Who We Are 

Our Chinese language after school program is the hallmark offering at New West Learning Center, where we offer Chinese language instruction in conjunction with a robust physical fitness program, enhanced with a variety of academic enrichment opportunities.



The program takes place Monday through Friday, 4 pm to 6:30 pm during the school year.  Students may arrive anytime after 4 pm. Chinese classes start promptly at 4:20 pm.

Busing or Drop Off

Students may arrive via our bus (with pick-up at dismissal from select HCPSS elementary schools) or


Student may arrive via parent-organized car pools. Car pool participants can opt for bus transportation once a minimum number of participants is confirmed at any given HCPSS elementary school. 

Note: New West will guarantee bus service from any HCPSS elementary with a minimum of FOUR (4) confirmed student participants. New West reserves the right to increase the minimum requirement as the program grows, however, once a bus route is confirmed we will not cancel service in the middle of a school year. Volunteer as a Community Bus Coordinator by arranging FOUR students from YOUR school, and receive a discount off your September tuition. 



Our facility is located in the Rumsey Center (east of MD-29 and north of MD-103, off Red Branch Road).  Our buses pick up from select HCPSS elementary schools. Our growing bus route currently includes:
