Welcome

At XIS, we recognize that learning happens both in and out of the classroom. We are so excited to provide our school community with various opportunities to learn and grow in all facets of life: physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and morally.

Our XIS community strives to embrace a growth mindset each and every day. Challenges are simply opportunities to grow and learn. While some may say, “I can’t do this” Warriors say, “I can’t do this YET!”

“The expert an anything was once a beginner”

XIS Warrior Fund

Xi’an International School After School Activities all began with a dream. The dream was to develop a Physical Education program that benefited XIS students. With this dream, XIS Athletics expanded to include Volleyball, Basketball, Soccer, and Table Tennis. Now, XIS Athletics grew even further to become XIS After School Activities which includes sport teams as well as academic clubs.

 

In honor of our staff and volunteers’ dedication to continuing our After School Activities an Athletics Scholarship Fund was created. In order to continue in the spirit of its mission while recognizing the growth of XIS, the fund has since been renamed the XIS Warrior Fund.

 

At XIS, we believe that every student should be provided the opportunity to participate in ASA’s, regardless of their ability to pay. The XIS Warrior Fund is designed to financially assist and help students have opportunities to participate in XIS After School Activities.
