The Boca Raton Chinese School, an affiliate of CCASF, was established in 1985. It currently provides Chinese language education to over 100 children ages 4-18 every Saturday morning during the regular school year at Olympic Heights High School in Boca Raton. It also offers adult conversional class to non-Chinese speakers, Tai Chi Chuan and dance classes when the Saturday language school is in session.
In addition, the school is associated with a Dance Theater, providing a rich repertoire of Chinese folk and lion dancers, who perform regularly in the traditional Chinese festival celebrations and multi-cultural events, as well as community services to area seniors in retirement homes.
Like CCASF, the Chinese School is run by a group of volunteers dedicated to the promotion and understanding of Chinese culture and heritage.
