About The Harvard Learning Centers, Inc.

The Harvard Learning Centers, Inc. offers training programs for both the mind and body of teenagers and young adults. Historically, its primary focus has been to offer SAT-ACT test preparations that help high school students succeed (www.sat-act-prep.com). SAT and ACT are standardized tests used by most U.S. colleges and universities for admission and placement decisions and scholarship eligibility. For SAT-ACT test preparation, the Harvard Learning Centers, Inc. offers classroom and online courses along with private tutoring.

In April 2007, Harvard Learning Centers, Inc. expanded into the Youth Sports Training Market with the acquisition of BSA Athletics, Inc., an early-stage sports training and fitness company, headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, and ASAP Athletics, Inc. ("ASAP"), which operates a 5,000 square foot national sports training center for athletes in West Boca Raton, Florida. Harvard Learning Centers has stated that ASAP is the first of a series of "speed" camps that it plans to operate nationally.

In May 2007, Harvard Learning Centers, Inc. announced that it will immediately begin offering through its web site and to students in its classroom and tutorial programs, the full line of test preparation materials published by the Nova Press, Los Angeles, California. This new line will include books, software and online courses not only for preparation for the SAT, but for the LSAT, GMAT, GRE and MCAT graduate level tests†. All materials will be prominently co-branded with the Harvard Learning Center brand identity. This agreement greatly expands the offerings of Harvard Learning Centers, Inc., while allowing it to enter totally new national markets in higher education, and, via the Internet, significantly broaden its reach for its existing SAT-ACT test-prep products and services.
