Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen founded Apex Learning in 1997 to apply online courses and test prep to K-12 material. The company initially focused on Advanced Placement courses and test prep. Within one year of operation, 200 students used the Apex platform.
Apex Learning raised $37 million in venture capital. In 2002, Cheryl Vedoe founder of Tenth Planet and VP of Education Marketing at Apple Inc., became CEO of Apex. That same year, it acquired Beyond Books. Apex Learning acquired Boxer Math in 2003. In 2006, Apex had a $6 million round of venture capital financing led by MK Capital.
In May 2017, Apex Learning was acquired by Education Growth Partners, however the terms were not disclosed. The following August, Apex Learning released Tutorials for the General Education Development (GED), High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) and the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) exams. Since 2015, Apex has been approved by the College Board for Advanced Placement courses.
