SWAN's Mission is to develop Mandarin Chinese language proficiency and enhance awareness of Chinese culture in students.
For over 20 years, SWAN has served the City of New York by creating one of its largest most academically enriching Chinese immersion programs.
We believe that students with a wide range of cultural experiences and linguistic abilities are uniquely positioned to assume leadership positions in different contexts. Global citizens in an increasingly competitive and demanding international environment will be charting new courses across a wide range of industries.
Our existing and developing programs provide families with access to Chinese cultural and language experiences. By providing after-school instruction and summer camp experiences, we have and continue to meet the needs of these families. Our new preschool program is a testimony to this commitment. By working locally, we are preparing students to work in global contexts.
