Educational programs for students in kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) are an important component of WMCI's operations in the community. WMCI works with Hanban, BNU and W&M to establish and develop a number of initiatives designed to further Chinese studies for these students, including partnerships with local schools, Chinese culture camp, Confucius Classrooms, and training for teachers of Mandarin both on-site in the United States and in China.
