YouStrong Academy LLC



YouStrong Academy (YSA) is founded to provide a one-stop-solution to meet the educational needs of Chinese families.

JAN 8TH, 2021 – Three companies, Light 2 Path (L2P), Lehren Education, and Premier Education Partners (PREP) today announced that they are forming a single entity, YouStrong Academy, in order to provide an extensive education service to Chinese families, no matter where they are.

For too long, in pursuing the best educational experience, the holistic development of youth has been overlooked. Chinese families are looking for an educational advisor whom they can trust with their most precious treasures, their sons and daughters. YSA’s mission is to equip youth with good moral character and competencies so that they can be faithful stewards of the world. The core values of YSA’s educational model are 5Cs: conviction, community, character, calling, and competencies.

PREP was founded in 2014 to provide a distinct study abroad experience that includes homestay, community services, and outdoor adventure. Lehren Education was created in 2014 to provide premium college application services. L2P was established in 2017 to provide high-quality online English training as well as impactful camp experiences for cultural immersion. All three businesses have been run by leaders who were educated in the most prestigious universities in China and the USA and obtained extensive work experience in multinational companies.

What distinguishes YSA is its uncompromised focus on its mission, a team of experienced educators who show professionalism and love, and its foundation in three successful companies. The YSA founders envision a new world where every youth can choose their own path that can lead to their success and happiness, and most importantly, the fulfillment of their life purpose.

Going forward, YSA will integrate the three businesses under the same umbrella, develop a shared customer base and community, build a new educational platform, and welcome other service providers to join our mission and become our partners.

The following blog was originally posted on Brentwood Christian School, one of PREP’s partner schools in Austin. 

It can be easy in today’s climate to lose sight of all the positivity and kindness that is going on all around us. The truth is, when you turn off the television and log out of social media you will begin to see all of the amazing and wonderful things happening in our community. Today we want to spotlight an act of kindness and the difference some of our students are making in and around the Austin Area.

Premier Education Partners (PREP) is a Christian hosting program for international students who desire to gain a better education in the U.S.. PREP has a long standing partnership with Brentwood Christian School as we both believe in the importance of offering an academically rich, Christ-centered environment for our students. We have a number of wonderful international students that attend BCS and are very active not only academically, but also in fine arts and athletics.

There is nothing better than a yummy Chinese food to make your student smile. Of course, they like the food you cook but they miss the smell and the taste of foods from their own country. Plus what a wonderful opportunity to get to know the Chinese culture while the whole family enjoys a great meal together!

We hand-picked the best of best Chinese restaurants in Austin and hope you will find an opportunity to try some of them. I am sure you won’t regret and certainly, your student will thank you for a long time!

With the approval from the students’ parents, host parents and PREP, students will be allowed to learn how to drive and secure a driver license. Their application will be reviewed on case by case basis.

There are many driving schools/online driving courses that you can choose. For sake of convenience, I am using Austin Driving School as an example as they have many locations. Another excellent option especially for families in Cedar Park and Round Rock area is Wilco Driving School. The owner teaches and does the testing, so students can be less intimidated by the actual road test.
