A Pioneer in Educational Access

Founded by Stanley Kaplan, a first-generation college student, Kaplan is one of the world’s largest, most diverse education providers. When Mr. Kaplan created the first test preparation business in the U.S., his goal was to give students access to higher education based on academic merit, regardless of background. Today, Kaplan remains rooted by its belief in the power of education to open doors, helping students pass any test, achieve any goal, and reach any milestone.
