HISTORY

Having been established in Hong Kong for 80 years, Confucius Hall has been carrying the mission of propagating 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 extended its vision, in collaboration with the ICAEF, to offer modern, high quality, internationally-focused education embedded with rich Chinese culture.

CHINESE ACADEMY

Chinese Academy is developing a Primary School (from years 1-6 ), established by Confucius Hall of Hong Kong. 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 equip young people to fulfil their individual potential in a warm and caring environment. Chinese Academy is the first major milestone of ICAEF’s vision of a unique, through-train system that integrates the best of Chinese and Western traditions from primary to secondary education, preparing students for their chosen career paths at top universities around the world.

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, promising education vision and aspirations. Together, the Foundation and the School shoulder the mission to promote quality education, cultural inheritance and exchange.

Chinese Academy, Our Name

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.

CAMPUS AND FACILITIES

The school is situated in the prime and historic location of Confucius Hall on Caroline Hill Road, Causeway Bay. Since 1935, the Confucius Hall of Hong Kong has been revered for its historical role in Hong Kong’s cultural development as a base for scholars promoting Chinese culture. The new campus of Chinese Academy organically fuses Chinese and Western design concepts, which resonates with the architectural heritage style of the Chinese Siheyuan and the Western monastic style of Oxbridge.
