About Our Company
Dipont was originally founded in Australia in 1990 as a private emigration and visa consulting company, focused primarily on providing advice, support and services to Chinese students studying overseas. In 1994, Dipont began roll-out in mainland China and established branch offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Chengdu, Xi'an, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Hangzhou and Wuxi.
International Education in China
In 2003, we became a senior subsidiary centre and associate partner of the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) in China. This was a further milestone for Dipont - in entering a new sector to provide direct educational services to Chinese institutions and students. Dipont adopted the strategy of cooperating closely with provincial educational administrations on behalf of CIE and individual public high schools. Great success was achieved with this strategy and Dipont became the largest provider of CIE A Levels in China.
In order to expand our international curricula offering, we became authorized participants of the AP Program in 2009 and in 2012/13, gained authorization for 6 schools to deliver the IB Diploma Programme.
At present, Dipont has over 500 Chinese employees, more than 400 expatriate employees and over 6,000 students currently studying in our international curricula centers.
Cultural Exchange Programs
Our additional educational programs have developed over the past 15 years, including 'Academic Year in America'; special courses for gifted and talented students; short-term educational camps and pre-college programs.
In 2011, we developed both our school based and independent college counseling services.
ENREACHTM Programs and Learning Centers
In 2013 Dipont launched ENREACHTM programs in order to provide a variety of enrichment programs to Chinese students after school and at weekends. These programs include academic debate, college counseling, drama, pre-school, SAT training and liberal arts courses.
There are currently four ENREACHTM centers - located in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Ningbo.
