Central Party School of the Communist Party of China
The Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China () in Beijing, also known as the Central Party School, is the highest institution to train officials of the Communist Party of China. As of October 03, 2007, it has about 1,300 students. The current president is Xi Jinping.
The Party School was established as the CPC Central Committee's Marx School of Communism () in Ruijin, Jiangxi in 1933. It folded when the Red Army left on the Long March and was revived again once the CPC leadership had arrived and settled in Shaanxi, northwest China, in the winter of 1936. It was now renamed the Central Party School. The School was suspended in 1947 when the CPC retreated from Yan'an. It was re-opened in 1948.
