About Us

Acton Chinese Language School (ACLS) is a non-profit organization aiming at providing an educational and cultural setting for youngsters and adults alike in Acton and its neighboring towns to learn Chinese language, traditions, and culture.

It is believed that cultivating Chinese culture and heritage into the young and curious minds of American Chinese children will not only help them better understand and appreciate their origins but also arm them with a better view of the world, a more well-rounded personality, and most important, a mind that tolerates and flourishes on differences. 

ACLS also warmly extends its hands to students from non-Chinese families without regard to race, color, religion, gender and national origin. 

ACLS is where the West meets the East: Chinese culture is such an abundant gold mine that it highly deserves exploration by those who are eager to uncover its mysteries and savor its richness.

ACLS is where the Known meets the Unknown: Teachers are encouraged to provide top quality teaching to students, patiently and creatively shepherding them along the adventure of exploring the Chinese language and culture.

ACLS is where strangers become friends: students, teachers, parents, and grandparents are enthusiastically advised to take full advantage of the space, time and activities ACSL is able to provide, to learn, play, and have fun together. 

ACLS is non-political, but it strives for promoting mutual understanding and trust among the Chinese community, and between the Chinese community and Acton residents as a whole.

ACLS is non-religious, but it strives for strengthening family ties, contributing to community services, security, and well-being.

The organization of ACLS consists of the Board of Directors, the School Administration, and the Parents Council. It is a member of the Chinese School Association in U.S.. 

ACLS adopts the Chinese Pinyin phonetic system and both simplified and traditional Chinese characters writing system. 

Classes of Chinese language ranging from entry-level to advanced, as well as classes such as Chinese painting, martial arts, dancing, chess and etc. are offered on each Sunday afternoon starting from 2:00 in Acton's R. J. Grey Junior High School in regular school semesters.

Deep water runs smooth. The success and future of Acton Chinese Language School lie in the supporting and selfless hands of those who have volunteered their time, wisdom, and all other services in various ways.

Special thanks are extended to the Acton-Boxborough Regional School District, the R. J. Grey Junior High, and the Acton Community Education Department for their tremendous understanding and cooperation.
