Nearly 60 Years of Chinese Instruction

The International Chinese Language Program (ICLP) was founded in 1962 by Stanford University, for the purpose of training and developing the oral discursive ability of America's academic elite. Since its founding, ICLP has grown in international stature and has provided instruction to thousands of students who have served in academia and government. 


Building on ICLP's history, CGY launched in the fall of 2020 to provide a gap year experience for high school graduates who want to intensively study Chinese, immerse themselves in a foreign culture and society, and experience the freedom to grow and make friends.
