Chairman & Founder’s Message

Chairman & Founder's Message


This is JongHwan Patrick Park, Chairman of Elite Educational Institute.

I believe that a lot of effort and support are required to satisfy and help people get a high quality education. Since starting an education business in the United States in 1987, I have supported many students who got accepted into top Universities. And a lot of our students get perfect scores on their SAT Reasoning Tests.


We feel so proud with these results and we are very happy to be recognized as an outstanding leader in the education field in the States. However, my most important priority is the students who are committed to Elite.

We always thank our parents for their loyalty and trust in our Elite staff at the campuses around the world.

Especially, I appreciate the Elite Canada team's dedication and their continuous mind to growth, which has produced academic results beyond our expectation. Elite Canada has played a very important role in expanding the excellent reputation of Elite internationally, including Canada. We always thank our parents for their loyalty and trust in our Elite staff at the campuses around the world.

We at Elite Educational Institute are continuously dedicated to growing global leaders for the future, with our brilliant teachers, excellent materials, and professional counseling based on accurate and up-to-date data.
