Early registration will end by 08/27 and registration fee will be waived before that. For students' safety, the fall semester (from September to January/2021) will be taught by Zoom virtual class. We will evaluate the situation by the end of the year and see what's the best option for students. If the pandemic doesn’t get better and there is concern regarding students’ health, we will not take the risk to resume classroom education. We may continue to do zoom class until we are confident that it's safe for students to come to campus for traditional classroom education. 

Be sure to know student’s safety is always our top priority. 

Please visit our school website for registration. d=58&Itemid=242 Notes: 1. Fall Semester will start on Sept 13; 2. No Priority registration for current students for existing classes; 3.

3. 我校蔡陈林老师的团队将承担费城新落成的Crane大楼整体外墙壁画项目, 将美丽留在费城的天际线上; 这个项目是庆祝明年费城中国城150周年活动的一部分。将用壁画来讲述费城华人的 历史和对未来的展望(壁画主题“承前启后”)。项目第一阶段是收集社区和华人 群体对壁画的期望和对历史的记忆。将邀请在费城的华人们来参与这个项目,通过 口述历史和举办针对青少年的网络研讨会来集思广益。完善艺术家对壁画内容的构 思。 此外,光华学校的学生们也能通过参与此项目而增加对中华文化和费城中国城 的文化认同感。也是一个很好的平台来帮助他们来了解费城中国城和华人的历史。 同学们也有机会能体验壁画的创作。
