Discover our School
CWA, the first truly international school in the Changsha area, opened its doors during the 2010-2011 academic year at its new, state-of-the-art campus.
Changsha WES Academy (CWA) is the first and only international school located in Hunan Province that uses English as the primary language of instruction. In order to attract more foreign investors to Changsha City and Hunan Province at large, the Changsha National Economic and Technical Development Zone Administrative Committee (CETZAC) decided that it was necessary to establish a quality international school for the children of its foreign investors. Thus, CWA was established in cooperation with Worldwide Education Services (WES Group), to provide an international education for the children of expatriate and SAR families.
CWA opened as an Elementary School for children in Grades 1-5 on 1st September 2010 at a temporary site. On 14th February 2011, the school moved to the brand new school campus, which is on a 27,000m2 site at the corner of Dongyi and Beidou roads in Xingsha, an eastern suburb of Changsha City. At the same time, the Early Years section opened for children aged 3-5. Currently, CWA offers classes for children up to Grade 9, and will start a grade 10 in August 2016. As the international community in the Changsha area grows, CWA intends to expand upwards and eventually offer classes through Grade 12.
