北維州實驗中文學校 (Northern Virginia Experimental Chinese School - NVAECS) 由一群家長創建於1991年，為維州州政府正式登記成立的非營利組織。本校秉持著寓教於樂的宗旨，以從遊戲中學習的教學理念與方針，為大家提供中文教育及中華文化的推廣與傳承。現有師生三百多人，於星期日下午兩點到四點於香堤里高中 (Chantilly High School) 上課。
The Northern Virginia Experimental Chinese School (ECS) was founded in 1991 by a group of parents and is a non-profit organization officially registered with the State of Virginia. With over 350 students, 26 teachers, and a school board comprised of parent volunteers, we are one of the largest Chinese schools in Northern Virginia. Our mission is to provide Chinese language and cultural education to our students thereby promoting increased Chinese cultural awareness throughout the greater community in which we live. Classes are held at Chantilly High School, 4201 Stringfellow Road, Chantilly, VA 20151 from 2-4 pm on Sundays.
ECS enrolls students age three and up, placed among 13 levels/grades according to each student's age and ability with classes available using either zhuyin or pinyin to teach Mandarin Chinese. In keeping with our vision, we apply non-traditional educational methods to supplement classroom teaching, including cultural classes, family social events, sports and other extra-curricular activities, and most importantly dragon boat racing. This approach increases the opportunities for students and parents to communicate with each other, deepen understanding, and increase the effectiveness of what is taught in the classroom.
