Bishop Luers High School will be hosting twenty Fushiki High School student for five days from March 15-21, 2013. Our official relationship with this Takaoka, Japan area school has entered its 3rd decade. Bishop Luers is one of only four Fort Wayne schools to have a student exchange program with a sister high school in Takaoka. As a part of this cultural exchange sponsored by Fort Wayne Sister Cities International, some of our Luers students and teachers have traveled to Japan in the past 28 years. A group of the Japanese students and their teacher-chaperones visit BLHS every other year.

During the time of Fushiki High School students and teachers will stay with host families from Bishop Luers High School and they attend classes at Luers during the day. Fushiki students will have some planned group activities such as meeting the Mayor during the school day and a Bishop Luers all-school assembly.
