Capital Education to Sell to Catapult Learning

November 29, 2018

Washington, DC – November 29, 2018 – Cooley advised Capital Education Group, a leading provider of behavioral health services and private school programs for children with autism and other specialized learning needs, on its sale to Catapult Learning. Mike Lincoln, Marc Samuel and Kerry Killeen led the Cooley team advising Capital Education.

“This acquisition unites two like-minded companies that are devoted to helping children succeed,” said Marina Major, president of Capital Education, in a statement. “We’re excited to bring the resources of Catapult Learning to bear on the exceptional track record Capital Education Group has with the communities we serve.”

Capital Education’s expertise in addressing autism spectrum disorders and delivering applied behavior analysis (ABA) services outside of the school environment complements Catapult’s commitment to helping students succeed through special education and instructional intervention solutions, regardless of the learning obstacles or other challenges they face.

Capital Education operates a portfolio of programs designed to address the needs of children with autism, including three Auburn School campuses, multiple ABA clinics and an in-home program. The Auburn School is an independent day school, offering stimulating educational programs for intellectually engaged students with challenges in the areas of communication, socialization, language and organization.
