Nerdy About Education. Small but mighty. Eager to Please.
We were nerds before it was cool.
From the beginning, we had one goal: make materials that help teachers teach and students learn. To us, that means making material intuitive and easy-to-use. It means providing exceptional support, cutting costs instead of corners, and preparing students to succeed where it matters most: their careers.
For the past 25 years, we've provided educators and students with better learning materials for Microsoft Office, QuickBooks & accounting, and computing fundamentals. Yeah, we know, we look good for our age.
Why Labyrinth Learning
Teaching and learning have never been easier. No, really.
Career-ready learning: Problems and examples based in reality to prepare students for the real world.
Customer support: An in-house support team of real people, not robots.
Exceptional value: Student budgets love us.
Our giving Program
Every student deserves the right to an education.
Making a real difference goes beyond what your team can do for students in the classroom. That's why we donate a portion of every sale to support underserved students. This year we're supporting the Maui Economic Development Board, an organization dedicated to the development of a robust economy that benefits the people of Maui, and CFES Brilliant Pathways, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping students unlock their brightest futures.

"I had a company training scheduled, and the day before the training I realized there were no books for the PowerPoint portion. I contacted Labyrinth, and even though my day was booked and I was hard to reach, they went through the extra time and effort to make sure someone got through to me. With the PDFs sent to me, I was able to conduct the class, and it turned out great! Labyrinth provided customer service at its best."
