Knowledge of Chinese Language

Knowledge of the Chinese language is not required to enroll at HCCS.  Due to our rigorous immersion program, it would be very difficult for many students above 1st grade to successfully thrive academically if they have little to no Chinese language experience. While we will not turn anyone away who is interested in enrolling their child in HCCS, we highly discourage it for the student’s academic benefits.  We will conduct an informal assessment of a child’s Chinese language proficiency and meet individually with the parents of any student 1st grade of higher seeking to enroll for the first time.

Students enrolling for the first time in grades 2nd and above who have knowledge of the Chinese language at a level approximating that of their classmates will reap the full benefits of our immersion program.

Application

Please fill out and submit the 2017-18 Application. All applications must be submitted by the last work day in February at 4PM.  Applications received after this deadline will not be included in the lottery the first week of March. Applications after this time will automatically go to the bottom of the waitlist.
