- Top Education Franchise Brand Seeks Franchisees in Key Growth Market -

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sylvan Learning, the personal learning pioneer for more than three million students and counting, is expanding its Washington, D.C. footprint with education franchise opportunities for local entrepreneurs to own new centers in the metro area. The company has had decades of success serving families in the market and seeks to expand to new locations over the next two years.

Sylvan is targeting expansion in 11 undeveloped territories in the D.C. metro area that are ready for their first Sylvan Learning Center. Communities such as Northwest D.C., Southeast D.C., Bethesda, Silver Spring, District Heights and Landham, Md., will be considered, as well as Alexandria, Woodbridge, Bristol, Burke and Manassas, Va. Sylvan Learning currently operates six locations in the D.C. metro area.

"Supplemental education services have never been more in demand and Sylvan's proven business model, breakthrough technology and reasonable investment cost have made us the country's top education franchise," said Scott Hurlock, vice president of franchise development, Sylvan Learning. "With school budget cuts resulting in larger class sizes and fewer resources, and with increased competition to get into colleges of choice, more families are seeking the personal learning experience that can only be found at Sylvan."  

Sylvan Learning has been a category leader for more than three decades because the company is committed to innovation that meets the needs of today's students and the business goals of its franchisees.   No other education franchise offers Sylvan's state-of-the-art Insight process, which pairs a best-in-class computer-adaptive assessment with a student's self-assessment of habits and attitudes toward academics to create a 360-degree view of each child's needs. This allows Sylvan to design learning plans that adapt to each child's individual skill level and pace, meeting the needs of any family throughout its academic journey. 

"With 20 years experience in education, including several years with Sylvan's corporate office, I thought opening my own Sylvan Learning Center made good business sense. There's no question that in the Washington, D.C., metro area families value education and are looking for the best possible resources," said Doug Mesecar, who opened his first Sylvan Learning Center in McLean, Va., last April. "At Sylvan, there's an emphasis on 21st-century learning. It's a modern education company that serves children in a very relevant way, whether through our assessment of a child's needs or the lessons delivered through SylvanSync™, a revolutionary digital teaching system."

Sylvan continues to distance itself from the competition and lead the growing education and technology industry with its proprietary iPad® teaching system called SylvanSync™, which blends personal lessons taught by Sylvan-certified instructors with technology students love. Sylvan is the only supplemental education brand to offer this breakthrough learning technology, which also enables center owners to scale their business by bringing the Learning Center directly to their students. Franchisees are able to offer Sylvan's proven programs at schools, community centers and libraries and gain market share in the process.

"Our ideal franchisee has a passion for education and for making a difference through learning that is unique to every student, every time," said Hurlock. "Offering our franchisees innovative technology like SylvanSync™ gives them the tools they need to succeed as a Sylvan business owner and ultimately have a positive impact on their community."

Sylvan Learning seeks single- and multi-unit operators to join in the brand's rapid expansion across the U.S. and Canada. New territories are now available in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
