Chuck Yang, Founder & President of Fayao Education and Headmaster of Admiral Farragut Academy Tianjin
Born and raised in Heping District, I grew up witnessing the great changes in Tianjin over the past decades. I left home for college in the age of 18, since then I have always wanted to come home and contribute to the development of my hometown. After finishing my graduate studies in the U.S., I decided to work in Education and help local students learn better by offering them rigorous and diverse curriculum from all over the world. Since 2013, we have collaborated with Admiral Farragut Academy in Florida to build dual-diploma high school programs across China. We currently operate three programs in Tianjin, Shanghai and Dongguan, with a total enrollment of more than 1,000 students.
With more than 100 faculty members across the country, we are a team that is dedicated to deliver the best bilingual and global education to our families. In the next three years, we plan to open a new high school in Tianjin and a new vocational high school in Dongguan.
I have served on the executive board of AmCham Tianjin since 2020. I am also a member of All-China Youth Federation Heping Chapter and a member of Overseas-educated Scholars Association of China Tianjin Chapter.
My wife Ellen and I are married in 2017. We live in Heping District and we have a 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son.
