The Chiway Overseas Chinese Academy incorporates a series of schools catering for children of exceptional talent, the children of overseas Chinese and Chinese students aiming for international education. The schools offer 15-year continual education from kindergarten to high school and identify as international schools with Chinese characteristics. The schools’ curriculum uses the IB framework and meets the requirements of China’s education syllabus, creating through independent R&D a curriculum system that combines both Chinese and western elements, whilst at the same time increasing the proportion of Chinese culture taught in schools.
The establishment of Overseas Chinese Academy of Chiway not only meets parents’ demands for high-quality international education, but also assists the government in recruiting high-end professionals, particularly high-level returning Chinese with an overseas education. It has become a showpiece education model that integrates the very best of China and the West.
