Three Guineas Academy is an education innovation start-up that meets the demand of a new generation of Chinese students planning on studying abroad in the U.S. We are committed to delivering high quality educational programming to China’s best students. We value integrity and holistic growth for every single person. Three Guineas Academy cultivates young leaders who can function comfortably in American educational settings and move with ease within diverse cultures, with the ability to express themselves, take initiative, and take up social responsibility.


我们的名字

The Story Behind Our Name

“Three Guineas” comes from a Virginia Woolf novel of the same name, in which Woolf responds to several letters, one of which requests a donation of three guineas to help rebuild a women’s college. Woolf's response is a persuasive and eloquent argument in favor of the education of women and their entry into the workplace. We at Three Guineas Academy seek to embody the idea that women’s empowerment is crucial to creating a better world for all genders and that the education and professionalization of women (and men) is an important component of this mission. Thus, we strive to be educators who not only impart knowledge, but encourage students to develop their own ideas and goals as well as give them the tools to make their dreams into reality.




我们的价值

Our Values

自信

Confidence

Vision guides us towards the future. It contains our dreams and principles. A global vision is key to China’s emerging leaders, who must have expansive horizons and the breadth of understanding to excel in our diverse world. Three Guineas Academy is founded upon a global vision, with founders who have lived in different cultures. We build a bridge between Chinese students and the global stage, instilling in them an awareness of what goes on in faraway places and nurturing a respect for difference across race, class, gender, sexuality, and nationalities. Our students will be better prepared to study and work in all types of contexts, as they become culturally competent leaders. Three Guineas Academy encourages everyone to venture further and to dream bigger.

主动性

Initiative

Initiative means starting before anyone else has told you to do so; it means seizing every opportunity without hesitation. Three Guineas encourages its students to be curious and ambitious in their endeavors and to weave such an attitude into their every goal. We also give them spaces in which to use their initiative to further develop and explore their different interests.

成就

Achievement

Achievement is the self-motivated pursuit of excellence. It is the willingness to continuously challenge yourself. We believe in doing the best we can in everything, and we are committed to becoming the best educational enterprise in our field, with the highest standard of service possible. Three Guineas Academy motivates students to push harder and unlock their full potential. We expect to see real growth in everyone, according to their own values and strengths. We deliver both short-term achievement in admissions results and long-term personal development.

Our Pedagogical Deliberations

合作式学习环境

A Social Justice and Feminist Platform

Three Guineas’ Boot Camp gathers small groups of 5-10 talented students in weekly classes that stress mutual support and group-based learning. We believe that the best learning happens in environments where smart people can work with one another. In these dynamic spaces, individual students can not only work on their own personal development but share ideas and advice with one another, simultaneously working on their communication skills and English fluency. This group-based model of learning also relies on the student to take the initiative in discussion and analysis. Rather than relying on the traditional teacher-student model, Three Guineas’ students develop an awareness of their own selves, in addition to developing the confidence and mutual trust to express their emotions and opinions.
