CSA strives to provide the best in quality of customized education in Chinese. Our teachers and staffs are highly trained and have extensive professional experience. Our teaching focuses on the quality of learning and the interest of each individual student to learn. In Chinese language education, CSA adapts the Chinese Pin Yin (Han Yu Pin Yin) phonetic system and simplified Chinese characters writing system. Language classes range from kindergarten to 12th grade. CSA also offers Chinese culture programs that include Chinese dancing, drawing, paper crafts, chess, Tai Chi, Chinese music, and Chinese history. In addition, through self-organized programs and clubs on various topics, CSA offers a warm social environment for participating families to get together to have fun, to learn, and to share.

CSA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in hiring school teachers and staffs, administration of its educational policies and CSA programs. CSA enrolls students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all rights privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

With continuous support from national and local businesses, governments, and our community leaders, specifically, our hosting school, The Pike School, CSA is looking forward to developing more solid, community-oriented, cross-culture education and exchange programs that will benefit every quarter of our more than ever culture-diversified society.
