Welcome to Applied Scholastics Online Academy
Applied Scholastics1 Online Academy is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping students acquire a lifelong love of learning. We are fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Our vision is to help create a world free from illiteracy by offering at home and online services where the uniqueness of the individual is embraced. We feel students should have the option of studying in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes or in safe-havens—free from unrest and distraction.
We provide effective educational materials and innovative study methods. We use tools developed by American author and educator L. Ron Hubbard. This includes Study Technology2 founded upon decades of personal experience and educational research. As Hubbard wrote to Applied Scholastics in its formative stages, “It is of vital importance, as you are aware, that the quality of education be revitalized and improved. As Man is as able as he can learn and know—it is urgent that a workable learning technology is available to him.”
We envision a world in which people—with learning by Study Technology and self-confidence in their own unique individuality—are able to achieve their goals and improve their lives, thereby creating a new civilization founded upon knowledge and understanding.
This far-reaching goal begins with the individual student and spreads from there.
Message to Parents
Allow nothing to tarnish your child’s self-confidence, your child’s dreams and imagination.
If your child is excited about school, interested in the subjects being studied and bubbling with the joy of learning, nothing needs to be changed!
However, if your child is disinterested or unhappy about school, hates certain subjects and the bright-eyed-wonder of learning is no longer there, something must be done about it!
When regular schooling is not working for a child, we encourage parents to take their child’s education in their own hands. We offer home study help, affordable tuition, testing and placement, and customized programming for kindergarten through high school.
Middle school and high school students may work with parents on a home study basis or work directly with one of our online educators. Students graduate knowing how to learn, research and evaluate data so they can master anything they wish. Our Applied Scholastics Online diploma is recognized by universities around the world.
Message to Students
Your education belongs to you and you alone. You are the one who will benefit from it, or not. How much you create it, how much effort you put forth, how much you work at understanding what you need and want to know, how much you enjoy learning—these things are up to you. We feel you should be given the opportunity to fashion each subject you study along lines that are of interest to you personally.
Message to Teachers
Study Technology can easily be incorporated into any educational activity—from classroom instruction to home study curriculum. It provides a stable foundation enhancing all educational efforts. The broad use of Study Technology will help achieve a world free from illiteracy.
