The Hacienda Heights Area Chinese School (HHACS) was established in 1982 by a group of Chinese parents in order to provide Chinese language instruction to their American-born children. Our mission is to provide our students learning opportunities through classroom instruction and cultural events that foster understanding and life-long appreciation of Chinese culture, heritage, and philosophy.
HHACS is a non-profit, non-political, and non-religious, volunteer-operated educational organization. Our School is organized and operated by a Board of Directors, a School Principal and numerous volunteers.
HHACS holds classes every Saturday morning from 8:30am to 12:30pm. Extracurricular classes are offered from 8:30am to 9:20am. Extracurricular classes include Chinese calligraphy, Chinese flute, abacus and mental math, Chinese dancing, and martial arts (Tae Kwon Do). Chinese language classes are offered from 9:30am to 12:30pm, and are separated by achievement levels from preschool through level 10. We also provide a review course to help high school students prepare for the SAT II Chinese test.
HHACS also holds other events and activities, such as parent seminars on child development, college and college financial aid application seminars, Chinese New Year celebrations, teacher & volunteer appreciation lunches, Tai- Chi classes, yearly school carnivals, and in-school art and poetry contests. HHACS is also very involved with the activities of our Regional sponsors: The Southern California Council of Chinese Schools. These activities include composition, writing, poster art, and poetry recital contests. The one activity dearest to our hearts is the Chinese History Bee contest. HHACS teams have consistently placed with honors in the past, and this year our History Bee team won the National Chinese History Bee contest. Way to go, Team!
We welcome all friends and supporters of HHACS and parents to join us at Chinese School on Saturdays from 8:30am to 12:30pm. It’s a great place to meet great people, learn Chinese, and contribute to the community!
