​Kaplan is one of the world’s largest and most diverse education providers. Throughout our more than 80-year history, Kaplan has been a beacon for expanding educational access and a leader in instructional innovation. 

We help students achieve their educational aspirations. We prep high school students for the SAT, so they can enter college and become teachers or engineers or whatever they dream. We help doctors and nurses, lawyers and financial advisors pass their licensing tests. We help adult learners return to college to earn a degree. We enable global educational experiences through language study and study abroad programs. We provide professional training to improve employees’ productivity and opportunities for career advancement.

Kaplan has a long history and deep experience providing educational services to colleges and universities across the globe. These take the form of university pathway programs, international student recruitment, university hosting, residential design and an array of student support services.  

For businesses, Kaplan provides expert exam preparation for professional licensure and certification as well as corporate training, leadership and professional development and educational consultation services.

The company has been a leader in adapting a learning engineering approach to course design and instructional delivery. Kaplan’s pioneering and leadership role in education is well documented. We created the test prep business and were an early leader in online education.  We have similarly been a leader in the New Economy Skills Training, which includes immersive computer coding “boot-camps” for people seeking to become web developers.  The company has also been a leader in adapting a learning engineering approach to course design and instructional delivery.

We continually strive to make the learning experience for our students the best we can with a rigorous focus on educational performance and results. Kaplan operates in over 30 countries and maintains relationships and partnerships with more than 1,000 school districts, colleges and universities, and over 10,000 corporations and businesses.  Our vast breadth and scope in terms of both capabilities and assets sets us apart from our competitors.
