Beijing World Youth Academy

Beijing World Youth Academy was founded in 2001, starting with a small core of students studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Since that time, the school has developed a strong reputation for offering high-quality programs for local and overseas students. BWYA values holistic education and inquiry-based learning, and provides students the opportunity to develop as internationally minded critical thinkers. BWYA now has three campuses and classes for students aged 5 to 18. A large percentage of our graduates have been accepted to leading world universities and the school prides itself on providing a personalized environment for learning. BWYA has a favorable faculty to students' ratio, and a curriculum that emphasizes creativity and teamwork, incorporating standards from North America, Europe and Asia. We endeavor to create a friendly community environment that also stresses maturity, service and personal accountability.
