2019-08-07 16:32:35 GMT

Last year more than 70 million people used Khan Academy. Even more importantly 1.5 million of those users spent enough time on Khan Academy to lead to significant academic results. Wow!

We are so proud of everyone who spent time learning on Khan Academy and are especially grateful to our community of supporters who make it all possible. 

Check out some of the things we accomplished in 2018! 

1. World-class learning around the world
More people than ever before use Khan Academy to learn and reach their potential!

2. Equalizing access to college
Students’ ability to achieve their goals shouldn’t depend on their families’ ability to pay for test prep.

In 2018, 2.3 million students used Khan Academy to prepare for the SAT.

3. Doing more to reach the students who need it most
Lack of access to quality education is a persistent barrier to progress in the United States. This lack of opportunity disproportionately affects low-income families and students of color. To help make sure that all students have equal access, Khan Academy partners with teachers and school districts, particularly those who are reaching underserved students. Right now the population of students using Khan Academy mirrors the population of students in the United States. And we want to do even more to bring academic resources to those who need it.

4. Getting our littlest learners ready for kindergarten.
In July 2018, Khan Academy launched Khan Academy Kids, a free mobile app primarily for children ages two to six with no ads or in-app purchases.

In just five months we saw strong participation:

  • 1.4 million downloads
  • 5 million books read
  • 22 million math activities finished
  • 5 million social-emotional activities completed

These are just a few of the incredible things we were able to accomplish in 2018!

We’ve continued to make progress in 2019, and we plan to do even more. If you would like to be a part of the difference we are making, please give today!
