About US

EMPOWERING GROWTH

We partner with institutions of higher education as well as publishers and providers of K12 and higher education materials to create customized, high-quality educational content.

A Pass Educational Group, LLC is an organization dedicated to the development of quality educational resources.

We work with educational publishers of all sizes, developing assessment questions, curricula, and lesson plans. Started by Andrew Pass in 2009, the company now employs more than 2,000 contractors in multiple disciplines. Our clients include education giants such as Pearson Education, Scholastic, and Britannica.

The products developed by A Pass are not the results of a single individual’s efforts. Instead, we have a qualified team of individuals devoted to ensuring that we develop the highest-quality resources. Our team includes subject matter experts, instructional designers, course writers, technologists, and copy editors. Our staff comes from countless specializations and backgrounds. However, one important characteristic binds us together as the A Pass Team: We all believe that it is not about the technology; it is about the learning.

We believe in the value of education above all else, and we strive to create the best resources possible for our nation’s educators.

Our Story

A Pass Educational Group, LLC started small in October 2009 when the CEO, 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.

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

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 2,000 contractors.

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.

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. Finally, we cherish the loyalty of our staff and contractors.
