Changzhou Global Academy

Changzhou, China

ESA is partnering with Wonder by Design and Three W International to create a new, state-of-the-art private school campus in Changzhou, China. The global academy will educate students from kindergarten to 12th grade, preparing them for the world’s top universities. The campus features multiple buildings, including academic classrooms, dining facilities, an athletic and wellness center, a visual and performing arts building, the institute for inquiry, creativity and innovation, the institute for teaching and learning, and faculty and student residences.

The 1.5 million square feet of indoor space is situated on a 34-acre site, serving more than 3,000 students. This pilot project will be used as a prototype for academies across China. ESA and Wonder by Design are in the early stages of planning a second campus for Three W.
