The Japanese Experience Challenge (JEC) is a program for students who wish to take a few months or up to a year from their high school career to experience life in Japan. JEC students at Sendai Ikuei get the double advantage of the JEC homeroom where they study JSL and Japanese History with other International students, and the Integration homeroom where they join a normal Japanese class and get to experience what it is like to be a typical student in a Japanese High School. JEC students are supported throughout their stay by the Ikuei International Center's English-speaking staff. International students may join Sendai Ikuei’s JEC program through one of Sendai Ikuei’s schools. The sister school agreement allows for students wishing to come to Japan, to exchange with a Japanese students at Sendai Ikuei. Sendai Ikuei has more than 60 sister schools in 12 countries from around the world.
