Discover China Program
The goal of this faculty-led academic program is to immerse students in China’s culture in order to generate an awareness and understanding of the differences and similarities to our own while connecting their day-to-day experiences with what they have learned about the country in the classroom. Students study China’s language, rich history, and its modern day culture and politics. The program begins in Shanghai and then moves to Ningbo where students will spend a weekend in a homestay with students from our sister school, Yuyao high school. Next students will overnight in Hangzhou and then travel to Xi’an en route to Beijing where they will stay for the remainder of the program. Program Highlights include the Yuyuan Gardens, Jade Buddha Temple, Forbidden City, Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Warriors.
