Dear Guests and Visitors,

It is my privilege to welcome you to Hongwen School Chengdu (HWSCD). At HWSCD, we pride ourselves on the care and attention we give to our students. Only by getting to know them as individuals, can we identify their strengths and weaknesses, allowing our students to reach their full potential.

Our educational philosophy is based on the principles of the Confucius New Internationalised Six Arts. This embodies the idea of a holistic education; helping our students to develop the intellectual, emotional and physical qualities they need to live a useful and fulfilling life. We offer a rigorous and broad academic curriculum covering the traditional subjects, alongside physical education, the expressive arts, business-based courses and Confucius studies. We also offer a full programme of extra-curricular activities, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. HWSCD is a registered centre for ASDAN, and our students regularly participate in activities such as MINI MBA and the Model United Nations, as well as the ARML, Waterloo and Australian Maths Competitions, AAPT Physics Bowl and Rising Star China Chemistry Challenge. In 2019, we hosted the ASDAN Business Simulation competition.

CIS Vision Statement

CIS is a community characterized by multi-culturalism, internationalism, dynamism, and global-mindedness, where best practices in modern education and Confucius ideas fuse; an environment where students can achieve their full potential and become global citizens and ambitious, self-reflective learners, balanced enquirers and achievers, and ambassadors of Chinese culture.

School Philosophy

Confucius International School (CIS) was founded by the 76th descendant of Confucius and the Chairman of World Confucius Foundation, Mr. Kong Lingtao. CIS has created a unique internationalized “Double Tri-Colour” education system, incorporating the advantages of Confucian New Six Arts Institute, British elite education(A-Levels), and American elite education(AP courses). CIS's education, through the three nurturing systems of society, school and family, amalgamates the internationalized New Six Arts with the finest curriculums in the world. The internationalized New Six Arts is an elevation of the traditional Confucian Six Arts which are“Li, Yue, She, Yu, Shu, Shù”. CIS is committed to the development of whole-student education with international perspective and skills. It is the sponsor of inheriting and promoting Chinese culture and Confucian Educational philosophy, and a pioneer in China's international elite education in terms of researching and developing international high quality education resources to combine the merits of both Chinese and Western education.


The predecessor of the Anren, Chengdu campus of the Hongwen School is the Wencai Middle School, a famous school in southwest China, which was built with a donation of USD2 million from Liu Wencai in 1945. The campus, which is located in the ancient town of Anren, covers an area of more than 200 acres. Anren Ancient Town, which dates back more 1,300 years, is a location rich in natural and cultural resources. The value and scale of existing cultural relics, as well as the number of museums located, in Anren Ancient Town places the town as among the best of its kind across the country. In 2009, Anren Ancient Town was named “Chinese Museum Town” by the Chinese Museums Association.
