Vista Higher Learning was founded in 1999 with a mission to raise the teaching of foreign languages to a higher level.

Since inception, the Company has consistently grown faster than the industry and is now the market share leader in most of the markets in which it competes.  Committed to helping people communicate across languages and cultures, VHL has differentiated itself from its competition through its focus and specialization on language-learning, superior pedagogy and client service,  investment in leading edge media and technology, and authentic content that keeps students engaged.

How We Helped

Next Street was engaged by VHL in 2008 to develop a multi-year plan for the next stage of growth. Our role has been to function as a partner in growth and “extension of the team” working closely with the owner and senior leadership team on a range of critical initiatives – shifting our focus with the constant evolution and needs of the business. Work has included strategic planning, product / market strategies, pricing strategies, sales planning and management, as well as leadership and organizational development.

Our Impact

  • VHL’s revenue has quadrupled since the inception of our relationship
  • VHL has continued to grow market share in a market with intense competition as well as rapidly changing product, channel, and customer dynamics
  • NXST has supported VHL’s growth through substantial changes to its organization and infrastructure
