About Chinese Academy
Chinese Academy is a through-train school (Grade 1 to Grade 12), jointly established by Confucius Hall of Hong Kong and the International Chinese Academy Education Foundation (ICAEF).  Sharing the same beliefs with Confucius Hall, which has a history of 80 years, the ICAEF is a visionary organisation aimed at promoting the integration of traditional Chinese culture and global perspectives so as to nurture talents and better the future of humanity.  Chinese Academy is the first major milestone of ICAEF’s vision of an elite, through-train system that integrates the best of Chinese and western traditions from primary to secondary education, preparing students for top universities around the world.

Having been established in Hong Kong for 80 years, Confucius Hall has been carrying the mission of propagating the Chinese culture and Confucianism. Over the past years, the Hall was honored to have had famous Chinese cultural and Confucian scholars, such as Lu Xun, Mou Zongsan, Lo Hsiang-lin, So Man-jock, Jao Tsung-I, Ch'ien Mu and Tang Junyi, to host speeches. Stepping into the 21st century, Confucius Hall has strong determination, in collaboration with the ICAEF, to offer modern premium education embedded with rich Chinese culture.

The Chinese Academy Team
The Board of Directors and Advisory Team of ICAEF are led by a professional, international team comprised of educators and researchers from elite education institutions, while the School Management Committee has substantial experience in management with promising education vision and aspirations. Together, the Foundation and the School shoulder the mission to promote quality education, and cultural inheritance and exchange.  The focus of the ICAEF’s vision is a balanced education model combining Chinese philosophy with Confucianism as the core values and global perspectives, integrating the best traditions of the East and the West. The Foundation aims to propagate Chinese culture, and nurture global citizens and future pillars of society with a grand vision. 

Naming Chinese Academy
The Chinese name of the School and the Foundation, Jìn Dé (晉德), represents the Foundation’s dedication and commitment to providing the best education.  The Chinese word “Jìn” (晉) is one of the 64 archetypes from the ancient Chinese classics Yìjīng (易經).  With the connotation of “progress”, “Jìn” symbolizes students excelling through intelligence, wisdom and talents.  The word “Dé” (德), literally meaning “virtues”, is rooted from Yìjīng’s “The virtuous bear duties onerous”, which conveys the idea that people who are virtuous, broad-minded and knowledgeable are trusted with enormous responsibilities. 

“Jìn” and “Dé” are our aspirations for our students, the remarkable young leaders of the future.
