Beijing World Youth Academy

About our school:

Beijing World Youth Academy is a Beijing international school for students of all nationalities aged 5 to 18, offering programmes taught in English with extensive language support where required. An IB World School since opening our doors in 2001, we are fully authorized to offer both the IB Diploma (DP) and IB Middle Years (MYP) Programmes. We also operate the EAL Programme for students who require additional language support, and in 2016 we incorporated the IGCSE. Our younger learners follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

We value holistic, inquiry-based education and seek to create globally aware critical thinkers with a passion for their own community and culture. We are proud to be authorized by the Beijing Municipal Education Commission to enrol both local and foreign students, with over 20 nationalities represented in our student body. This balance is reflected in our motto — locally grounded, globally aware — which lies at the heart of the work we do.
