Preparing Students for a Lifetime of Success. We’re proud to help students overcome challenges that can stand in the way of their education.
Why We Give
Stanley Kaplan was a Brooklyn-born son of immigrants and first-generation college student who understood the power of education. What started at age 14 when he tutored peers in his basement became a lifelong devotion to teaching. He believed that success should be based on merit, not heritage, wealth, or social status, and he saw test prep as a way to open doors, regardless of background. Stanley wasn’t just preparing students for the test, but a lifetime of success.
