Welcome to The Institute of Chinese Culture
Dear ICC Family,
School Closure Update (3/23/2020)
Adopting some mitigation strategies to slow the pandemic has become our new normal. As of March 23, 2020, 7:47 am, there were 51 COVID-19 confirmed cases in Harris County and 29 confirmed cases in Fort Bend County. Gov. Greg Abbott has recently declared a statewide public health disaster as community spread of the COVID-19 surges.
Given that most of the ICC families are either Harris County or Fort Bend County residents and the expected exponential growth of COVID-19 cases in the community, ICC has decided to close the weekend school until further notice. During the suspension of the school, all school events are canceled including the graduation ceremony. During this period, I would like to encourage our students and teachers to engage in remote learning because this is going to become a new normal for us as outbreaks show no sign of slowing down.
Please forward this email to the parents of your class.
Dr. Ken-Shiung Chen
The Institute of Chinese Culture (ICC) is incorporated in Texas in 1970 and organized as a non-profit institute for educational purposes. Our mission is to enhance an appreciation of Chinese language and culture through the operation of a Chinese-language school and such other means as may be determined by the board from time to time.

The Institute of Chinese Culture (ICC), established in 1970, is Houston’s first Chinese language school. The primary courses offered at ICC are Chinese classes in either traditional (with Zhuyin) or simplified (with Pinyin) format. The curriculum covers ages from preschool (three and a half years old) through 12th grade. Classroom activities include listening, speaking, reading, and writing comprehension. The 6th through 12th grade curriculum is further enhanced with a cultural class program.
Additional classes, such as mathematics, art, English writing, piano, and Junior Achievement, are also available. The goal is to assist students with regular school work, introduce them to Chinese culture and fine arts, and provide leadership skills training. Classes are offered in the fall and spring semesters during the school year. For adults, we also offer courses such as Chinese, French, Tai-Chi, and art.
For adults, we also offer courses such as Chinese, French, Tai-Chi, and art.
