Strong Academics

Strong Academics Students don't just just learn about Mandarin. They learn in Mandarin.

Fifty years of research on dual language immersion programs show significant advantages for the development of children’s cognitive, academic and language skills.

East Voyager Academy blends the best teaching practices of the West and East. Departmentalized and team teaching structure leads to confident and effective instruction, which enhances students’ learning experiences. Low student-to-teacher ratio provides individualized attention to students’ needs.

English-Chinese Bilingual Proficiency

English-Chinese Bilingual Proficiency Students learn standard curriculum while pursuing academic excellence.

A whole-school Chinese immersion program is the most efficient and effective instructional model for students to achieve dual language proficiency in additional to high level of academic skills and intercultural competence.

Students learn Math, Chinese Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies in Mandarin Chinese. They also take Art, Music, and Physical Education in Mandarin Chinese. Meanwhile, they will still take English Language Arts and gradually increase English instruction time when they move up in grade level.

Intercultural Competence

Intercultural Competence In addition to enhanced cognitive benefits, students gain confidence and pride.

Early interaction with another culture nurtures the core values of curiosity and respect and contributes to children’s deeper understanding and empathy.

East Voyager Academy offers cross-culture related classes and extra curriculum activities to enhance students’ intercultural competence. Chinese culture related school events and international sister school and guest teach program also enriches students’ experiences as future global citizens.
