Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions also offers private tutoring and one-on-one admissions guidance.
Kaplan Higher Education
Kaplan Higher Education is one of the largest for-profit providers of postsecondary education in the U.S., serving more students than many public universities. Kaplan operates more than 70 campuses in the U.S. and abroad as well as online programs through Kaplan University and Concord Law School. Kaplan Higher Education offers students career-oriented master's, bachelor's and associate's degrees as well as certificates and diplomas. Students gain the skills necessary to qualify them for employment in a variety of fields, including criminal justice, health care, business, education, financial planning, information technology, legal studies, fashion and design. Each of the U.S. schools is separately accredited by one of several national or regional accrediting agencies approved by the U.S. Department of Education.
Kaplan also operates a number of higher education businesses outside the US, including Holborn College in the UK and Dublin Business School in Ireland. Kaplan Open Learning, based in the UK, provides a range of online distance learning foundation degree programs. Kaplan also operates APMI Kaplan in Singapore, which provides undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate education through affiliations with institutions in Australia, the U.K., Ireland and the U.S.
With operations in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa, Kaplan Professional is one of the premier providers of training and continuing education to businesses and individuals in the accounting, insurance, securities, real estate, financial planning and information technology industries. Through classroom instruction and hundreds of online courses and programs, Kaplan Professional serves customers who must comply with regulatory requirements and who want to earn advanced professional designations to help them succeed in their careers.
Kaplan Professional provides many of the world's leading financial institutions with licensing and continuing education products that prepare students to earn sought-after qualifications. In addition, its education and compliance management solutions enable companies to manage learning initiatives, monitor employee training performance and track corporate compliance activities - all critical to doing business in an increasingly complex regulatory environment.
Kaplan in the Community
Drawing upon its 70 years of experience in the education sector, Kaplan offers a wide range of services to communities and individuals in need. Kaplan's community outreach efforts touch neighborhoods across the country and are supported by each of the Kaplan businesses, often working in partnership with non-profit organizations.
Kaplan's most recent philanthropic initiative is the Kaplan Educational Foundation. Through its leadership program, the Foundation serves talented community college students in need of financial assistance who have the potential to become positive and influential members of their communities. The program offers these high-achieving, low-income students the resources and guidance they need to finish their associate's degrees and continue their studies at four-year universities.
In addition to funding for college, each student receives mentoring and career counseling, leadership training, and individualized academic advising. The program also enables students to interact with business, community, and academic leaders.
Kaplan also participates in a number of other community outreach activities that assist thousands of individuals each year. From Los Angeles to London to Tel Aviv, employees are involved in Kaplan-sponsored initiatives that help students realize their dreams. In addition, Kaplan provides free test preparation, college admissions guidance and books to disadvantaged students in many communities. The company also supports local organizations such as Citizens' Committee for Children, New York/Chicago Cares and Reading is Fundamental.
In 2006, the company launched the first Kaplan Three Peaks Challenge, a climb of the three highest mountains in Great Britain. The event raised several hundred thousand dollars for CARE International, one of the world's leading organizations fighting poverty in developing countries. Kaplan's fundraising supports CARE's educational projects in India, including improving the quality of impoverished schools and literacy rates of female students.
