Gakko Camps: Kohai Application (High School)
Apply here to become one of the 210 amazing high school students carefully selected to attend Gakko’s mind-expanding, life-changing summer camp in Japan or the USA.
Please note that the Gakko application process is hosted on a third-party service that makes it easy for you to edit and save your work over a period of days/weeks before you submit your final application. But, sooner is better; we prioritize interviewing early applicants. Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. Round I (early applications) close March 19th. Round II closes April 20th.
To apply for a specific camp in the US or Japan (or all camp programs) you must:
Click on the "Apply" box to the right and open the written application;
Note your preference(s) for camp locations and dates within the written application and submit. (Here is where you may also indicate that you will need tuition assistance. Should you apply for need-based tuition assistance, will receive a subsequent email with special directions for the scholarship application);
If your written application meets our criteria, you will be asked (via email) to schedule a Skype or phone interview;
If you apply before March 19th, final admissions decisions (and tuition assistance awards) are announced before April 15th. Round II Applicants will hear before May 1st.
Because the Gakko experience is rooted in collaboration, creativity, and intellectual curiosity, we hope this application is a chance to demonstrate these attributes. Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at email@example.com. We are humbled by your interest in our program and look forward to learning more about you.
