Welcome to Secondary​

OCAC Suzhou Secondary division began in August 2018 with 138 students & 23 faculty and is now in its second year with 385 students & 53 faculty, a growth of 179%! The Diploma Programme has been fully authorized by the IB, while the MYP is in the “candidate phase” of authorization and working toward full authorization in the fall of 2020. 

In Grades 6-9, we follow the Chinese National Curriculum within the MYP approach to teaching and learning.  The Grade 10 programme is an in-house designed hybrid curriculum, and Grades 11 and 12 follow the IB Diploma Programme.  Pastoral care is an important feature of student life in the Secondary school, and to promote well-being and a balanced lifestyle, we offer an after-school Enrichment programme led by students, teachers, and outside providers, as well as a full athletics programme.  

We will continue to reflect on our programme and plan for improvements and opportunities for our students to thrive and succeed in their educational journey both here in Suzhou and beyond.
