Dipont operates international education Centers within existing Chinese high schools. These programs function as schools within schools. We deliver international curricula to Chinese students: Advanced Placement (AP), A-level (British curriculum) and International Baccalaureate (IB).
We currently directly manage 24 international programs in many of the best high schools in China serving approximately 7,000 students.
All of our students will go to university abroad; most of them in Top 100 schools. We have graduated nearly 30,000 to date.

Our students forego the Chinese national college entrance exam and all will attend university outside of China, predominantly in the United Kingdom and the United States. We annually have students accepted to schools such as Cambridge, Oxford, Stanford, Penn, Duke, Cornell, and many other top schools.
