A WAB education extends far beyond classroom walls. Our students are challenged to be global citizens and live meaningful, engaged lives that make a difference. Whether it is during a Roots and Shoots activity, out and about in the neighborhood, a lunchtime meeting, a Chorus rehearsal, or an after-school athletics practice, you’ll find a community of engaged and active learners thriving at the Western Academy of Beijing.

Experience your passions, whatever they may be

You haven't experienced what international school life has to offer until you've experienced WAB.

A community that cares

From student outreach to parent involvement in our Parent Link, WAB is a vibrant international community for all.

Outdoor education

With China studies and WAB Wild, students experience culture and nature in the world outside the classroom.

Top-quality education and opportunities to engage with the world through China Studies programs, APAC programs, and just by meeting people from all over the globe - for both our girls and for us.
