Khan Academy Annual Report 2017

Hello from Sal

Millions of people around the world use Khan Academy to learn and to improve their lives. We’re inspired by their hard work and thankful to the supporters who make it possible.

In school, out of school — all around the world — Khan Academy is helping kids learn

Students celebrated learning in LearnStorm, our first-ever national education challenge

LearnStorm is a back-to-school challenge that helps teachers and students in grades 3-12 overcome summer learning loss and start the school year strong. In 2017, thanks to support from AT&T, GM, and Carnegie Corporation of New York, LearnStorm rolled out in all 50 states to more than 23,000 teachers and nearly one million students.

Practicing for the SAT on Khan Academy is associated with significant score gains

Research shows studying for the SAT for 20 hours on Khan Academy is associated with an average score increase of 115 points, nearly double the average score gain of students who don't use Khan Academy. We're proud to work with our partner, the College Board, to level the playing field with Official SAT Practice.

* Average score growth between PSAT and SAT

When my teachers introduced me to Khan Academy, I was so happy that it was free. The website was simple, straight to the point, and it really helped me with problem solving.” - Matthew, Khan Academy Learner

Khan Academy empowers teachers

Imagine a classroom where students can learn at their own individual pace. The teacher knows just where they are stuck and has time to provide one-on-one attention. Khan Academy’s teacher tools empower teachers like Brooke Hogan from Long Beach Unified School District to create those sort of classrooms. Long Beach Unified is a district with traditionally underserved and underrepresented demographics and one of a growing number of school districts across the country and around the world partnering with Khan Academy.

100%free LSAT prep

We announced Official LSAT Prep

In 2017, we partnered with the Law School Admission Council, the maker of the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). We’re happy to share Khan Academy Official LSAT Prep, the first free and official prep for the LSAT. Aspiring law students can now build the skills and confidence they need to succeed on the LSAT - and it’s 100% free.

By the Numbers

“I came to know about Khan Academy when I was in high school. Now I am in college, and I am so glad to have Khan Academy by my side to inspire and support me.

Because of you, I have started to believe that yes, ANYONE CAN LEARN ANYTHING. Thanks so much.”

– Pranjali, Khan Academy Learner

Looking Ahead

“We’ve already grown from having deep, effective personalized practice and instruction in math to a comprehensive interactive experience spanning core academic subjects and grades from pre-K to early college. We are pushing to build richer, even more robust content and tools for kids who want to learn and those who want to help them.

We’ve seen the power of bringing Khan Academy into the classroom. In this next year, we are building on that success by being even more focused on how we can support teachers to supercharge learning in the classroom. Everyone should have access to the education they need to achieve their dreams.”

– Ginny Lee, President and COO

Building for students and teachers around the globe

Deepening our international footprint

We’re proud that Khan Academy is used in more than 190 countries around the world. We continue to invest in tools to make it possible for Khan Academy to be localized for learners and teachers globally. Outside the US, we’re particularly focused on growing Khan Academy’s reach and impact in India, Brazil, Mexico, and Peru, largely through partnerships with local school systems.

190+countries around the world


Anjali, a Khan Academy learner in India, has overcome many barriers to education and become an inspiration to her classmates.


We’re honored to help 2.6 million Brazilian students pursue their dreams.

Thank you very much for inventing this platform… Thanks to Khan Academy my grades went up significantly, so much so that I help my classmates."

- Mauro, Khan Academy Learner (Mexico)

We have content and resources for 14AP courses

More resources for AP courses

We offer thousands of practice questions, videos, and articles for AP courses, including AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Macroeconomics, and AP Government and Politics. Our AP resources are created and reviewed by experts, including AP teachers, PhD subject experts, and AP exam readers. We will be offering even more resources for AP courses soon. Stay tuned!

Launch of Khan Academy Kids for ages 2 to 5

This summer, look for Khan Academy Kids, a new mobile app for early learners. Built by our award-winning early learning team, the app features original animated characters and standards-aligned interactive activities to help prepare children for kindergarten and develop a lifelong love of learning.

Why We Give

“I am thankful that Khan Academy is provided for free, and I will continue to donate monthly to ensure that others will have the opportunity that I did.”

– William, Khan Academy Learner

Our community of supporters provides education to unlock human potential

Thanks to our Supporters

“In this last year, I saw Khan Academy help teachers transform their classrooms, empower children to learn regardless of their access to a school, and enable students to improve their scores on critical exams like the SAT.

As proud as I am of these results, they are only possible because of your support. Thank you for being part of making access to a high-quality education a reality.”

– Ann Doerr, Board Chair

Your support changes lives and improves the world. Thank you for being part of bringing a world-class education to people everywhere.
