KWYA is an independent, international, day school located in Yunnan province and is part of the Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA) family of schools established in Beijing who started with a small cohort of students studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. BWYA has now grown into four urban campuses and K-12 classes with over 800 students. It has developed a reputation for academic excellence coupled with a strong sense of community.
Kunming World Youth Academy, founded in 2016, is a state sponsored, private school which is part of the Beijing World Youth Academy group of schools, in cooperation with Kunming Foreign Language School in an agreement signed among the Kunming Educational Bureau, Beijing World Youth Academy and the Chenggong District Government. The school educates students with English as the language of instruction, as well as a commitment to the Chinese government education policies for national students. We use an inquiry based education designed to teach students thinking and academic skills to prepare them for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12. The Diploma Programme is a globally recognised pre-university course recognized in 147 countries.
This cooperation with local government and educational institutions is designed to attract both foreign and domestic students seeking an international education. It will provide families with opportunities to explore local culture and become the heart of international education in Yunnan Province. We operate a boarding school to accommodate children from a broader range of provinces and areas within South East Asia.
Our staff is growing and currently has a faculty from the United States, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, and People's Republic of China.
