Sylvan Learning Results

Millions of Successful Students and Counting

At Sylvan Learning, results matter, simple as that. We’re committed to ensuring every child advances in our programs, and we’ve got a 30-year track record of successful students.

We know academic results are important to you. Our programs align with college and career readiness standards, ensuring what your child learns at Sylvan is being reflected in the classroom. Better yet, Sylvan students have significantly improved their math and reading scores 2x more than non-Sylvan students.


"Expected score gains" represent the average score gains achieved by non-Sylvan students in school. "Actual score gains" represent the score gains achieved by students using Sylvan Insight™—from the time they're assessed to the time we measure their progress.

Expected gains by national samples of students who took Renaissance Learning's STAR tests. Actual gains are gains achieved by Sylvan students on the same tests. See Sylvan research results at


With Sylvan, Results Extend Far Beyond School

Together, we’ll celebrate right answers, better grades and impressive test results. Our methods produce plenty of all three.

But just as important, success will be the big smile you’ll see on your son’s face when he reads aloud with confidence. It’ll be watching the light bulb come on when your daughter understands an algebra problem. It’ll be seeing your child grow into a confident young adult who enjoys learning.

That’s when you’ll realize you’ve made a great decision for your child's future.
