GREAT WALL CHINESE ACADEMY (GWCA) is a Sunday Chinese school and culture center serving across metro Denver of Colorado. We are a § 501 (c) 3 non-profit educational institute based in Highlands Ranch, CO. We are highly academic-centric, students-orientated, and college-preparation focused.
We teach simplified Mandarin Chinese language for all levels including heritage and non-heritage speakers. We welcome students with all culture background and all Chinese proficiency levels. Our language classes are organized from preschool, K-12, to adult classes. In addition, we offer various culture enrichment classes and leadership programs to help build the total wellness of our students and address their common challenges.
Our teachers are well-trained and experienced, and we teach comprehensive Chinese language curriculum that meets the State and National Standards for Chinese Language. For higher level of Chinese classes, we have integrated guidelines of SAT II Chinese and AP Chinese set by College Board into our core content for middle and high school years of learning. We encourage our parents to get involved either through joining parent-student events or by participating in fun parent-engaging activities.
Our mission is to prepare our students to better face tomorrow’s challenges by offering Chinese language lessons, cultural enrichment, and life-long skill training, all in an environment that promotes positivity, encouragement and sense of community.
