Deal with Chinese high school called a milestone for SBA

Posted by wlpo on April 3, 2014

An agreement between Saint Bede Academy and Kinglee High School in China will allow local students to spend a semester in China.  The deal was signed Thursday by St. Bede Superintendent Ted Struck and Wei-Chi Lee, the owner of Kinglee High School.

Struck called it a significant milestone in the history of the academy.  Six students from the Chinese school are already attending St. Bede. The school in China will also adopt some of the Saint Bede curriculum. Eventually this will include classes on religion. Members of St. Bede’s administration will also visit the school.  St. Bede students have been able to study Mandarin Chinese since 2010.
