Sacred Heart School announces partnership with Chinese school
Delegation from Zhejiang Fuyang High School visit Kingston to sign contract
A delegation of administrators and teachers from Zhejiang Fuyang School, which is owned by Zhejiang Fuzhong Education Group, recently visited Sacred Heart to tour the Kingston campus and experience a western style classroom first-hand. The visit culminated with the signing of a formal contract of partnership.
As such, a select group of students at Zhejiang Fuyang High School will be able to enroll in a special dual diploma program that allows them to complete Sacred Heart's curriculum while remaining in their home country school. The Chinese students will graduate high school with two certificates – a traditional diploma from Zhejiang High School and one from Sacred Heart.
The program serves as a next generation model for future international student partnerships to allow students in both China and the United States access to a more global perspective of learning.
"This partnership will provide us with an additional resource toward fulfilling our mission to broaden students' awareness of other country's cultures and educational viewpoints,"
