    Shining Future is a proponent of project based learning and we believe that

    students learn the best not through rote memorization but rather through

    experiential learning; through exploration; through fun.  


    Each Session has its own themes connecting U.S. and Chinese cultures

    and history.

    China in NYC takes on a unique perspective of being a global citizen. You will
