Helping students achieve their best

We empower students to accomplish their goals by providing an outstanding curriculum and the highest-quality instructors in the industry.

Students do their best when they have the best teachers

In 2000, Teach for America alumnus and Yale graduate Zeke Vanderhoek had a radical idea: students learn better from better teachers. His vision of what test prep could be if taught by great educators led him to assemble a team of highly qualified teachers, recruiting only those with 99th percentile scores and substantial teaching experience. And with them, Manhattan Prep was born.

Socially Responsible Programs:

Manhattan Prep has the Social Venture Scholarship program where we offer full-tuition scholarships to 16 students per year. These competitive scholarships are offered to individuals who (1) currently work full-time in an organization that promotes positive social change, (2) plan to use their degree to work in a public, not-for-profit, or other venture with a social-change oriented mission, and (3) demonstrate clear financial need. 

Our parent company, Kaplan Test Prep, has the Kaplan Educational Foundation which provides academic advising, financial aid, and leadership development to eliminate barriers to higher education for overlooked and underserved students and develop them as world leaders and advocates for their communities.
