Greetings From the Principal
Welcome to the Xian Yun Academy community! Our Academy is the only private arts high school in San Francisco. We offer a unique opportunity for students to gain a holistic education by combining rigorous academics with our pre-professional arts programs. Each student chooses an individual track: Art, Ballet, Music, or Chinese Dance, with exposure to the other three.
Our arts programs enrich students’ lives with beauty and ignite their passion for the arts. A traditional arts training promotes focus and self-discipline, learning efficiency, and improved academic performance. Whether you dream of being an artist, a dancer, or even a doctor, we will help you acquire the knowledge and skills to achieve your goal.
Xian Yun Academy is more than just a school. We are a community committed to the welfare of our students as they grow into adulthood. We strive to cultivate in our students the core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, empathy, and tolerance. A moral foundation of this kind enables them to develop a sense of self, embrace cultural diversity, and learn to become citizens of the world.
To our students, we promise that we will guide you to reach your highest potential. To the parents of our students, we promise to give your child a nurturing environment, where they can mature into intelligent and responsible young adults.
To arrange a visit with the school, please call or email us. I look forward to meeting you!
Dr. Sherry Zhang
Principal of Xian Yun Academy of the Arts, California
