Kaplan Inc. is a result-oriented organization known for educational excellence, providing the resources and pathways that students, businesses, and institutions need for continued success. The company’s founder, Stanley Kaplan, began tutoring his peers when he was still a student in Brooklyn in the 1930s. His passion for helping his students led him to establish his own tutoring company in 1938. A year later, he graduated from City College of New York and soon devoted himself full-time to helping students succeed.
Kaplan was established with a vision that students from all backgrounds should have the opportunity to succeed. As the need for continued education has grown, Kaplan’s offerings have expanded from preparing students for high-stakes admissions exams to preparing individuals for employment and career advancement, as well as supporting colleges and universities to help their students succeed and enabling employers to support their staff with ongoing education and training opportunities.
Today, the organization remains committed to helping individuals realize their potential and succeed academically and professionally.
