The Institute of Chinese Culture (ICC) was incorporated in Texas in 1970 as a non-profit educational institution. Our mission is to enhance the appreciation of the Chinese language and culture through our Chinese-language school and a variety of community activities throughout the year. Check our social media sites for updates on activities if you want to get involved!
The Institute of Chinese Culture (ICC) is Houston’s first Chinese language school. We primarily offer Chinese classes in either traditional (with Zhuyin) or simplified (with Pinyin) formats. The curriculum covers ages from preschool (three and a half years old) through 12th grade. All courses are designed to teach students listening, speaking, reading, and writing comprehension skills. The 6th through 12th-grade curriculum is further enhanced with a culture-class program to supplement lessons with Chinese cultural activities.
Additional classes, including mathematics, art, English writing, piano, and business entrepreneurship taught through Junior Achievement, are also available. These classes are available 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 and take place in the afternoon. For adults, we also offer courses such as Chinese, French, Tai-Chi, and art.
Starting from summer 2019, we have established the ICC preschool program (http://iccschooltx.org/) which provides an immersion language learning environment for toddlers (2-3years old), preschool (4 years old) and kindergarten (5 years old) students.
