High School Students: College in the Schools (CIS)

We encourage highly motivated high school students from our College in the Schools (CIS) program and other Chinese immersion programs in the greater Twin Cities area to attend the University of Minnesota and apply for Chinese Flagship program.

Chinese Flagship has a direct relationship with high schools in the Twin Cities area through College in the Schools. Currently, we deliver our university curriculum through five Chinese College in the Schools programs at Irondale High School, Blake School, Highland Park Senior High School, Rosemount High School, and South High School. Typically, the College in the Schools program delivers one year of Chinese instruction over a two-year period; this way, incoming freshmen may begin in second-year Chinese and progress quickly.

Immersion Schools: Partnerships

Chinese Flagship keeps an informal partnership with the ten Chinese immersion programs in the greater Twin Cities area: two total-immersion schools and eight strand programs in non-immersion schools. Working through the Confucius Institute, we have been actively recruiting students from those immersion programs.
