Catapult Learning Merges with SESI
July 2015

Signal Hill is pleased to announce that its client, Catapult Learning, a leading technology-enabled K–12 services provider, has merged with Specialized Education Services, Inc. (SESI), a premier provider of alternative and special education services, resulting in the creation of the unsurpassed industry leader of contracted instructional services in the U.S.

The new organization, to be officially known as Catapult Learning, Inc., is uniquely positioned to deliver an unprecedented portfolio of proven effective programs and services all under one umbrella and all targeted to improve academic achievement and performance. The merger of the two educational services providers also reflects a growing trend for school districts to outsource services for struggling students and those students with special needs.

“Signal Hill has been a trusted advisor to Catapult Learning for many years.  They are focused on helping clients see the big picture in order to orchestrate the best outcome for their clients.  Its more than doing a deal, its helping clients get to the right answer.”

Stuart Udell, CEO
