Curriculum Associates Named One of the 50 Fastest-Growing Private Companies and One of the Largest Private Companies in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal

North Billerica, MA, March 15, 2017

The Boston Business Journal announced that Curriculum Associates has been named to their 2017 “FAST 50” list of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Massachusetts for the third consecutive year. The publication also recognized Curriculum Associates as one of the state's Largest Private Companies for the second year in a row.

The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth in the preceding three years. Nearly 160 privately held companies applied for inclusion by submitting nominations that included financial performance, and the Business Journal's Research Department and CPA firm Withum, a Fast 50 partner, evaluated the figures provided to determine the rankings. Only those firms with a headquarters in Massachusetts and revenue of at least $500,000 in 2013 and $1 million in 2016 were considered. Companies that did not show growth from 2015 to 2016 were excluded. The Boston Business Journal announced the rankings at an awards reception on Thursday, May 11, at F1 Boston.

For nearly 50 years, Curriculum Associates has been on a mission to make classrooms better places for teachers and students. With a focus on reading and mathematics, the company offers an integrated print and digital solution for K–12 diagnostic assessment and instruction, making blended learning a reality in the classroom. Curriculum Associates provides more than 6 million students in all 50 states with the best adaptive assessment and personalized learning materials to prepare them for success. Today, Curriculum Associates is one of the fastest-growing companies in the industry, with revenues quintupling since 2008.

“We're thrilled to once again be recognized by the Boston Business Journal as one of the largest and fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “These two awards are a credit to our outstanding team, whose relentless focus on serving children and teachers drives our growth.”

The Boston Business Journal’s 2017 list of the 100 largest private companies in Massachusetts represents a veritable “who's who” of the Bay State's most-recognizable brands and industry powerhouses along with a number of fast-growing newer entities. Together, they accounted for more than $96 billion in revenue in 2016.
