With  the rise of China as a superpower, questions such as whether China will  dominate global society emerge. However, to understand China’s power in  shaping future society, one must first examine how the elites from  China successfully compete in the global arena. This study examines the  process through which a new generation of elites from China are groomed.  Drawing on ethnography with 28 elite Beijing teenagers from 2012 to  2019 and interviews with their teachers and parents, I find that the  elite Chinese youth learn important skills in high school. Specifically,  they learn the rules that govern status systems, navigate status  hierarchies according to their positions, and make contingency plans.  Because these youth have parallel behaviors in high school, during  college, and at work across countries, the skills they learned in  adolescence carry long-term consequences. Implications of the findings  on global inequality are discussed.
