About Catapult Learning
Achieving Beyond Expectations: Serving K-12 children who struggle with academics.
We believe the key to unlocking a child’s potential lies within a motivating learning environment that is sensitive to his or her unique instructional needs. That’s why we partner with schools and school districts to better understand the challenges children face, and offer customized solutions that range from small-group K-12 instructional intervention services, to extended-day and summer learning programs, to turnkey professional development and more.
For 35 years, Catapult Learning and our predecessor companies have partnered with education institutions, government agencies, and community groups, providing outcomes-based learning programs that are tailored to individual student needs and produce positive academic results. Catapult Learning, a privately owned company, is a leading provider of contracted educational services to schools and districts nationwide and last year we provided more than 106,000 services to students in approximately 1,400 schools. We are currently the largest, most experienced provider of contracted educational services to non-public schools in the country. Our instruction, our services, and our people motivate the students we serve to achieve great success in school and beyond.
