Minnesota Chinese Schools

There are two main "weekend" Chinese schools in the Minnesota Twin Cities area that run classes for both adults and children. Both of them are located in Saint Paul, MN. Please send me any additional school links via contact form. There are also tutors available. Send me links if you find some that I don't have listed.

MCA Minnesota China Academy

This school is currently based within the MacCalaster College campus. They operate two schools (see main web site). I am currently enrolled in their Saturday morning adult classes. Each class is about 50 minutes long. If you are in one of these classes, and want access to class recordings, send me an email, or use the contact form.

I don't have any experience with these. The last time I checked, however, the group seemed to be inactive.
