Greetings from Beijing Collegiate Academy,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and I would to like extend to you a personal invitation to visit our unique “dual language” school. Students at BCA spend 70% of the instructional day with licensed native English-speaking teacher and 30% with a licensed native Chinese-speaking teacher. As a part of our mission and vision, we strive to raise global citizens who are able to move seamlessly between these two cultures.

Beijing Collegiate Academy offers a complete Canadian standard based curriculum as well as the Math, Language and Cultural of the local Beijing curriculum. The focus of both these programs are on critical thinking, problem solving, global mindedness, character building and social responsibility. In addition, we focus on the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child so that they develop as responsible global citizens.

Here at BCA we openly encourage all students to become risk-taking inquirers who are confident to approach unfamiliar situations and to explore new ideas. They will experience the arts, music and culture of China and the global community. In partnership with the family, we will develop young people who are principled; caring; well balanced and reflective. We are training the future global leaders of China and the world.

Again, I would like to invite you to come and visit us at any time.

Sincerely,

Karen Mazurek
Principal
Beijing Collegiate Academy

Canadian Curriculum

BCA has chosen a Canadian Standards based curriculum for its international recognition and its ability to develop the “total child” and prepare them for admittance into the worlds top universities. The Canadian curriculum not only focuses on intellect, it puts a strong emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, data analysis, a global perspective, creativity and social responsibility.
The curriculum exposes our students to western teaching strategies that are common in western universities and college courses. This allows for our students a more successful transition to western schools at any age, including university.
We believe in the Canadian curriculum’s philosophy of student centered learning which acknowledges the differences and uniqueness of each child’s learning method and allows them to reach their full potential.
