About CVCS

Nestled in the heart of Central Virginia, the Central Virginia Chinese School (CVCS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of its students through Chinese language and culture. Offering both Chinese as a Heritage Language (CHL) and Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) programs, alongside a variety of activity classes, CVCS serves as a vibrant community hub that bridges linguistic and cultural boundaries.

Suburban Street


Central Virginia Chinese School was founded in 1996 by a group of parents who wanted to provide their children with an opportunity to learn Chinese language and culture. Over the years, we have grown into the largest weekend Chinese School in the Greater Richmond area, serving hundreds of students each semester. Our experienced and dedicated faculty are committed to providing the highest quality education to our students.


At the core of CVCS's mission is the promotion of Chinese language proficiency. The CHL program is designed for students with Chinese heritage to connect with their roots and enhance their language skills. The CSL program welcomes learners from all backgrounds who want to explore the Chinese language and culture. Whether you're a heritage speaker or a complete novice, CVCS provides a supportive and inclusive environment for all.
