20 Years of Providing Academic Excellence to the Southwest Region


SOUTHLAKE, Texas, June 13, 2017 — The Dallas Branch of Kumon North America is celebrating its 20th year of providing academic enrichment to thousands of children in communities across four states in the region.

The Dallas branch office supports the franchise operations of 60 Kumon after-school math and reading centers throughout Arkansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas. Kumon learning centers in these areas currently provide nearly 12,000 local children in preschool through high school with the skills needed to compete in today’s world.

Greater Dallas is the largest metropolitan area in Texas with an increase in the area’s population by one million since the 2000 census. Southlake is one of the most prominent and affluent suburbs of Dallas known for its superior public schools. Recognizing the value placed on education throughout the region, Kumon established its presence with the opening of the Dallas branch office in Southlake back in 1997.

“We are very appreciative of the reception that Kumon has received in this region for the past 20 years,” said Neil VanCleve, the Dallas branch manager for Kumon North America. “Kumon’s main goal and commitment is to provide as many children as possible with an academic advantage and love for learning. We wouldn’t be able to do that without the support we’ve received from communities across our branch.”
