About

For over 16 years SWAN (Shuang Wen Academy Network) has served the City of New York by creating one of its largest most academically enriching After-School programs. The mission of SWAN is to develop proficiency in Mandarin Chinese language and awareness of Chinese culture in individuals, preparing them as global citizens in an increasingly competitive and demanding international environment.

Through early learning, innovative teaching, technologies and partnerships, SWAN seeks to develop these students from varied social, economic and ethnic backgrounds, and to share its best practices for replication purposes.

Furthermore, SWAN provides Elementary and Middle School Chinese Learning in Summer, an enriching cultural and academic learning experience that gives children beyond access to affordable Chinese language immersion, culture, physical activities and fun.

At SWAN, we’re thinking locally and globally, working with Title I public school P.S. 184M to ensure youth from all social backgrounds in New York’s community have access to exemplary After-School care that provides them with global skills and proficiency in Mandarin.

Mission

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 culture, 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.
