CCEA Chinese Language School in Skokie, IL was founded by a group of Chinese families in northern Chicago in 1968. We teach traditional Chinese characters, and we have language and culture classes for all ages. 



Remote learning continues

Due to the severity of the COVID-19 situation in our community, we have decided to continue our remote instruction for the 2021~2022 school year. Dance and art classes will not resume until students and teachers can safely return for in-person instruction. 


We appreciate your patience during this evolving situation and will keep you informed of any new developments.

Mail-in registrations are accepted from 7/1/2021 to 8/21/2021. In-person registration will be held from 1 to 4 pm, Saturday, 7/31/2021 on the 3rd floor in the school building. First day of school for the 2021~2022 school year is 9/11.
