About C2 Education
At C2, we believe in our students and in their potential for greatness. We take students towards their dreams. C2 helps our students and their families benefit from a better education, now and always.
C2 Education was founded 25 years ago in a Harvard University dorm room by David Kim and Jim Narangajavana. On weekends, Jim provided SAT® prep to local high school students. And they both felt strongly that every student should have a shot at the best schools and opportunities. Working together, they started a tutoring company to help high school students get into their first choice colleges.
Since 1997, C2 has grown from that Harvard dorm room to over 135 centers in 15 states and Canada. All C2 services are now available in person, online, or hybrid.
Our students’ success speaks volumes. In the last five years, C2 students have received 25,000+ dream college acceptances and over $180 million in scholarship offers.
Whether a student wants to improve their test score or boost their GPA, our face-to-face, personalized programs work. We’re not an 8-week class with 20 students and we’re not a series of online videos you watch when you have time. We get to know our students and create comprehensive plans to both succeed in high school and be ready to meet the challenges of college. And we don’t do it alone – it takes time and commitment from our students and their families. Working together, we get great results — higher SAT and ACT scores, better GPAs, and more dream college acceptances.
