About Us

Yinghua Academy is the only full immersion Mandarin Chinese K-8 school in Minneapolis. It opened in 2006 as the first public charter Chinese immersion school in the U.S. and the first Chinese immersion school in the Midwest. Yinghua continues to be a national leader, offering an international perspective and outstanding results.


The mission of Yinghua Academy is to prepare our students to be engaged and productive global citizens by providing a research-based educational program that includes a rigorous academic program, immersion in Chinese language and culture, and a nurturing and supportive school environment.
