“I’m an educator first and businessperson second, but my instincts told me there was a need for supplemental education in today’s world,” says Eileen Huntington. “There were just too many students who weren’t meeting their potential, and we believed that with a personalized program, they could learn.”
Eileen, along with her husband, Raymond J. Huntington, began Huntington Learning Centers, Inc. with a mission: “To give every student the best education possible.” This had become and remains the company’s mission statement. Huntington Learning Centers are now operating in 41 states including the District of Columbia with more than 300 centers nationwide.

This individualized strategy is also true of Huntington’s specialized SAT and ACT test prep which is unlike any other program offered in the industry. The growth and success of Huntington has much to do with their unique programs, but the programs go hand-in-hand with trained and certified, dedicated teachers.
