About the CHEER Foundation
The CHEER Foundation is an international educational non-profit organization founded in 1995. CHEER offers a range of services and leading educational programs, underpinned by values of excellence, shared diversity, cultural understanding, and leadership within a global community.
CHEER is an expert in educational practice, offering services in teacher recruitment, student recruitment, and consulting in curriculum research and development. By recruiting outstanding teachers from abroad, CHEER aims to promote educational excellence in secondary schools in China. We do this through the development of global thinkers; and to facilitate progression to high-ranking universities on a global level, with a focus on higher education in the Netherlands as well as developing relations with Higher Education instiutions in the the United Kingdom and beyond.
In 2011, in collaboration with six leading international secondary schools (Eton College, Groton School, Geelong Grammar School, Harvard-Westlake School, Beijing No.4 High School, and the High School Affiliated to Fudan University), CHEER played a key strategic role in establishing the World Leading Schools Association (WLSA), an international network of students, educators and leaders from secondary schools and universities.
The CHEER Foundation continues to be a key strategic partner of WLSA as one strand of its mission to promote thought leadership, innovative curricula, and educational excellence across a global network; and to establish & maintain a network of schools in China, where students enjoy a curriculum which brings together the best of east & west, from which they progress to prestigious higher education globally.
