Little America offers several special classes for high-level elementary and junior high school students to elevate their English skills to give them an academic advantage. The Academic Class Goal is to give Japanese students an advantage over public schools, juku and regular English school programs by studying, doing and experiencing activities and lessons American elementary and junior high school students encounter in their respective schools. Success in the Academic Class should be a stepping-stone to successful international experiences in Japan, trips abroad and a higher chance of admission to international schools in Japan and abroad.
- Students already enrolled at Little America: Must currently be a Denver (advanced) or Rocky Mt. (honors) student and receive a recommendation by their teacher.
- Non-Little America students need to take a short English test and have an interview with Helene Uchida.
Teacher: Helene J. Uchida (A substitute teacher will be arranged when Mrs. Uchida conducts seminars or is out of the country.)
