NP:J is a three-phase program built around a summer study trip to Japan. In the preparation phase, students work with their teacher to investigate one of several Japanese cultural themes, using custom-designed curriculum materials. During the two-week guided study tour, students have opportunities for home stays, school visits, and customized "study days," The third phase, after students return home, again features curriculum units to help students understand and and reflect on their experiences. Teachers who recruit five or more students for the program participate at no cost. The program cost per student is $2,950. Some financial aid is available.
