Global Class

Our educational goal is to give students the ability to contribute to the local community, as well as skills needed to enter the global society. With the long-standing tradition of language teaching at Sapporo Sacred Heart, our students will be able to use English effectively and gain an understanding of international cultures.

・Students will start 6 years of school life immersed in English. There are 27 hours of lessons a week allocated to the study of all five major subjects. -Joint homeroom teachers, one native Japanese teacher and one native English speaker. -Learning in English immersion classes in which students learn other subjects while using English. -Students develop a sense of their own Japanese identity within a global society.
・Dormitory life: helping the students develop social and communication skills. -All of the first year Global Class students live together in the dormitory for the first three months of Junior High School.
