Chinese Cultural and Educational Association

Chinese Language School


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. 


School closure

Like many of you, we have been carefully following news about the development of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).   After thoughtful discussion with our staff and teachers, we have decided to suspend all our classes and close our school immediately (March 14) until  and including April 11. Your teacher will contact you directly to let you know how they will teach their class during this period. We will be in touch before April 18 as facts change and we reevaluate whether we will resume classes. 

First day of school for 2019~2020 school year is 9/7. Registration opens on the same day. Click the "Registration" button on the left to download the forms.
