About Us

“Our approach to education will keep you fascinated in the process of learning and give you critical thinking and leadership skills that will set you apart”

ISAKx is a new online education initiative by UWC ISAK Japan. Our vision is to introduce the “ISAK” method of critical thinking and diverse international classrooms to an audience that isn’t otherwise able to physically experience living and learning at UWC ISAK Japan.
