METEN Preparatory Academy, or MPA, is a private institution located in Chengdu, China. Having partnered with Greenville High School in Pennsylvania, MPA offers a quality college preparatory American curriculum to high school students. One of the main goals for students at MPA is for Chinese students to take two years of Greenville High School credit courses in Chengdu, and upon successfully completing those two years, attend Greenville High School for their last year of secondary schooling and receiving their U.S. high school diploma.
METEN Preparatory Academy (MPA) fosters the harmonious development of the adolescent student’s gift. We strive to enhance their spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, aesthetic, and capabilities. We aim to accomplish this development by demonstrating a personal concern for individuals. A special concern is dedicated to the academically weak student in the Chinese public school system, Simply, we aspire a sense of community. In so doing, the school strives to graduate leaders who are committed to serve their community and their fellow men and women. Our goal is to develop students with a profound sense independent thinking and make a difference in their future career and life. “The 2+1 program is a great opportunity for the students to experience Greenville, Pennsylvania endorsed and certified teachers to represent our high school and the curriculum that takes place at Greenville high school in China for two years. So as students study and build their own Greenville High School transcript, they are not only earning credits from Greenville High School and having experiences with American teachers, they’re also gaining the opportunity to position themselves to come at a great advantage to U.S. to study at the final year at Greenville high school.”
