The Kalamazoo Chinese Academy has
started the 2019-20 school year! We have nearly 70 students enrolled, with the
ratio of 1:1 of Chinese Heritage to Non-Heritage families. This year, we have
changed our school time from Friday nights to Sunday afternoons to be
considerate of families with young children. We partner with the Confucius
Institute at WMU and the WMU’s Master of Arts in Teaching Chinese as a Second
Language program, who provide professionally-trained instructors as KCA
teachers. There are also more class choices for both parents and students, such
as adult Chinese language classes, Chinese painting classes, and Chinese folk
dance classes. The student clubs expanded from just one, Chinese Yo-Yo, to two
with the addition of Go Club. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment for
all Chinese learners, regardless of their cultural, racial, or ethnic
