Executive Head of School's Letter
As of August, 2019, I am honoured to be the Executive Head of the newly created Maple Leaf International Academy – Shenzhen (MLIA – SZ). I bring to the role 19 years of experience as an Educational Leader and Head of Crofton House School in Vancouver, Canada. Crofton House is one of the top university preparatory schools in Canada where graduates have gained entrance into some of the most prestigious colleges and universities around the world for more than 120 years.
The goal of MLIA – SZ is to become such a school in China by providing the very best and brightest students, both national and international, a program that will prepare them well for entrance to these same universities. Students at MLIA – SZ will not only have the opportunity to earn their BC high school diploma, they will also be given the opportunity to pursue their areas of interest through electives, AP course offerings, and a Capstone project.
This is an ambitious program that will appeal to very capable, committed, and dedicated students who have a dream of attending world-class universities. The Maple Lead model of preparing a western academic orientation with the richness of Chinese educational traditions and cultures will prepare our graduates to become the leaders our world needs.
