Life as an Exchange Student

There are two kinds of exchange programs at Sapporo Sacred Heart School. A three-week program and a one-year program.

Three-week program:
Students come from our sister schools from around the world such as New Zealand, Australia, the United States, France, and Taiwan. They stay with a host family and experience Japanese school life.

One-year program:
Students join our school for one year and immerse themselves in the student life of Sapporo Sacred Heart School. For this program, students can be from any school and they don’t have to be from a sister school. They participate in the exchange program through AFS.
