Hangzhou CIS is a unique residential programme for Year 10 students.


In August 2013, CIS launched a one-year academic and residential programme of the highest calibre in Hangzhou, China.

This is the first programme of its kind.

Hangzhou CIS invites students in Year 10/Grade 9 (14-15 years old) to spend a year immersed in Chinese culture and language, while continuing their education in English within the framework of the internationally recognised IB Middle Years Programme (IBMYP).

Hangzhou CIS is located on the campus of our partner school, Greentown Yuhua School (GYS), a leading private school in Zhejiang Province. Sharing a campus with Chinese peers provides Hangzhou CIS students with a range of opportunities for exchange and friendship.

Hangzhou CIS has been crafted to be an intensive year-long journey of discovery. The program is built on the four pillars of China, Challenge, Character and Communities.
