Mission Statement

Shuang Wen Academy Network (SWAN) helps students from varied social, economic and ethnic backgrounds develop proficiency in Mandarin Chinese, and acquire a greater understanding of Chinese Cultural, so they can become better global citizens in an increasingly competitive and demanding international environment. While providing early language learning opportunities that take full advantage of both traditional and innovative teaching techniques, advanced technologies and strategic partnerships, SWAN seeks to share its best practices and replicate its success.

Description

For over 21 years SWAN has served the City of New York by creating one of its largest most academically enriching Chinese immersion programs. The mission of SWAN is to develop Mandarin Chinese language proficiency and to enhance awareness of Chinese culture in students. We believe that students with a wide range of cultural and linguistic experiences are uniquely positioned to assume leadership positions in different contexts.

Our existing and developing programs provide families with access to Chinese cultural and language experiences. By providing preschool, afterschool and summer camp experience, we are developing the next generation of global citizens!
