Back to School: Best in Class Education Center Enters School Year with Eye on Growth

Proven Education Franchise Launches Plan to Increase National Presence

Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) September 05, 2013 - For the past 19 years, Best in Class Education Center (Best in Class) has not only served as the brand’s name, but as the ultimate model and standard for success in the educational field.

The growing franchise’s success is the result of CEO and Chairman Hao Lam’s love for teaching fused with his profound approach to and delivery of student curriculum. Leaving Canada with only his pickup truck and an impending stack of student loans, Lam set his sights on Seattle. In 1995, he opened his first Best in Class center, committing himself to providing quality education to his students.

He has since grown the franchise to include centers in Washington, Maryland, Ohio, Oregon and California. With ambitious plans to open in 46 states, Best in Class shows no signs of slowing.

"Best in Class is not an educational business to me. It is a lifestyle that I have cultivated and put all my energy into since its inception," Lam said. "My goal is to not only supplement and enrich the learning process, but to make sure that each student that comes to us is given the necessary personal attention he or she deserves. The success of our previous students proves to me that I’m in the right field. This is what I was meant to do."

Focusing on the individual needs of students through its tailored curriculum, Best in Class is a top-of-the-line educational enrichment program that focuses on math and English. With close attention placed on standardized tests, including SAT, ACT, ITBS and CogAT, Best in Class is positioned as the industry’s passionate providers of complementary education to elementary, middle and high school students. To achieve the brand’s philosophy of motivating and helping students to develop comprehensive analytical skills, Lam has created programs that emphasize understanding and long-term retention. Best in Class invests tremendous time and resources into research and development, ensuring the most comprehensive and supportive materials.

Aligning with its commitment as a top-tier educational program, all Best in Class educators must have college educations in their individual field of instruction, which is not a requirement at competing educational centers.

Many Best in Class students test in the top two percentile of their respective class, and student success stories range from JD degrees to Ph.D.’s. Teachers stay on top of each student’s progress by tracking their evaluations and projects from beginning to end and hand-grading all assignments. Best in Class also offers special support to students who are struggling, and helps them not only catch up to their classmates, but surpass them.

Hands-on instruction throughout the class period ensures that students achieve proficiency of the syllabus and concepts. In addition to professional assistance, Best in Class provides students with consistently updated educational materials to supplement verbal instruction, allowing teachers to measure progress and mastery of core curriculum.

"Our educational program is all-encompassing with enriched and ample study materials, weekly evaluations, thorough preparation and small classrooms to establish an area for individualized study and success," Laura Samorano, Best in Class Operations Manager and Head of English Development, said. "Our faculty teaches because we wholeheartedly want to spread the gift of education, and the success of our students is of the utmost importance. Giving a child the skill set to be productive – both personally and professionally – is our ultimate reward."

Best in Class also offers the best possible opportunity in the sector. With start-up costs ranging between $50,000 and $100,000 per center, Best in Class provides franchisees a minimal-risk option packaged with a rewarding experience. Scholastic materials are stored on an internal database and printed each week, so that inventory is minimized. Additionally, each franchisee is provided with territory protection; this ensures corporate support and abundant opportunity in local markets. The availability of many geographic regions and the quality of the brand set Best in Class apart as a premier option for future franchisees across the country.

"This is only the tip of the education iceberg. Our growth and success is continuing to build, and after people experience the quality of our unique program, I have no doubt we will be in business across the country," Lam said. "Quality education is something that courses not only through Best in Class’ philosophy, but through our hearts, and our expansion will only elevate the opportunities we have to raise awareness and spread our process throughout the nation."
