WLSA Fudan Academy
Founded in 2012, The WLSA Fudan Academy’s mission is to develop young men and women to become leaders of character and major contributors to their local, national, and international communities.
The WLSA Academy seeks to inspire its students to pursue their individual passions through internationally-recognized and innovative academics and co-curricular programs.
The WLSA Fudan Academy utilises the WLSA Curriculum that was created to utilise the best of western and eastern pedagogy to create culturally sensitive, internationally minded students.
WLSA/XZY International Teaching Program (ITP)
In 2013 WLSA joined hands with the highly-reputed XinZhuYuan Middle School. The WLSA/XZY International Teaching Program (ITP) currently, in 2018-19 has a total of around 165 students. It is a co-curricular, bilingual program for grades 6, 7, 8 and 9. In G6 and G7 55% of the classes are taught in English, including Science, English and Public Speaking, while in G8 and G9 it is around 75% - 80% in English.
Class size is limited to maximum 25, in order for each student to be given enough 1-to-1 attention, as well as being given enough opportunity to develop appropriate fluency levels in English. There are 8 forty-minute classes every day, as well as 2 hours of self-study 4 evenings a week for boarders.
The, interactive, Western style of teaching, alongside the compulsory subjects taught in Chinese ensures that WLSA/XZY students become effective, critical thinkers, in preparation for their studies in the WLSA Fudan Academy in Shanghai, or indeed at other institutions either inside or outside China. In the school year 2018-19, there are 35 WLSA/XZY G9 graduates in grades 10 and 11 at the WLSA Fudan Academy.
