Kumon was founded by Toru Kumon, a Japanese educator, in 1958, opening the first Kumon Math Center in Moriguchi City, Osaka. Initial growth of Kumon was slow, only gaining 63,000 students over its first 16 years. However, in 1974 Kumon published a book titled The Secret of Kumon Math, leading to a doubling of its size in the next two years. Kumon opened their first United States locations in 1983, and by 1985, Kumon reached 1.4 million students. As of 2008, Kumon had over 26,000 centers around the globe with over 4 million registered students. As of 2018, there were 410,000 students enrolled in 2,200 centers across the United States.
