Dual diploma for High School Graduates
We partnered with the University of Missouri and Centric Learning in the United States. This allows our students to simultaneously earn an accredited US high school diploma and secondary school credentials in Japan. The dual diploma program ensures that graduates are equipped with a proficient understanding and command of the English language through our comprehensive curriculum accredited by the US Department of Education.
We offer two distinct pathways to obtain a dual diploma through WAIS
Our first pathway allows you to stay enrolled at the school you are currently attending in Japan. We provide evening courses for you to attend accredited live lessons instructed by certified educators. Once you complete the required amount of credits to graduate from the US program, as well as your Japanese school, you will receive your dual diploma.
Our second pathway allows you to enroll & attend a corresponding high school in Japan partnered with WAIS, while simultaneously attending courses offered by WAIS. At WAIS, we offer a “Special Course” for students enrolled in partnered high schools. This “Special Course” allows students to earn a dual diploma in Japan and the U.S. through a mutual credit system. For information on partner high schools, please contact us.
*All high schools in the U.S. allow students to study online, while Japanese high schools require students to attend school for a certain number of days as stipulated by law.

Students who enroll in our traditional or alternative course without enrolling in their local school will receive the transcripts issued by WAIS. These transcripts will be recognized as the attendance of the local school, in accordance with their rules. Most local elementary and middle schools recognize these transcripts as the accomplishment of your studies and grant graduation diplomas in the final year. Please inquire at your local school about these details.
