Want to be an exchange student?

Each year the City of Fairfield sends six students and a chaperone to Nirasaki, Japan, for a three-week student exchange during the month of July. During the visit, the students live in the homes of host families and participate in a wide variety of activities sponsored by our Sister City.

Students have the opportunity to visit schools in Japan, tour historical and cultural sites, and experience the culture and lifestyle of a Japanese family. Students who have entered 9th grade as of fall 2019 are eligible to apply.

For complete details and an application form, visit our website. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 24, 2020.
