Who We Are

In 1997, with the humble goal of spreading compassion and kindness to the next generation, Bay Area Tzu Chi Foundation volunteers gathered to form the first Tzu Chi Academy in Northern California: Tzu Chi Academy, San Mateo.

Master Cheng Yen encourages all children to develop into well-rounded human beings. In addition to our two hours of Mandarin Learning, we have a period dedicated to culture and character building curriculum. Gratitude, respect, and love are at the core of our learning as human beings. These values extend not only towards our families, but also to our environment. Activities are designed to bring these characteristics into real life, for example: recycling stations, kindness challenges, and visiting senior centers during holidays.

Academy of San Mateo welcomes students from all backgrounds to our 32-week programs.programs. Families that speak Mandarin Chinese at home can join our traditional track focusing more on reading and writing. Families that speak other languages at home can join our bilingual track focusing more on listening, speaking, and typing. 

27 years after our humble beginnings, we continue to strive to become well-rounded human beings, growing with our students and families in a loving and caring environment. We welcome you to join us.
