Summer Experience 2017

Sorry, we have closed the application for 2017.

Have a great summer!

Explore! Discover! Experience! Weeks of fun and learning

Join our learning adventures that offer opportunities for students to explore their interests. Follow your passions or be a risk-taker and try something new. Our activities are in line with Canadian Academy’s philosophy and practices, with a touch of summer fun!

All programs are designed for both CA students and non-CA students. We have enrolled students from Niger, Canada, China, France, India, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United States, and all over Japan.

Students must be at least 4 years old by September 30, 2017. Pre-K students will be limited to those who are currently attending Canadian Academy or new students starting KA at Canadian Academy from fall, 2017.

Elementary Summer Experience is taught in English. Students applying for programs other than ‘Summer Fun @ CA’ should have enough English to follow instructions.


CA Summer Experience for Secondary School Students

We are sorry to announce that due to a lack of demand from Secondary School students in previous years, CA has decided to suspend the CA Summer Experience for Grades 6-11 students for the summer of 2017. There are other international summer school options available in the Kansai region. Please use the email address below if interested in learning more.

Those Secondary Students who are interested in volunteering to assist with Elementary School students during the CA Summer Experience may email to apply for a position.
