Huntington’s Offerings for the 2020-2021 Academic Year Continue to Expand as Need for Increased Education Resources Nationwide Grows
Oradell, NJ | October 7, 2020 – Huntington Learning Center has announced that it will partner with Fortune 500 companies nationwide to provide in-person and virtual academic programs including the recently launched study hall, tutoring and test prep programs, homework help, and academic performance coach program to their employees’ families. This expanded business-to-business offering will allow companies to tap into Huntington’s proven learning methods and provide much-needed support to their employees, many of whom are struggling to manage a full-time workload with family obligations.
“Huntington Learning Center is a family-founded, family-run, and family-focused company. Since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve heard from thousands of parents that they need more resources, and we, like the Fortune 500 companies we’re partnering with, are rising to the occasion to help meet that demand,” said Anne Huntington, President of Huntington Learning Center. “With approximately 300 locations across the nation, we’re uniquely positioned to be able to offer educational support to corporate employees and their families in many major metro and suburban markets across the country. Bridging the work and school gap for parents is just another layer of the foundation we continue to build in order to provide families and students access to the best resources possible.”
