The primary mission of the St. Louis Modern Chinese School is to provide a nurturing avenue for students of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to learn Chinese language and share Chinese culture.


The St. Louis Modern Chinese School was founded in 1997 as a family-oriented non-profit Chinese language school dedicated to teaching Chinese as a second language. The primary mission of the St. Louis Modern Chinese School is to provide a nurturing avenue for students of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to learn Chinese language and share Chinese culture. SLMCS is an active member of Chinese School Association in the United States (CSAUS) with some 150 member schools and more than 20,000 enrolled students.


Started with 40 students in 1997, the St. Louis Modern Chinese School currently has over 400 students enrolled, making it one of the largest Chinese language schools in the United States. SLMCS is operated by volunteers and its financial support is mainly from tuitions and donations from individuals and private business and institutions. The school opens from 1:30pm-5:00pm on Sunday. The first two hours are devoted for language learning followed by cultural activities including Chinese arts and sports. Special classes are offered for children and adults of non-Chinese descent to learn Chinese as a second language. We strive to continue making SLMCS the place for students to learn Chinese language and culture, respect, and responsibility.
