Our Mission


At CAIS, we are committed to inspiring and empowering learners to:

Embrace Chinese
Become our best selves
Contribute to a better world

The CAIS mission is a call to action for all community members—students, staff, parents, alumni families and the Board of Trustees. It reflects both the vision of our school’s pioneering founders and the school’s responsibility to prepare students for the world into which they will graduate. If you take a walk around our school, you will find that our mission is alive everywhere.

Head of School Jeff Bissell announced this updated mission in a message to the entire CAIS community, including families, faculty, and trustees past and present.
