Dual-language immersion boarding school opens in Beijing
Keystone Academy is an innovative and unique school in China and the world. It draws from Chinese, American and International learning traditions and weaves them into a powerful bilingual education model. It is truly one-of-its kind in China. The curriculum is bilingual in the primary years with more intensive instruction in English through middle and high schools. We focus on inquiry-based learning, critical thinking, and creative problem solving in a rigorous intellectual environment. This prepares Keystone students for the challenges of the modern integrated world. Keystone’s academic program is international in scope with a strong and intentional central Chinese focus on national identity, language, culture, and history. Our school is from foundation year through grade 12.
Our school includes a boarding program, optional in grades seven and eight, and mandatory in grades 9-12. Through our residential program, our students will develop the values, close relationships and independence that are essential for positive leadership and success. Western educational approaches in a Chinese context enable a model of true cultural fusion and international understanding. The majority of our students will be Chinese, but we will also have a healthy representation of other nationalities.
