Soochow Academy, one of the pillars of Suzhou High School of Jiangsu, is designed to foster an atmosphere where students can be well-prepared to study overseas. We have been helping Chinese students to achieve their academic dreams since 1927.
The academy grew out of the Program of Western Literature and the English Language, started in 1927 by Wang Maozu, the first principal of Soochow Academy. Many famous scholars such as Lyu Shuxiang and Yang Yinyu devoted themselves to this great academy.
To build an open, competitive, and international education system, Soochow Academy established the Zhuoyue Program in 2013, aiming to build a professional platform for those students who want to pursue higher education overseas. So far, the program has sent many great and talented students to renowned universities all over the world.
In 2017, Soochow Academy fully upgraded the Zhuoyue Program, integrating into the existing curriculum with AP courses (which are acknowledged by top American universities), pre-AP courses, academic English courses (which are based on the American high school system) and counseling services. We have also perfected the student services platform at our school, bringing in professional advisers to help students with their personal assessments and applications, as well as to provide guidance to whoever needs the services. These guidance counselors help students navigate the strict academic requirements of top universities, allowing them to be accepted into their desired programs at top American universities.
Soochow Academy is set up to bring about students who grow to be “life-long learners,” “self-discoverers,” and “open-minded, international citizens.” The program focuses on students’ academic English skills, logical thinking skills, enthusiastic learning attitudes, and efficient learning habits. In essence, we want students to be prepared for the fierce competition ahead, and be able to excel in top overseas
