Best in Class Education Center Celebrates its 50th Nationwide Opening


HOUSTON: Founded with the mission to “Give the Gift of a Lifetime” to K-12 students nationwide, Best in Class Education Center, an unmatched education enrichment franchise with programs focusing on math and English, has a lot to celebrate this school year. From opening in new states throughout the country to expanding within existing states, Best in Class is proud to open the brand’s 50th nationwide location Mill Creek, Washington.

After Best in Class Founder and CEO Hao Lam fled Vietnam’s communist government in the late 1980s, he worked tirelessly to put himself through school at the University of British Columbia where he graduated at the top of his class with a BA in Mathematics. During that time, he tutored classmates through complex coursework and difficult exams – and that’s when a spark ignited. Lam knew that educating others was his ultimate passion in life.

“My wife Lisa and I opened our first Best in Class center in 1995 in the heart of Seattle, and since then, the business has grown rapidly through franchise partners and an excellent corporate team, all who have the same passion for education that we do,” Lam said. “We have worked extremely hard and feel like this is a true accomplishment to hit this special milestone. We’ve helped hundreds of students around the country so far and look forward to supporting even more students in the years ahead.”

With centers currently open in California, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and Washington, Best in Class is confident that they will continue to evolve into a leading nationwide brand. The current team behind Best in Class is continuously looking for passionate and dedicated individuals to join this premier franchise family and ensure our youth will excel academically.

“We’ve already experienced tremendous growth in 2017, and our 50th opening represents a huge achievement for us,” said Lam. “It’s a very exciting time to join our brand, and we look forward to continuing to impact the lives of more and more families throughout the country.”
