本校の歩み―過去、現在から未来へ

ユナイテッド・ワールド・カレッジISAKジャパンはこれまで、多くの方々のご支援をいただきながら歩みを重ねてきました。10周年記念基金では、皆さまと共に、本校のさらなる発展を目指したいと考えています。また同時に、今後10年、さらにはそれ以降も安定した教育を提供できるよう、財政面を含めた基盤の強化にも取り組んでまいります。

本校の価値観と取り組み

次の10年も社会のために

2014年の創立以来、本校では、さまざまなバックグラウンドを持つ生徒が、異なる文化や価値観を理解し、共生力を身につけ、将来、社会に貢献できるリーダーとなれるよう教育に努めてまいりました。共感、異文化理解、個人の責任感という価値観を大切に、教育のあり方を変革し、コミュニティでの絆を深めた10年となりました。

本校の生徒は長年にわたり、地域社会への奉仕、持続可能な社会実現のための対話や取り組み、社会的公正の推進など、さまざまな活動に積極的に取り組んできました。こうした活動を通じて、本校が地域社会や世界に少しでも良い変化をもたらせるよう、今後も努力を続けてまいります。

Malcolm McKenzie
Head of School (through June 2024)

I am a South African by birth, and a citizen of many countries by inclination and through lived experience! I have enjoyed a thrilling and, I hope, service-focused career in education, teaching at universities and schools on four continents, and leading a number of fine boarding schools. These schools are in Botswana, the USA, the UK, and China. From 2000 to 2007, I was Principal of UWC Atlantic College in Wales. I love the energy of learning institutions, and the capacity that they have to create and sustain communities that are courteous, collegial, and full of character. In these ways, schools can be emblems of hope for our fractured world. I chose to come to UWC ISAK Japan because it is a new and compelling UWC, with certain distinctive and pioneering aspects to its mission. I look forward to helping to take this lovely school to the next phase of its development, to planning a pathway or ways for the next few years, and to getting to know its people, the students and the adults. They are diverse and purposeful, and full of love for and enjoyment of this magical place.

Naoko Hosono
Office of Development

Before joining UWC ISAK, Naoko Hosono worked as a secretary for both a law firm and a consulting firm. During that time, she was involved in establishing overseas offices and launching a fund for Vietnamese companies. Naoko spent seven years living in Vietnam, where she occasionally volunteered at an international school and was deeply impressed by the respectful environment that fostered diversity.

Naoko was drawn to UWC ISAK’s mission and vision, as well as the school’s commitment to diversity and support for students from financially challenging backgrounds. Two years ago, Naoko and her family moved to Karuizawa to raise their children surrounded by beautiful nature. She now looks forward to enjoying hiking and winter sports with her family and their dog.

Arden Tyoshin
Head of School (beginning July 2024)
Rie Okada
Fundraising Manager

Ms. Okada spent her early childhood in Los Angeles, where she naturally learned to accept diversity, including cultural and racial differences. After moving back to Japan during high school, she experienced a shocking cultural gap in society, which often caused her to ponder why people aren’t simply accepted as they are. Ms. Okada hopes for true positive change in the world, and is supporting UWC ISAK Japan while raising two children. She graduated from Keio University and enjoyed an interesting career in finance and PR/marketing before joining UWC ISAK Japan. She is a self-described foodie, chef and golfer.

Olivia Boissel
Communications & Alumni Engagement Manager

After a few years working as a freelance consultant in the publishing industry and as a translator and French teacher, Olivia is excited to put her passion for words and images into practice at UWC ISAK Japan. She grew up mostly in rural South of France and studied in Paris at Sciences Po university where she earned a B.A. and a Masters in Cultural Policy and Management. Her education included two study abroad stints in Japan at Waseda University and at the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. She also enjoyed a six month work assignment in Beijing, China. After she first supported the UWC ISAK Japan Summer School 2021 program as a staff member before joining full-time. She is thrilled to be part of the UWC ISAK Japan community as well as the local community here in beautiful Karuizawa.

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.
