Having gathered achievements and triumphs during his academic career at DeBakey High School, most notably the Golden Torch Award and JAMP Rice Honors Pre-Med Academy and Baylor College of Medicine, founder and CEO Duc Dinh has extracted and integrated the elements of the elite systems to generate a unique developmental program for K-12 learners. Established in 2007, started with 12 students in a flat, Duc Dinh Center (DDC) has since developed more than 30,000 students in Houston and across the U.S with a current 12,000 sq. ft. campus laying in the heart of Chinatown. With the word-of-mouth spreading between parents: "Want your kids to be the elites? Send them to Duc Dinh," teachers and students of DDC are determined to remain the pride of the overseas Vietnamese.

           Our educators here at the center have made Nelson Mandela’s famous words a philosophy to live by. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” We have already used our influence on students to change the community around us, and eagerly await the opportunity to affect the world at large.
