About The Learning Lamp/Ignite Education Solutions

The Learning Lamp is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage all children in the support they need to succeed. The Learning Lamp provides services for thousands of children, families, and schools in communities throughout south-central PA.

The organization started in 2003 with a simple idea – to provide children of all incomes in Johnstown with access to high-quality tutoring without the high price tag. In the two decades since, The Learning Lamp has grown into a multi-faceted organization that gives children, families, and schools greater options for improving academic achievement. In 2022, we served 34,813 youth/adults from 61 public school districts and 70 other schools and organizations in 22 PA counties.

A recognized regional leader in Early Childhood Education (ECE), The Learning Lamp is a respected organization with a reputation for innovation, problem-solving, and systems-level change. The organization operates an ECE Registered Pre-apprenticeship program in the Southern Alleghenies, serves as a regional hub for ECE Registered Apprenticeship and alternate higher learning pathways, and coordinates a Shared Services network of 57 early learning providers serving 5,079 children at 110 sites in 14 counties.
