NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., December 7, 2017—Curriculum Associates was recently named the 2017 Company of the Year in the Enterprise category in the SIIA Company CODiE Awards. Curriculum Associates was chosen by SIIA’s team of experts based on its significant growth in revenue, strong company culture, and demonstrated commitment to the community over the last year.

Over the course of its nearly 50-year history, Curriculum Associates has transformed from a small print workbook provider to a cutting-edge leader in the educational technology space. Currently the sixth largest company in the industry, Curriculum Associates serves schools and districts nationwide with a comprehensive blended print and digital assessment and instruction solution comprised of its award-winning Ready® and i-Ready® programs. Collectively, these programs are now used by more than 300,000 educators and 6 million students nationwide, representing more than 15% of K–8 students in the United States.
Recognized among the fastest-growing companies in the industry, over the last year Curriculum Associates has enhanced its rapidly growing digital instruction offerings to meet the evolving needs of students and educators and added nearly 130 employees. Its products have received stellar ratings from trusted third-party organizations such as EdReports.org and the National Center on Intensive Intervention, and the company has won numerous awards both for its products and service. A company committed to philanthropy, Curriculum Associates made headlines this past year with its historic donation of majority shares to charity, a gift of approximately $200 million which represented the largest gifts ever given to both the Iowa State University Foundation and the Boston Foundation.
