*All group gathering events have been cancelled ( including Open Houses) due to current health situation until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.



Northwest Chinese Academy staff and families encourage prospective families to visit and learn more about NWCA. NWCA has a few different options for visiting our school and experiencing NWCA.


Private Tours:

Scheduling a private tour of Northwest Chinese Academy during school hours is the best way to understand what your child’s educational experience would be like. Tours are led by our Head of School or our Marketing and Admissions Assistant and last approximately one hour. RSVP


Fall Open Houses:

During the school year, NWCA schedules monthly open houses on the second Friday of the month from 9:00 am to 11:00 am unless otherwise stated. Open houses are another great opportunity to learn more about NWCA and see Portland’s most intensive Mandarin Immersion program in action as well as meet NWCA staff and current families. RSVP

  • Cancelled: Thur., April 9, 2020: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm ( PS/PK ROUNDUP)


Northwest Chinese Academy playdates are a great opportunity to visit our campus and learn about our school in a more casual setting. Playdates happen quarterly during the school year, and the dates for the 2019-2020 school year are scheduled to be: 

  • Sat., March 7, 2020: 10 am - 1 pm

At NWCA playdates, all current and prospective families are encouraged to bring their children to NWCA for a morning of discovery and play. There will be scheduled activities that allow children to make new friends and learn Chinese language and culture. Prospective NWCA parents will be able to chat with current NWCA parents, teachers, and staff to learn more about our school.RSVP
