Kaplan Test Prep, the world leader in test prep, has partnered with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) to improve access to and quality of post-secondary educational opportunities for Hispanic students.

"By partnering with HACU, a champion for Hispanic success in higher education, we will provide access to quality prep programs that will open more doors and opportunities for students in Hispanic-Serving School Districts," said Justin Serrano, President of Kaplan K12 and College Prep. "We share a common mission of furthering Hispanic success in education, which is fundamental to our nation's economic and social success. We look forward to working closely with HACU school and district partners as they prepare their students for college."

HACU represents more than 400 colleges and universities committed to Hispanic higher education success in addition to K-12 Hispanic-Serving School Districts (HSSDs) across the country. Kaplan is a partner in HACU's 25th Annual Conference in October, "25 Years of Championing Hispanic Higher Education Success," which will feature workshops and presentations covering more than 50 topics as well as a College and Career Fair sponsored, in-part, by Kaplan. The HACU College and Career Fair is open to the public from 2-5 PM on Sunday, October 30.
