What is Kumon?

Kumon is the after-school learning center where kids can start as young as three and stay through completion of the program at calculus and Shakespeare. Kumon kids stand out because they not only master math and reading, they develop skills for success such as focus, confidence and grit.

When you open a Kumon Center, you aren’t tutoring kids through a short-term struggle, you are following a unique and proven method of learning that instills self-learning and develops top-notch students ready for lifelong success.

Make a Smart Business Decision

  • We cover up to $19,000 in start-up costs.
  • Our franchise fee is only $1,000.
  • We’ve been awarded the honor of being Entrepreneur magazine’s #1 Tutoring Franchise 17 years in a row, earning us the “Best of the Best” ranking.

We’re here to support you from your very first request for information, offering a system of success supported by training, materials and marketing to drive your business.


What We Look For in Franchise Candidates

All applicants need a bachelor’s degree and either U.S. citizenship or a green card, in addition to meeting the liquidity requirements of $70,000 and net worth requirements of $150,000.

Beyond that, we look for people who will make a full-time commitment to their business and who have a desire to develop relationships with families in their community and to see kids succeed, not just in math and reading, but in life.

If you value academic excellence, find satisfaction in helping kids long term, and enjoy being part of a community, you’ll find everything you’re looking for when you open a Kumon Center.
