The West Valley Chinese Academy (WVCA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the teaching of Chinese language and culture.  Located in Woodland Hills, CA, our school provides a wide range of regular classes tailored to the needs of students from kindergarteners to high school seniors. We teach Pinyin and Simplified Chinese. WVCA differentiates itself from other language schools by

  • Small class size
  • Experienced teachers
  • Beginner to AP Preparation classes
  • Dedicated volunteers
  • 13 years of proven success

We also offer a “Mommy and Me” class for toddlers aged 3 to 5 featuring basic Chinese words and simple conversation, story telling, Chinese folk songs, etc. The highly interactive class has become very popular since it was introduced in Fall 2014.

New Mommy and Me class

Beginning the 2014-15 School Year, we will offer a Mommy and Me class for children of age 3 to 5. The class time will be Sundays 10am to 11am. We require at least one parent to join the class with the child.
The class will focus on basic Chinese words and simple conversation, story telling, Chinese songs singing, and possible Chinese poem citing, etc.
