About Us

language, culture, community

Founded in 1996, Huaxia New York Central Chinese School (HXNYC) is a leading non-profit Chinese school in Westchester County. The school offers instruction in the Chinese language (Mandarin) to children from preschool to Advanced Placement (AP) 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 in a nurturing environment while fostering a community where members can share their experiences and offer mutual support. In addition to offering a Chinese language curriculum spanning Pre-K to AP Chinese, the school also offers cultural enrichment classes and Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) classes to non-native speakers. Parent activities 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. HXNYC welcomes all interested people to join its mission. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or creed.
