Austin’s Chinese Immersion School

Welcome to Little Tiger!

Little Tiger is a Chinese immersion school located in central Austin serving children 2 years old through fifth grade. As a full Chinese immersion school, Little Tiger is unique in the Austin-area.

We are committed to providing students with a highly personalized learning experience within a diverse, culturally rich community. Our teaching team’s goal is to deliver a rigorous curriculum that inspires children’s natural love of learning and helps them to become curious, knowledgeable, life-long learners.

As a full Chinese immersion school, we also aim for our students to achieve very high levels of Chinese proficiency, including speaking/listening, reading/writing, and “thinking in Chinese.”

We also strive to create an environment that fosters independence and collaboration as well as creativity, empathy, and resilience. Last, we hope and expect that our students will become responsible citizens and leaders, capable of applying their academic and social skills to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

At Little Tiger, Chinese is not a subject—it is the medium we use for all of our activities, from morning meetings to math lessons to art & music.

Whole Child Approach

Our “Whole Child” approach emphasizes each child’s overall growth, including: cognitive, linguistic, social-emotional, and physical development.

Our goal is to foster a fun, creative, engaging environment where students flourish academically and develop their curiosity through project-based learning.

Interested? We’d love to meet you.
