About Our School

The Sarasota Chinese Academy was born after a visit to Huaxia Chinese School in White Plain, NY in 2002. Jinbo Yin, who later founded The Sarasota Chinese Academy, was deeply moved by the students’ enjoyment, teachers’ dedication and curriculum the school offered. Jinbo’s dream was to provide a similar learning environment for his two daughters and all children in the Sarasota-Bradenton area who wanted to learn about Chinese language and culture. After years of hard work and dedication from many people, the Sarasota Chinese Academy finally opened to the public in the Fall of 2006. Read More
