YMCA of HK Christian College is a large secondary school on Lantau Island that offers an international-style education based on the Christian faith.

Founded by the YMCA of Hong Kong in September 2003, YMCA of HK Christian College is a secondary school with a large international student body. Located on Lantau Island, this Direct Subsidy Scheme school offers an international style education based on the Christian faith and values.

Students have the choice of studying the local Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) or IGCSEs and A Levels. More than 70% are international students coming from over 40 countries, and more than 40% of teachers are from overseas, including the UK, US, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Japan, and India. The average class size is 25.

The school has a spacious and beautiful campus, equipped with generous-sized classrooms, specialist rooms including a fine art centre and drama room, and sports facilities including an artificial turf pitch, multi-purpose sports field, four-lane running track, and long jump sand-pit. Other facilities include a TV studio, student learning centre, fitness room, and science and computer labs.

This English-medium school is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) school, which means that it receives a subsidy from the government. The DSS scheme was introduced by the Education Bureau in 1991 to help improve the offering of private education in Hong Kong. DSS schools have the freedom to design their own curriculum and set their own school fees, but they must focus on offering a curriculum that targets local students and prepares them for local examinations.

As with all DSS schools, it has its own admissions policy rather than following the government’s Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme, and its annual tuition fees are significantly lower than at other international schools (HKD 70,000 for Hong Kong residents, and fees are available on request for international students).

 

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service. Please help us keep prospective parents up to date with your latest information.
