Our Model

At ICIA, we understand that every child is unique. Our Mandarin immersion program ensures that students are well-prepared and confident in both traditional and simplified Chinese, setting them on a path to success in today's globalized world. Join us in nurturing not just bilingual, but truly bicultural learners who appreciate the depth and beauty of traditional Chinese. 

Our instruction in this model is heavily immersed in the Chinese language, comprising 70-90% of the curriculum in grades TK-2nd. We ensure the success of every student, regardless of their prior experience with the Chinese language, by implementing effective language learning strategies, providing active academic support, and fostering social-emotional growth.

As students' progress to grades 3 through 5, our immersion model continues to prioritize Chinese instruction, accounting for 60-80% of the curriculum.
