Our Story

Talent Academy is a Mandarin Chinese language center that specializes in Mandarin education from early childhood. Mandarin Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world and the third in the United States. As our world becomes more diversified and culturally interconnected, the proficiency in Mandarin Chinese will give our children a competitive advantage for the future.

Our teaching philosophy is child-centered and discovery-based. Each child is given individual attention while their different learning styles and diverse backgrounds are respected. What we teach at Talent Academy is more than just a language. Our culture-rich curriculum covers arts, reading, writing, science and math. We are opening doors and building bridges to connect our children with an increasingly global world, and helping them gain essential skills to achieve success in today’s global economy.

Founded in 2003 by two Sugar Land, TX mothers who shared the same passion for Chinese language, Talent Academy started as a small after school class for elementary school kids. Today, Talent Academy has grown into a facility that offers not only full-day day care with immersion program for preschool age children, but also after school Mandarin program for elementary school age children. On top of that, Talent Academy’s Weekend Program and Summer Camp have been serving our community kids as the best place to experience the fun and learning.
