About West Valley Chinese Academy

For more than 18 years, West Valley Chinese Academy has been dedicated to teaching the Chinese language and culture to students age 3 to 18 throughout San Fernando Valley region.

We teach simplified Chinese characters and pinyin. Our students and their families come from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. As the interest of learning Chinese keeps growing in the U.S., we believe our school can further expand its role as a bridge to the Chinese language and culture.

The West Valley Chinese Academy (WVCA) is a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status (ID: 47-0883227) under section 501 C (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
