Kaplan is a global private education company—global in every sense of the word.
We offer a diverse range of learning programs, helping our students get to where they’re going, wherever they may be coming from.
Since 1938, starting as a tutorial school in the basement of Stanley Kaplan’s family home in Brooklyn, Kaplan has championed innovation. By continually responding to student needs and readily adapting to fill gaps in the market, Kaplan changed what was thought possible in education.
This unflagging focus on the individual helped Kaplan grow and grow, and today we are opening doors to educational opportunities around the world, inspiring people from all walks of life to strive for their personal best. We exist to enable students to achieve their educational and career goals through industry-relevant learning that is respected by employers worldwide.
At Kaplan we build futures one success story at a time.
