Keystone Academy is an innovative and unique school in China and the world. It draws from Chinese, American and global learning traditions and weaves them into a powerful bilingual education model. It is truly one-of-its kind in China. The curriculum is bilingual in the primary years with more intensive instruction in English through middle and high schools. We focus on inquiry-based learning, critical thinking, and creative problem solving in a rigorous intellectual environment. This prepares Keystone students for the challenges of the modern integrated world. Keystone's academic program is global in scope with a strong and intentional central Chinese focus on national identity, language, culture, and history. Our school is from foundation year through grade 12.
Our school includes a boarding program, optional in grades seven and eight, and mandatory in grades 9-12. Through our residential program, our students will develop the values, close relationships and independence that are essential for positive leadership and success. Western educational approaches in a Chinese context enable a model of true cultural fusion and global understanding. The majority of our students will be Chinese, but we will also have a healthy representation of other nationalities.
Our sprawling campus is in Shunyi, Beijing, which includes a state-of-the-art music room, theatre, indoor gymnasium, science labs and other facilities.
