IXL Learning Makes Its 3rd Acquisition in as Many Years: Vocabulary.com

Mar 10, 2020

IXL Learning, a provider of online K-12 instructional and assessment tools, has acquired Vocabulary.com, which offers exercises and practice materials for its namesake subject. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to the press release, Vocabulary.com claims it has a footprint in more than 40,000 schools across the world, where students play its vocabulary games, take quizzes assigned by teachers, and participate in game-like competitions with others in their class or at other schools. The company, based in New York, was founded in 2010.

For IXL Learning, this marks its third acquisition in as many years, following its purchase of Education.com in 2019 and ABCya in 2018. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company claims its tools are used by 8 million students, including those in 95 of the 100 biggest districts.
