For Japanese idols to manage their career well, it's hard on their studies and many have to forgot further studies. Many Johnny Entertainment artists only finished high school but it appears that the younger generation would work on both and would like to go onto college dispelling the image that artists do not like to study.
The school 日本堀越學園 Horikoshi High School/ Horikoshi Gakuen is the breeding ground for many idols. They only require interviews and some documents and the attendance requirements are very slack. The idols who could not receive normal high school education would prefer going to this school.
