one of the most united in our school’s history. 

Short Programs

Students get a taste of UWC ISAK Japan and our experience is often a different way of education. Our main program is the Summer School, which first started in 2011, but we also run a Winter School program (since 2020). In total, 208 students had the opportunity to engage with us through our Short Programs in 2022-23 and we are constantly exploring new horizons to expand access to UWC ISAK Japan education!

Summer School

For 13-14 years old students

Since 2011, Summer School has pioneered the UWC ISAK Japan approach to education. Over 13 days in late July, we welcomed 82 students from around the world to our campus in Karuizawa to explore leadership, culture, identity and more in a diverse environment. This year we had 28 nationalities represented and a team of 30 adults guide students through a life-changing experience. Summer School 2023 was rated with a 96% satisfaction level.


For 14-16 years old students

ISAKx was launched in 2020 in response to the pandemic that saw access to education constrained around the world. ISAKx operates exclusively online and seeks to bring the UWC ISAK Japan approach to education to those who couldn't otherwise attend our programs physically in Japan. This year we offered seven courses over the span of two semesters. The 2022-23 program enjoyed a 100% satisfaction rate from students.

Winter School

For 12-13 years old students

Winter School is our Short Program that was born during the pandemic but has now gained a secure place in our yearly offerings. During Winter School 48 students were able to experience the beauty of our snowy campus, extensive Outdoor Education and classes around leadership, diversity and taking action. Winter School 2022 received a 91% satisfaction level from the students.

Financial Summary

At UWC ISAK Japan, we encourage our students to be catalysts for positive change in an increasingly complex world. Diversity in the student community is an essential part of the student experience, their training, and individual growth. Our environment is intentionally diverse, so that all live and learn with others who represent a vast array of backgrounds and perspectives (socioeconomic, religious, cultural and more). Difference is a powerful teacher.

This truly diverse community is made possible through our robust need-based financial assistance program, which provides 70% of our students with monetary support. A significant portion of our scholarships (about 60% in 2022-2023) is generously funded by the Furusato Nozei (hometown tax) program, which sees 95% of donations go to UWC ISAK Japan scholarships and 5% towards improving education in Karuizawa. We are sincerely grateful for this trust and these contributions from all our donors and supporters.

UWC ISAK provides about 500,000,000 yen in scholarship funding, approximately one third of our annual expenditure. Other funds and support are provided directly in smaller but still significant amounts, the most significant of these being the Dare to Dream program, funded by American philanthropist and long-time friend of UWC, Shelby Davis and his family.

* Our students receive financial assistance fully or partially from Furusato Nozei and other sources.

Strategic Plan

In early November of this past year, we started a process of strategic planning in the UWC ISAK Japan Board and Council meeting. This involved staff, faculty, students, and parents, as well. At that point, the thought was to develop a Strategic Plan for a three-year period from the start of next school year, 2023/2024, to take us through to the end of the school year 2025/2026. The leading idea behind a 3-year plan, in contrast to the more usual 5-year span, was to set up something that would run for only the first two years of the tenure of a new long-term Head of School, giving her time to take a leading role in the drafting of the next Strategic Plan. However, when Arden Tyoschin was appointed and it became apparent that Arden was able to spend a large part of this year on our campus, it made sense to revert to a 5-year model, which we will finalize with Arden’s direct involvement and input by May/June 2024.

The current draft has seven aims or topic areas. These are:

  • First Aim – Re-envisioning our Mission and Vision
  • Second Aim – Student Experience and Student Growth
  • Third Aim – Academic Learning and Teaching 
  • Fourth Aim – Admissions and Alumni
  • Fifth Aim – Governance
  • Sixth Aim – Financial Sustainability and Institutional Advancement
  • Seventh Aim – Facilities and Grounds

Advisory & Safeguarding Report

Throughout the past year, our whole community was engaged in looking closely at our safe guarding and care giving protocols and practices. Many areas had been identified that we felt needed attention. Two consultants were employed: Laura Earwood, who had worked at UWC ISAK for a number of years, helped hugely with safeguarding issues; and Libby Mason, recently retired from the Pearson College UWC in Canada, helped us with the further development of our advisory program. Laura visited for a week in February, and both delivered detailed and valuable reports. New positions were created for all this: Michelle Rutter fills the Deputy Head role, in charge of Pastoral Care; Christina Bonnell is our first Director of Student Welfare; and Alastair Wanklyn is Advisory Coordinator.


  1. Diversity and Inclusion 
  2. Communication
  3. Mental Health Support

Action Points: 

  1. Providing cultural competency training, starting intentionally in the August orientation period;
  2. Improving relationships in the advisory program, and developing a more intentional advisory ‘curriculum’;
  3. Implementing regular feedback sessions (e.g. Town Halls);
  4. Developing more comprehensive mental health policies that support students and the mission of the school, e.g. Wellness Days, and many others.

Community Stories

Changemaking with Manaha

In this first part of a series, we dive deep into the leadership projects of Class of 2025 student Manaha from Japan, beginning with her project on Peace, which was inspired by her encounters with atomic bomb survivors and her drive to spread awareness about the untold stories of Hiroshima. Follow her journey from her visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial, her meeting with in-utero A-bomb survivor, Mr. Kosei Mito-san, to her efforts to bring these stories to her peers at UWC ISAK Japan, culminating in a milestone event that contributes to UWC’s mission to educate for peace in the world.

Project TOMO strives to support foreign students in Japan

Sayaka and Midori, two Class of 2025 students from Japan, have embarked on a journey to transform the education experience for foreign students in Japan, inspired by their own struggles with cultural barriers and a desire to bridge the divide. This story chronicles their journey from the spark that ignited Project TOMO – a chance encounter with a young American girl struggling to communicate, to tirelessly connecting with schools, parents, and organizations during the Covid-19 pandemic; ultimately developing and implementing Project TOMO with a mission to offer guidance, support, and resources to needy families, thereby fostering a more inclusive and compassionate world.

Students Discover Richness of Japanese Traditions in Spring Project Week

During the Spring Project Week 2023 at UWC ISAK Japan, Class of 2024 students immersed themselves in various Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) projects involving traditional Japanese handicrafts and craftsmanship, fostering cultural understanding and personal growth through hands-on experiences in Japanese joinery, indigo dyeing, and pottery and ceramics. These activities, which included constructing a wooden bench with a local craftsman, creating indigo-dyed textiles inspired by a trip to Kyoto, and learning pottery styles and participating in a tea ceremony with a renowned ceramic artist, deepened their appreciation for the dedication, skill, and cultural significance of these traditional crafts, ultimately culminating in the creation of a set of ceramics as a gift for the graduating Grade 12 class.

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
