The Chinese Academy of Cleveland was established in 1973 and it was the first Chinese school in the greater Cleveland Ohio area. Our school is registered with the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC) and it’s a nonprofit organization in the U.S.A. Our school has nine board members and the positions of Principal, Vice Principal, Academic Affairs Director and Treasurer to promote Chinese culture with Taiwanese characteristics and Mandarin learning.
Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning is established under our school’s structure. The Center is operated under the supervision of the school board. Our school’s existing faculty support the Center’s administrative manpower. The Vice Principal of our school Jasmine Rocco is the Center’s person in charge and the Principal Liao Kung-ching is the contact person. Other administrative manpower will be provided by the Academy’s existing staff. At the beginning, the center’s classes will be taught by our school’s adult class experienced teachers- Lin Hui-Ling and Jasmin Rocco.
克里夫蘭中文書院 (Chinese Academy of Cleveland）成立於1973年，是美國俄亥俄州大克里夫蘭區最早成立的中文學校。本校係僑委會立案之僑民學校，屬美國非營利組織。本校組織有董事會成員九人，並設有校長、副校長、教務主任與財務主任等職，以傳揚中華文化與傳授華語文為宗旨。
Our school has established the “Taiwan Center for Mandarin Learning” with support from the OCAC. We are equipped with facilities and processes, well qualified staff and ample instruction contents to promote traditional Mandarin for overseas compatriots and people from the local community. Based on what our school has accumulated in years teaching experience locally, we hope our school will become the best place for promoting Taiwanese culture and language in Ohio U.S.A.
