Our Story

2009

A Pass Educational Group, LLC started small in October 2009 when Founder and Visionary, Andrew Pass, accepted a single instructional design contract from Pearson Learning Solutions. He approached other organizations and was soon picking up more instructional design work as well as new content creation projects.

2010

By early 2010, Pass had established relationships with so many additional clients that he began looking for freelance contractors to work with him.

2011

In 2011, Pass hired his first full-time project managers and operational staff. Senior management team members joined throughout 2011 and remain with the organization today. Sales for 2011 reached $526,000.00.

2012

By the beginning of 2012, A Pass had a full-time staff of four and had developed contract relationships with more than 100 freelance contractors. Applying the quality commitment that has defined A Pass from the start, business has continued to grow, and we now have a full-time staff of nineteen and more than 2,400 contractors.

2020

In 2020, A Pass acquired Victory Productions, another leading content development house for learning companies and organizations. With this acquisition, A Pass added high-quality educational language translation services in Spanish and other languages to its portfolio of K-12 and higher education offerings.

TODAY

Applying the quality commitment that has defined A Pass from the start, business has continued to grow, and we now have a full-time staff of over thirty and more than 2,400 contractors.

The A Pass team is very proud of its reputation for delivering high-quality work on time. We are also proud of our reputation as being responsive, friendly, and easy to work with.
