Huntington in the News


  • “The support that Huntington corporate provides its franchisees is outstanding. Both initial and ongoing training are wonderful and comprehensive. If you follow the Huntington system and aggressively market the product, success is yours.” – Cheri Reid, Skokie, IL
  • “I can’t think of a more positive business experience and opportunity! For those who want to go into business for themselves and make a positive impact on the lives of children, Huntington provides the framework to make it happen. After leaving the military after a successful 20 year career, my wife and I have started, bought, or sold seven individual Huntington centers and I can’t think of spending the last 13 years doing anything else. Huntington’s training is top notch, its program rock solid, and its results nothing short of miraculous. We give hope back to parents and their children by providing children the skills, confidence and motivation to succeed for a lifetime.” – Todd Sain, Las Vegas, NV
  • “My son was a student at the Huntington Learning Center in Ashburn, VA. My wife and I were extremely impressed with the quality of teachers at the center, as well as the individual attention the staff provided my son. When I had the opportunity to pursue a second career, I jumped at the chance of acquiring the center. Huntington is a well-run company in an exciting industry. I love the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our youth and enhance some of the terrific educational opportunities they have in Loudoun County.” -John Dec, Ashburn, VA
  • “As a Veteran of almost 16 years and still serving, I wouldn’t have wanted to do anything else during those years. I loved what I did and who I was with. Not only were all the men and women I worked with brave, they were also the most dedicated, loyal, smart, innovative, and passionate people I’ve ever seen. We were passionate about helping others, and our country. When I got into education and found myself with Huntington, I felt passionate about it; I’m helping kids, families, and our next generation. Like all the soldiers I worked with, that have given their sacrifice for the freedoms and liberties we have as Americans. This Memorial Day is a time we need to honor those in service and giving that sacrifice for something that is greater than just themselves. They serve us, so we should honor them. The first Administrator of the Veterans Administration (VA) General Omar Bradley once said “We are dealing with veterans, not procedures; with their problems, not ours.” – Shawn Livingston, Raleigh, NC
