The Chinese Academy is pleased to be continuing our Awards and Scholarships Program. This is only possible through the generous donations of our school sponsors. We want to celebrate the exceptional work and accomplishments of our students.
Our school will be posting the full list of award recipients for the 2020-2021 school year onto our website by the end of June. Congratulations to all our students who have received awards! The certificates for these awards can be picked up at the office in late August/early September.
Grade 12 IB Chinese Scholarships: We also offer a TCA IB Chinese Scholarship to our grade 12 IB graduates. These students can apply for this scholarship upon receiving their IB Chinese report card from the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) in July.

Phase 2 Early Bird Registration
Just a reminder that the $20 discount for Early Bird Registration continues until Wednesday, June 30th, 2021. Please visit this link to register. Also, please take a look at all of the fun Option Classes The Chinese Academy offers as well.
Registering your child(ren) early is a tremendous help to TCA as we plan for ordering teaching and learning materials, hiring teachers, scheduling classes, and setting up classrooms. This process has begun.
2021-2022 School Year Commencement
While The Chinese Academy (TCA) is optimistic that in-person classes will be allowed for the 2021-2022 school year, we are unable to determine potential future restrictions. Please be aware that due to Alberta Health Services (AHS), Alberta Education and Calgary Board of Education (CBE) changing guidelines, TCA may be required to modify programs and classes to a virtual on-line platform. This could occur at any time and post registration.
Please contact The Chinese Academy office via email if you have any questions.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication during this special time. We look forward to seeing all our students on Saturday September 11th for the 2021-2022 school year.
Have a Restful, Healthy and Safe Summer!
