We are here to help every student who walks through our door!
First-class team of teachers
We are concerned about students’ academic progress but we also consider the development and cultivation of their personality. Small class teaching will ensure each student receive adequate attention in class. Teachers and the school will provide the biggest support to achieve a common goal - to nurture our students and elevate their potential.
Strict management system
We believe personality is established by outstanding achievement. YIA’s strict management and one to one counseling will help students to discover growth in personality. YIA has high admission percentage for the top universities in the world, including Stanford and University of Toronto.
A wide range of student interactive activities
We believe talented individuals working together will achieve better outcome. YIA has partnered with many well-known secondary schools to plan extra curricular programs together. Through the partnerships we will organize activities as a whole, which allows students from different schools to interact and work together to exchange their talents.
YIA organizes social practices to not only allow the students to engage in social, cultural conventions and cognitive development, but also to help improve students' independence and sense of responsibility. Every year, our students will participate in all aspects of volunteering work, university campus tours, and internships. These social practices will help guide the students to their future goals and career.
In recent years, 96+% of our graduates have been admitted to universities.
