History of the Academy
The Jao Tsung-I Academy is located in a cluster of Grade III historic buildings that are over a hundred years old. In the late 19th century, the government of the Qing dynasty set up a customs station at this location. In the early 20th century, the British built dwellings for Chinese Labourers, leaving behind the earliest buildings on the site. Subsequently, the passage of time meant that the compound went through many phases of repair work and renovation, having successively served as a quarantine station, a prison, a hospital for infectious diseases, and a psychiatric rehabilitation centre.
