Sessions II & III: Middle School & High School Students
These sessions, for grades 6 - 8 and grades 9 - 12, will run for four weeks, Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. from July 1st through July 25th. There is no class on Thursday, July 4th, but instead, class will be held on the next Friday, July 12th. Students in this session will have 16 face-to-face instructional hours per week, and an additional two hours per week through a distance-learning format. In addition to the Chinese language component, the course will also include several hands-on workshops conducted by native Chinese on topics such as dance, watercolor and calligraphy. Students who meet the age and GPA eligibility criteria and who successfully complete the course are able to receive four college (semester) credits in Chinese language. Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria for college credit can apply for high school credit. Cost: $50 for high school credit*; $227 for college credit. Scholarships available.
*Please note that the ultimate decision to award high school credit lies with your high school; we cannot guarantee you will receive high school credit. Nevertheless, we recommend that students choose this option if they are planning to apply for high school credit because it provides a transcript that students can present to their high school.
An application for the middle school and high school sessions consists of:
- A completed APPLICATION form.
- A completed TEACHER RECOMMENDATION form.
- A completed GUIDANCE COUNSELOR form.
- High school students: send a current transcript from your school; middle school students: send a copy of your report card.
