The Chung Hwa Correspondence School was established by the Overseas Compatriot Affairs Commission of Taiwan to promote overseas compatriot education.

Courses of Chinese language education and vocational skills are offered by correspondence and the Internet to provide the overseas compatriots with the life-long learning opportunities.

Originally named the Overseas Chinese School of Education by Correspondence, the Chung Hwa Correspondence School was founded in 1940 in Chungching, China to recruit those who were willing to dedicate to overseas compatriot educations.

It was reopened in 1956 in Taiwan and renamed Chung Hwa Correspondence School in 1966 and the recruitment was also enlarged from overseas compatriot school teachers to general overseas compatriots.
