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.

中華文化學院創建於1970年,是休士頓地區第一所中文學校。本校主要的課程是中文教學, 包含傳統正體(及注音)和簡體(含拼音)教材。學生年齡從學前班(三歲半起)直到高中的12年級。教學內容是以加強學生聽說讀寫的能力為主。另外我們還為6至12年級添加了中華文化課程,以啟發孩子們對中華文化的認識。


此外本校特地為家長們開設成人中文,法文,太極拳,和創意美術等課程。從2019年夏季開始我們更設立了中華文化學院幼兒園(http://iccschooltx.org/) 提供兩歲到五歲幼兒的雙語教育。

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.
