This might be the most mysterious school in China.

The gates are closely guarded by the People's Armed Police, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Headmasters of this place, a training ground for future leaders of the Communist Party of China (CPC), are always one of the country's vice-presidents, if not the president. Former headmasters include Mao Zedong, Liu Shaoqi and Hu Jintao.


Group interviews were on the agenda last June when about 70 journalists from home and abroad visited the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. By influencing decision-makers, experts say, the Central Party School is partly navigating the country's development. Provided to China Daily

It is also a haven where possible cures for China's economic and social ills are discussed and debated, and where policy trends are set.

Situated next to the Summer Palace, an 18th century imperial retreat in suburban Beijing's northwest, the Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China - the Central Party School - is like no other university or college in the country.

Without the usual hustle and bustle, the 100-hectare leafy campus is extremely quiet, and almost empty. There is no bicycle congestion. Instead, the roads outside school buildings are lined with black Audis, the German brand selected as the government's official sedans.

The serenity and security are prepared for those who study there - provincial governors and ministers, young and middle-aged officials, their guest speakers and sometimes the country's top leaders.

The speeches that top leaders deliver at the Central Party School, and their articles printed in the school's publications, often signal new strategies and policies that will be adopted by the central government.
