At Shangyi International (SYI), we believe that extracurricular activities are the unsung heroes of an international education. They cultivate creativity, confidence, and critical thinking, better preparing students to flourish in a constantly changing world. Today, 21st century skills and resilience of character cannot be rehearsed, memorized, and tested. They can only be acquired by doing. Extracurriculars provide students with the space to dabble and to explore, discovering interests that become passions, and building on this passion to demonstrate mastery through competitions or projects.
Our vision is to develop confident,responsible and well mannered students who aspire to achieve their full potential.
We will do this by providing a diverse, secured, fun and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal and all achievements are celebrated.
What We Do
SYI hosts extracurricular competitions and programs in more than 42 cities in China. SYI’s team of frequent-flying teachers and event organizers run business case competitions and debate tournaments around China. We host tournaments, provide training and advice to schools just getting started, and run training camps for students looking to improve. We also run project-based programs such as the Horizon Academic Research Program, which allows students to develop an academic research project, mentored by tenured professors and award-winning lecturers at some of the world’s most recognized universities.
