Cannon School is happy to announce that a trip to China is in the planning stages for June 2015.  Details will be provided after quotes are received from several travel agents. Anticipated price range will be around $4000-4500.  This will be our bi-annual trip to visit our sister school (they visit every year).  Students will have the opportunity to travel different cities in China: Beijing, Xian, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu and visit our sister school Tianli in Luzhou City. Students will experience the educational and cultural differences between two countries and taste different kind of cuisines. The main effort is to immerse students into the language and culture. However, Experiencing the variety of food is also a big part of trip. Your slate will be totally leased and  you will never feel hungry again. We will stay at many different  top quality hotels and have an opportunity for sightseeing many nice areas around China, and participate in cultural activities with our sister school-Tianli. It is amazing to see just how happy the heart can be when you witness the tremendous cross-culture sharing Cannon students experienced during our last travel to China in the summer of 2013. We learned from each other, and collaborated with other students in China and now understand the world  in a better view.




We welcome students and parents join this trip. If you are interested in joining the trip, please sign up with a $300 deposit to Cannon school. If you have any questions, please contact Upper School Chinese Teacher-Lirong Wang at
