Who We Are

Improving Lives Through Education.

About Us

Our mission is simple: We help people improve their lives through education. Founded in 2001 by a professor from the University of Louisville, Learning House has been helping to bring education to more people in more places for almost two decades. While the services we offer have evolved since our beginning, at our core is the belief that education transforms lives and a willingness to embrace technology to make that transformation accessible to all. Whether it’s partnering with colleges and universities, directly serving students with just-in-time education or locking arms with enterprise, we are driven by our culture of growth, servant leadership and total ownership. It’s just the Learning House Way.

What Sets Us Apart

Enterprise Approach

Learning House doesn’t cherry-pick certain programs to work with; instead, we work with the entire institution, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, to offer the best programs possible. We aren’t just a vendor — we are a true partner, as invested in your success as you are.

Quality Focused

Our commitment to quality is integral to our success. That starts with student satisfaction and continues through high-quality curricula, faculty development and continual assessment of the quality we’re providing.

Thought Leadership

By conducting research, partnering with organizations like WCET and CIC, and hosting events like our Connect Higher Education Summit, Learning House remains at the forefront of education thought. Our blog, uncompromisingEDU, discusses current trends in the industry, so you can stay ahead of them.

Analytics and Technology

Data drives our decision making at Learning House. We use a variety of tools and make use of different metrics to inform our decisions and push for continual improvement within our company and for our partners.

The Learning House Way

Our corporate culture underpins everything we do. By focusing on our primary colors of growth, total ownership and servant leadership, we ensure that we act with integrity and constantly strive to improve.
