C2 Education

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.

Our History

C2 Education was founded over 20 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 180 centers in 15 states. With over 1,200 teachers and more than 400 local Center Directors and Education Coordinators, we now work with over 14,000 students every week.

Our Results

Our students’ success speaks volumes. Last year alone, C2 students earned over 6,000 dream college acceptances and were offered $45 million in scholarships.

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.
