Seoul National University’s Unification Education Research Center is opening a school that will welcome both students and teachers from North and South Korea.

The three-month program, which students attend every other Saturday, begins this week.

Elementary and middle-school students will take ethics, Korean, math, science, arts and physical education classes.

24 students are enrolled in the program ranging from 10 to 14 years old.

The school also will offer mentoring sessions with Seoul National University students.

The purpose of the program is to provide a glimpse life in which the Koreas are unified and prepare for it.
