Achieve Test Prep Wins a Spot among Top 100 Telecommute-Friendly Companies


Wayne, NJ—February 10, 2016—Achieve Test Prep, a leading provider of standardized test preparation courses, was recently honored by FlexJobs, an online job board that specializes in flexible schedule and work-from-home positions. The list was compiled based on an analysis of job postings from over 30,000 companies, between January and December of 2015. This marks the second year in a row that Achieve Test Prep was recognized.

Remote work options are an important part of our company culture because they parallel the kind of opportunities we want to create for college students,” explains Mark Olynyk, CEO of Achieve Test Prep. “Modern technology means we’re no longer limited by the logistics of travel or physical workspace. In the same way that students don’t need ivy-covered academic buildings or lecture halls in order to learn, we believe smart and engaged employees needn’t report to an office park, in order to contribute great things. And in fact, we believe both groups—students and employees—can benefit tremendously when those formalities and their requisite costs are removed.

Achieve Test Prep is an organization dedicated to creating faster, more affordable paths to college completion. ATP prepares students to pass a variety of standardized exams (CLEP, DSST, UExcel), which are now widely accepted by all types of colleges and universities. Achieve Test Prep also helps students leverage previous coursework and professional training, then apply these credits in order to bypass expensive, semester-length courses—particularly general education courses. It’s a model that can save students thousands, regardless of their chosen institution. Achieve Test Prep even delivers savings to students who are already enrolled at their college of choice.

“Our students are laser-focused on their career goals,” adds Olynyk. “They’re eager to learn the material that will inform their professional work, but understandably leery about wasting huge sums of money and time on busy work components—term papers, group projects, discussion board posts that are often required several times per week. These are hoops that students shouldn’t have to jump through. If they can prove their mastery of College Algebra, or Spanish, or Psychology 101 via a single exam, versus four months of classes, costing thousands each, we think they should have that opportunity.”

The strength of Achieve Test Prep’s message and the value in its offerings has helped the company grow rapidly. Now based in 36 states, and providing online test prep courses as well, the company says it’s proud to assist so many students, as they work toward accelerated college degrees. Being able to scout and hire exceptional employees—regardless of geography—is helping them keep pace with America’s demand for tuition-saving options.  

“When you look at the names of the other companies on this list, it’s a very impressive group to be part of,” says Olynyk, reflecting on the FlexJobs’ distinction. “As more students explore how credit by examination works, or begin to think about ‘testing out’ of non-essential courses, this is one more reason why our team stands out as the best partner in that process.”

Achieve Test Prep Launches New BSN Programs and Campuses

Leading provider of nursing bridge programs recaps major growth in 2013. Launching BSN bridge programs and nine new campus locations created a strong year for ATP

One of the ways we stand out is the live instruction we offer our online students. This is crucial to their success, states Mark Olynyk, CEO of Achieve Test Prep.

Achieve Test Prep, a leading provider of RN bridge programs, recently expanded its offerings to include five accelerated pathways for students pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. The test prep institution also unveiled nine new campus locations throughout Texas, Connecticut, and North Carolina.

Altogether, ATP now maintains 25 locations, in addition to its online study options. The accelerated nursing bridge programs are geared toward experienced healthcare professionals—including LPNs, paramedics, and current RNs.

“This year we began offering five BSN programs, all designed to build on the medical knowledge and clinical experience that working practitioners already have,” said Mark Olynyk, CEO of Achieve Test Prep. “Like our associate-level RN bridge programs, the fast-track BSN combines classroom learning with credit by examination. It’s a more efficient, cost-effective way for nurses to advance.”

ATP’s credit by examination model ensures that students learn all the necessary exam content, and then pass standardized exams in order to earn full college credit without actually taking the course. ATP’s program will allow you to attend a variety of well-known colleges and universities, who issue the appropriate credentials, according to their transfer credit policies.

ATP’s new campus locations come at a time when many nursing schools are being forced to turn away or “wait list” qualified applicants. But accessibility is just one of the factors that distinguish ATP from its competitors. Extremely high pass rates, personalized study plans, and online classes taught by live instructors are among other noteworthy distinctions.

“Ours is much more than a self-study option,” explains Olynyk. “We genuinely care about our students’ career development and long-term success. Our instructors and academic administrators are always available—via email, onsite support, or even through social media. We’re also committed to making higher education logistically possible. So we also prioritize convenience and affordability—putting nurses degrees back within reach of today’s busy adults.”
