Hsinchu County American School (HCAS) believes in learning, growing, and developing outside of the four walls of the classroom. Much of character building and cultivation of core values (honesty, compassion, courage, humility, citizenship, justice, conservation, good sportsmanship, self-reliance, respect, and responsibility) are learned by interaction between people at home or school community. Therefore, we offer variety of opportunities for activities both during and after school for our students.
While the co-curricular activities allow our students to follow their passion and interests as they relate to their subjects in school during the Lab time, extra-curricular activities help students to hone in their physical and social skills. Please feel free to explore our school’s Lab and extracurricular activities offered at HCAS.
On weekends, we offer activities through the Star Academy. Tailored made for students in the kindergarten age, students play games and learn the importance of collaboration.
In the near future, we are planning to offer tutoring center for students who require SAT, TOEFL, and other major testing preparation. Please stay tuned.

The Dormitory Residential Program (DRP) at Hsinchu County American School (HCAS) strives to support life-learning by developing responsibility, interdependence, freedom and cooperation. Boarding is an option for students to create a home away from home during the weekdays and to go home on the weekends. Currently, HCAS plans to cater to grade 9 to grade 12 students. There are two wings to separate accommodation for boys and girls with a dorm parent residence in between.
HCAS provides excellent brand new dormitory facility in which every student has a double occupancy space with study tables and closets. Students attend study hall, a time for self-directed learning, and staff members are on hand to provide guidance and mentoring for individual students. DRP ensures that students are happy, healthy and safe, while in our care.
