Founded in 1996, Huaxia New York Central Chinese School (HXNYC) is a non-profit Chinese school in Westchester County. The school offers instruction in Mandarin Chinese to children from preschool to Advanced Placement Chinese on Sunday mornings. The school has been at its current location at Westchester Community College (WCC) since 1999.
The mission of the school is to provide affordable Chinese language learning while fostering a community where members can share their experiences and offer mutual support. In addition to offering a Chinese language curriculum, the school also offers cultural enrichment classes and Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) classes to non-native speakers. Parent clubs are available as well.
HXNYC and WCC have a standing collaborative agreement for the school to promote cross-culture exchanges among local communities and to serve as a Chinese cultural center in Westchester County. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or creed.
