About Blueprint Test Prep

Blueprint Next Step is the leading boutique test prep company in the graduate entrance exam space, providing groundbreaking courses and tools for the LSAT (Blueprint) and MCAT (Next Step). Backed by private equity, we are looking to create substantial growth in our product lines and market reach via organic growth and M&A opportunities.

Behind the fancy business lingo, we are a founder-led company that started with a simple vision to prep students better than the big companies by making learning more engaging and entertaining. We are educators at heart looking to serve our students better every day.

Company Culture

At Blueprint, we know that in order to produce a product that at it's core is about making learning fun, we, the creators behind it, need to make sure WE are having fun. Although COVID has shifted our many in person meetings and activities to Zoom- that does not stop us. We have monthly town halls where we shout out people that exemplified the values that past month. We ship bottles of Gin to everyone's home for a virtual Gin cocktail class, we have costume contests, voting sticker selfie contests, cookie decorating classes, team happy hours just because, virtual lunches with our CEO (awkward when not everyone orders Uber Eats at the same time), and so much more to come! Once back in the office located in the Playa District, there is a bar onsite, a cafe, gym, plenty of outdoor space with BBQ's, TV's and Basketball Courts.
