Did you know that UWC ISAK Japan students can take no less than four Arts courses as part of their IB diploma? Visual Arts, Music, Film, and our newest program—Theatre—are a key part of campus life. Not only as our most colorful academic programs, many of our student-led clubs share a similar focus. Both academic and extracurricular programs regularly collaborate with Karuizawa's famous community of artists and world-class facilities.

The mission of the Outdoor Education program at UWC ISAK Japan is to develop students’ ability to embrace discomfort in the pursuit of personal growth through a localized education that fosters responsibility and respect for each other and the environment.
