Welcome to Tzu Chi Academy Boston
Boston Tzu Chi Academy was founded in 1988 as one of the 25 Tzu Chi Academies in the USA. Tzu Chi academies were established as an essential part of Tzu Chi Foundation’s education mission in the Four Missions and Eight Footprints — charity, medicine, education, humanistic culture, disaster relief, bone marrow drive, environmental protection, community volunteerism.
Based on the humanistic cultural spirit of “loving-kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity”, Tzu Chi Academy seeks to awaken the intrinsic conscience and altruistic potential in the children. Through cultivating humanistic arts, we hope to cultivate gratitude, respect and love in the students
Boston Tzu Chi Academy was founded with the mission of implementing the education mission for Tzu Chi. Our principle is to combine a human-centric education and linguistic education to provide comprehensive education. Our curriculum is diverse; beyond Chinese and talent classes, we also incorporate lively Jing Si aphorism and humanistic cultural classes to create a healthy environment for developing the students’ character, language skills, morals and virtues in Chinese culture.
Our team of experienced and excellent Chinese language teachers have years of teaching experience, love and patience. With teaching methodology meant to awaken the students’ altruistic potential, through daily conduct, sing-along, storytelling contests, speech contests, Jing Si aphorism drawing contest and various other activities, we lead the students to a beautiful Chinese learning experience which they can enjoy learning Chinese as well as cherish their intrinsic love and kindness.
The diverse curriculum on humanistic culture includes creative dance, Chinese yo-yo, badminton, chess, cultural arts, tea ceremony and flower arrangement. We hope to enrich every student’s experience and perspective. Apart from helping the students understand their personal interest and potential, we also hope to cultivate their appreciation of artistic and physical abilities.
Jing Si aphorism teaching is centered on the theme of environmental protection and honoring family values.
The curriculum on environmental protection begins from understanding environmental protection, changing personal conduct and understanding that everyone is part of preserving the environment.
Modern classes on family values combine tradition and modern lifestyle to help every student apply the principles they learned into demonstrating gratitude, respect and love in daily life.
Tzu Chi Academy welcomes you with open arms! Let us work together for the next generation.
