About

The Evergreen Chinese Academy

The Evergreen Chinese Academy was established in 2005 by Drs. Douglas and Belinda Louie.  Dr. Douglas Louie received his medical degree and his doctorate in Psychology from the University of Washington. He is practicing medicine fulltime while serving as the founding pastor of the Chinese Christian Church of Tacoma. Dr. Belinda Louie obtained her doctorate in Education from the University of Washington. Currently she is a full professor at the Education Program at UW Tacoma.  The Evergreen Chinese Academy has received provisional status to offer foreign language credits through the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. The academy is also a member of the Chinese School Association in the United States.

The mission of the Evergreen Chinese Academy is to teach Chinese language, customs and culture in a nourishing environment to develop and enhance students’ Chinese proficiency and prepare them to meet the challenges of an intensely competitive global society.  In addition, the Academy aims at promoting cross-cultural understanding, cultivating appreciation of Chinese heritage and culture through language classes as well as participation in local community events and activities. We strongly believe that a dynamic and relevant curriculum, delivered with innovative instructional strategies grounded in language acquisition research, will provide a strong framework for language learning to occur.

Our curriculum is based on Standards for Chinese Language Learning developed by the Chinese Language Association of Secondary-Elementary Schools (CLASS).  Our approach is appropriate for children and adults in the United States, interactive and engaging. Teachers use instructional strategies that are derived from current research in Chinese language teaching and learning, aiming at mastery and fluency. In addition to age-appropriate textbooks, our instructional materials include children’s literature, DVDs, online activities, CDs, movies, and games.

The academy is housed in a church building with over 10,000 sq ft. We have well-equipped classrooms, computer lab, library for students, professional library for instructors, kitchen (we offer free, homemade breakfast), music room, taichi room, and a newly constructed outdoor playground.
