Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA) 北京世青国际学校

Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA) is a Beijing international school for students of all nationalities aged 5 to 18, offering programmes taught in English with extensive language support where required. An IB World School since opening our doors in 2001, we are fully authorized to offer both the IB Diploma (DP) and IB Middle Years (MYP) Programmes. We also operate the innovative IN Programme for students who require additional language support, and in 2016 we incorporated the IGCSE. Our younger learners follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

We value holistic, inquiry-based education and seek to create globally aware critical thinkers with a passion for their own community and culture. We are proud to be authorized by the Beijing Municipal Education Commission to enroll both local and foreign students, and over 25 nationalities are represented in our student body. This balance is reflected in our motto — locally grounded, globally aware — which lies at the heart of the work we do.
