Blacksburg Chinese School
Blacksburg Chinese School
Blacksburg Chinese School (BCS) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to promote cultural awareness and harmony and to be an active and contributing member of our diverse society. We provided cross-cultural education in Blacksburg and the surrounding community. We offer weekend and after-school Chinese language classes and several different cultural class such as Chinese yo-yo, Chinese dance, and martial art classes. We strive to foster connections with the greater New River Valley community through regular cultural activities and events.
We use the MLP Chinese curriculum for our textbooks and the iChineseReader as after-school reading materials. Right now, we have 6 grades, 9 language teachers, and nearly 90 students. You are welcome to join us!
We have caring and enthusiastic language teachers to provide Chinese classes to two age groups (5-7 & 8-10 years of age). Students have a group session and a one-on-one online meeting with the teacher weekly.
Chinese Culture Programs
Our students have the opportunity to experience many Chinese cultural activities. We have various Chinese culture programs, including Chinese martial arts, Lion Dance, Chinese traditional dance, and Chinese yo-yo.
