School Specialty to Acquire Triumph Learning, Provider of K-12 Curriculum and Test Prep

Aug 22, 2017

TRIUMPH LEARNING, a NYC-based publisher of print and digital K-12 instructional materials, will be acquired by School Specialty, a distributor of educational supplies and curriculum materials headquartered in Greenville, Wisc. Terms of the pending deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 1999, Triumph Learning has created test-prep materials along with supplemental resources for ELA, math and science subjects. Among its digital offerings were Waggle, an adaptive assessment tool that has been discontinued.

According to the press release, Triumph Learning claims it has reached 6 million students across 29,000 U.S. schools in the past three years, and makes $25 million in annual revenue. It adds: “While operating and other general and administrative synergies will be achieved as Triumph Learning’s operations, personnel and systems are integrated into School Specialty, the Triumph sales and product development teams will become part of the newly formed Instruction & Intervention category, which focuses primarily on the supplemental learning market.”
