Welcome to SCCCA/Irvine Chinese School, the largest Chinese school in Southern California. Founded in Irvine in 1976, ICS has a long tradition of excellence and is a leader in its field.

For over 40 years, ICS has helped thousands of children and their families to learn and preserve Chinese language and culture. From an enrollment of less than 40 students in 1976, ICS now enrolls over 1200 students in Kindergarten through 12 grades in its heritage language school program.

The permanent campus which has more than 44,000 sq. ft. of space was made possible by many donors and volunteers. It also serves as South Coast Chinese Cultural Center. The facility contains various size classrooms, Chinese library, multi-purpose room, dance studio and multi-functional gymnasium. The Center offers many different programs, such as community program, afterschool program, and sports club.

At SCCCA/ICS, we strive to offer a rich variety of meaningful learning experiences that will inspire and help students to achieve their learning goals. Ultimately we empower students to succeed through language in a globalized world and enrich our life with cultural diversity.

We have experienced teachers, dedicated staffs and caring parents. Together, we utilize collaborative approach to make ICS a great inclusive community. If you are interested in Chinese language and culture, no matter you would like to learn Chinese as a heritage language, second language or foreign language, I encourage you to visit our school/center online or on-site. I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Best wishes,
