Huntington Learning Centers - Franchise


Founded in 1977, Huntington Learning Center is the top-performing franchise in the tutoring industry. With average center revenues that are 29% higher than that of the competition*, Huntington Learning Center offers a business model that is based on helping students achieve world-class results. In fact, on average, our tutoring students increase over two grade levels in reading and math in just 50 hours of tutoring and our test prep students increase 5.4 points on the ACT and 299 points on the SAT, which helped them receive over $71,000 worth of scholarship offers each, which is over $187 million in scholarship offers collectively. By becoming a Huntington Learning Center franchise, you join a brand that is passionate about student success and franchisee profitability with a proven track record that makes a lasting difference.

*Data are based on each company’s Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD) for all franchise centers open in 2019, except for Kumon, which are for centers open at least three years; and Sylvan, which are for centers open at least 24 months. Kumon reports in its 2021 FDD that its average franchised center open at least 36 months had 150 subject-students. We estimate a subject-student’s monthly fee from our web search of the phrase ‘How much does a parent pay Kumon’. We used the average of the high estimates, $145 per month per single subject. We estimated the registration fee of $50 and materials fee of $30 from this web search; and we estimate that half of a center’s enrollees pay these fees. 

The leading tutoring franchise is committed to helping every student get the best education possible.

Huntington Learning Center is the highest-performing tutoring franchise in the nation. We believe that by delivering world-class results for our students, profitability will follow. For nearly 5 decades, Huntington Learning Center has proven that by joining us, you can own a thriving, growing business that makes a real difference in your communities.

With approximately 300 locations across the country, Huntington Learning Center helps thousands of students every day. By putting student results first, our centers generate 29% more revenue than the competition in 2019*, and we’ve experienced more than eight years of double sales increases.

In the wake of COVID-19, our growth is expected to continue, as millions of students have fallen behind. This has created a crisis that our franchise owners know how to solve.

“Now is the perfect time to get into Huntington Learning Center, because the need for help is stronger than ever,” says Anne Huntington Sharma, President and Board Member of Huntington Learning Center. “The impact of the pandemic on students is very real. There’s a lost generation of students who fell extremely behind, creating a crisis in education. Huntington Learning Center can solve this massive problem. It’s what we’ve been doing for more than 5 decades; and, it’s why our students’ results are great and why our franchise owners perform so much higher than our competitors.”


What makes Huntington Learning Center an exceptional business? It’s our long and consistent track record of helping students achieve incredible results. It’s our long and consistent track record of helping students achieve incredible results that give Huntington Learning Center a competitive edge. On average, our students increase over two grade levels in reading and math in just three months. Our test prep students increase 5.4 points on the ACT and 229 points on the SAT.

These are phenomenal, industry-leading results.

We get these results by going above and beyond the rest of the industry. Before a student begins a Huntington Learning Center program, we administer a student assessment, which we call an Academic Evaluation, to determine where the student currently is academically and develop an individualized learning plan to get them to grade level or higher. We customize each program for every student to ensure that each student learns at the student’s own pace and develops confidence. We make sure that the student’s family is involved throughout the process with regular meetings; and, with the family’s permission, we will also meet with the student’s school teachers to ensure that we are all working toward the same goal.

Huntington Learning Center is accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges & Schools and Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and our tutors are certified. We are committed to excellence.

“Families who turn to Huntington want the best for their children, and that’s what we do. We listen to the families and we provide solutions,” says Eileen Huntington, CEO and Co-Founder of Huntington Learning Center. “On average, our test prep students get more than $70,000 in college scholarships. Plus, the amount of students able to increase their ACT and SAT scores with Huntington is just phenomenal – and we’re the only company that shares our results because they’re that good. Our other side of the business is K-12 tutoring and, on average, our students increase over 2 grade levels in just 50 hours of tutoring. Just think about that. When parents hear those results, they say, ‘Hey, this really works.’ And they’re right—Huntington really does work.”


You don’t stay in business for over four decades without results. By emphasizing student success first and foremost, the Huntington Learning Center business model is centered around integrity, compassion and doing the right thing. As a result, our franchise owners are pillars of their community, and all of them have countless stories to tell about how Huntington Learning Center has changed students’ lives.

At the same time, Huntington Learning Center is committed to franchisee profitability. We offer industry-leading training and support and have designed a business model that is low-cost, easy to run and quick to scale. This is why over 30% of our franchise owners own multiple centers—and why many of our franchise owners have been in business for decades.

“We invest millions of dollars in support and training to help our franchise owners increase their profitability,” says Dr. Raymond Huntington, Chairman and Co-Founder of Huntington Learning Center. “We believe strongly that the more profitable our franchise owners are, the bigger the impact they will have on their students and in their communities. This is a powerful brand to be a part of and it’s a recession-resistant business that offers multiple revenue streams and provides a service that’s always in demand. The time to invest in a Huntington Learning Center franchise is now.”
