Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA) holds a non-discriminatory admissions policy for both the expatriate and local communities. We seek to offer equal educational opportunities for those who are qualified and competent to meet the demands of our programmes. A qualified candidate is one who is able to prove the ability to achieve success in the school’s international programmes in English or Chinese university preparatory programme.

The transfer of students will not be accepted after two weeks from the start of the new school year. If a student comes back from abroad, he/she needs to submit transcripts and a letter of recommendation. The headmistress will eventually decide if he/she can be accepted.

BWYA provides English instruction education regardless of the programme. At BWYA students learn an international curriculum in English; we are not an English conversation school. Parents are to note that transferring between Chinese and International school curricula means broad changes in instructional and learning styles, curricular delivery, assessment styles and engagement of students and parents. It may be the case that returning to Chinese educational institutions, after extended time in international schools, may result in a difference of knowledge and skills. With your child, please strongly consider the implications of these changes, as well as your child’s intended educational goals when you consider changing schools. Whenever transitioning between schools, parents are reminded to complete the government required registration procedures.

In accordance with Chinese government mandates, BWYA includes Chinese language, Chinese History, and Moral education utilizing government provided textbooks from grades 1 to 9. BWYA is proud of its commitment to mother tongue and bilingual learning offerings.

In order to help both students and parents become successful at BWYA, prior to the beginning of class, each new student and parent will be guided through the induction process for their grade. Both students and parents are expected to continue their understanding of BWYA procedures through school provided seminars and information released on our Managebac administrative service.

Students enrolling in BWYA will be placed in grades appropriate to their ages as of September 1st, and previous education experience. Based on aptitude tests and assessments, students in the secondary school are assigned ability-based levels for some courses. This leveling of students is modified according to success criteria at specific times during the year.

Students who wish to enroll at BWYA should contact admissions@ibwya.net for more information. Waiting lists for enrollment are available for both admission testing and placement.

The school can only offer places to students with mild learning difficulties. Where possible, any difficulties that are known must be declared so that individual needs can be assessed and support can be determined and arranged.

If neither parent resides in Beijing, a legally appointed guardian must reside with the student in Beijing, and a guardianship contract in the Chinese language should be signed and notarized. The school can assist in obtaining a residence permit for those who require a student visa.
